Fishponds is a residential area with a small town feel. While it may not be the most convenient location, rent is fairly cheap so you can still find quite a few UWE students living here who have lectures at the Glenside Campus. There are a few local cafes and pubs to visit in the area. However, be prepared to travel for nights out.
