Bristol Life

20 Essential apps for life in Bristol

By JForrester 10 Aug 2021

Moving away can undoubtedly be one of the most exciting things to happen to you - but it can be pretty nervewracking too!

Surrounded by new faces in a new and busy environment is overwhelming, and that's why we want to make it a little bit easier. No, not just by using Google Maps - there is more to life...

1. Wriggle (Android / iphone)

For when you're hungry.

This handy little app gives you access to loads of food and drinks offers in many of Bristol's much-loved independent restaurants and bars. We all know it's essential to save a few pennies when you're a student, but that shouldn't mean missing out on Bristol's amazing food scene!

2. Uber (Android / iPhone)

For getting from A to B.

If you're rushed for time and don't know how to get to your lecture across the city, download Uber. This taxi service can track where you are (even if you don't have a clue) and will choose a taxi driver nearby, the rates are usually less than a regular taxi and you can pay from your phone, easy.

3.Headfirst (Android / iPhone)

For when you want to party.

This is the ultimate app, for finding out all the gigs, club nights and events going on around Bristol. The website is run a by a former promoter who puts an emphasis on the independent music and new talent that makes Bristol special.

4. Voi Scooter (Android / iPhone)

For sight seeing with style.
