Ratcliffe Court is situated within the award-winning 'The Zone' development, one of the highest regarded in this area of BS2 near Bristol Temple Meads. The block is situated within the 'Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone' which is professed to be 'one of the largest urban regeneration projects in the UK'. Over recent years, many large businesses such as Bank of Ireland and Deloitte have moved into the nearby area along with the construction of many modern residential properties. In the next few years, regeneration of the Old Market area and work on the Bristol Arena is set to give this area a further boost and help 'the city come of age'. However, even without this further development in the pipeline the immediate area is so central and well-connected; there is little need for a car. In walking distance is Cabot Circus and the shops of the City Centre. Also walkable to the south-west is Bristol's popular harbourside, and to the North West is the bars and restaurants of Cheltenham Road and in turn, Kingsdown, Cotham and Clifton. For those looking to escape the city, the proximity of Bristol's main train station can only be a good thing and the M32 is very nearby in order to get to the countryside, London or the North. This area is also the beginning of the Bristol to Bath cycle path and with a large bike store, this development is ideal for keen cyclists.
