Bristol is the headquarters for Leonardo's UK Cyber and Security team, with its staff of 150 mainly focused on cyber security and homeland security, as well as a small population of Simulation & Training specialists. Employees can benefit from networked hot desks, meeting rooms, a training and demonstration suite, and a board room.

The South West city was revealed as the most desirable location in all of Britain in the second instalment of the Guide, beating “stiff competition” from London and other major UK destinations.

One of the 19th century’s most famous and innovate engineers, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, had a close association with the city of Bristol. His ship, the SS Great Britain, is now a museum in the city docks. The harbourside is now an attractive, modern development filled with restaurants, bars, shops and hotels.

Anyone who enjoys the theatre can visit the Bristol Hippodrome – one of the country’s top provincial theatres, which hosts many major West End and Broadway productions. In fact, Hollywood legend Cary Grant (originally named Archibald Leach) was born in Bristol, and had his first theatre role at the Bristol Hippodrome.

For students, the city boasts Bristol University, which is ranked in the UK’s top 30 universities, and the University of West England, which offers a variety of highly respected courses across many subjects.
