Within London, the most searched for place for potential buyers was Wimbledon while for renters it was Canary Wharf.

Rightmove property expert Miles Shipside said: “In the last year the price of property coming to market in Bristol has risen by 2.3%, well above the national average of 0.8%.

“Though this is good news for those already on the property ladder, it makes it harder for first-time buyers to get onto it.

“These are dynamics that are likely to continue, making Bristol a good place to invest.”
