The Bridewell

Take one listed Georgian gaol, a great team and no small amount of imagination and the result is this stunning transformation.
Located in the heart of the city’s commercial district, the Bridewell was a police lock-up for more than 200 years before we waved our creative wand. The 66 student homes and 21 short stay properties on the ground floor benefit from a state-of-the-art mini-gym, laundry and manned concierge service and remain enduringly popular.
