Factory No. 1, Bedminster

Factory No. 1 is an award-winning residential development of conversion and new build homes located at the gateway to Bedminster.

Formerly the first tobacco factory of W.D and H.O Wills, a new chapter has started for the historic site, with 1 & 2-bedroom apartments and 3-bedroom penthouses for sale in Bristol. Urban homes are being crafted from the former factory’s buildings, alongside five new build apartment buildings, all set around beautiful, landscaped courtyard gardens.

Located on East Street, Factory No. 1 is just a short walk from North Street and its array of independent bars, shops and restaurants, as well as Bristol Temple Meads Station with regular train services to London or Cardiff.

An award-winning residential development


In recent years, Bedminster has created a name for itself as a hub of creativity for artists, developing its own distinctive character. It is hard to walk far without spying the conspicuous works of art by talented local street artists, including the world-famous Banksy. The Upfest Gallery on North Street is Bristol’s longest running urban art gallery and most years it hosts UPFEST, Europe’s largest street art festival.


For destinations that can’t be reached on foot or by bike, there is an excellent network of bus routes across the city. Regular train services run to both London and Exeter from nearby Bristol Temple Meads Station. Bedminster Station offers services to Cardiff, Exeter and Taunton, while a local service between Bristol Parkway and Weston-Super-Mare calls at Bedminster every hour during the week.
