Windmill Hill is situated in the south of the city of Bristol and is often referred to as being part of Bedminster. It is a predominantly residential location, and became popular in the 1990s and 2000s with students, artists and environmentalists, often sharing rented accommodation. The area has mainly Victorian terraced houses though there are also two residential tower blocks Polden and Holroyd House often referred to by locals as the twin towers.
Windmill Hill is separated from the rest of Bedminster by a railway line and Bedminster railway station and industrial estates as well as the Windmill Hill City Farm.
In the early years of the 21st century the area started undergoing gentrification which has increased house prices in the area. Windmill Hill remains a creative and community driven neighbourhood.
Windmill Hill has given its name to a council ward, which includes Totterdown and the southern part of Bedminster.
