Avoid the St Pauls and Hartcliffe and Knowle West areas of the city. These areas have a big drug problem and the crime rate is very high.
Also recently we have had a problem with unattended drinks belonging to females in the local nightclubs being spiked with the so called rape drugs.
There are areas of Bristol which are not really safe to go to if you are female and on your own at night.(unless you are good at matial arts of course). These are St Pauls, Knowle West, Southmead and Hartcliffe. You can go if you enjoy watching cars ablaze.
The centre of bristol can get a little wild on a weekend drunks going crazy, but that is just a warning.
St Pauls - try and avoid this area. It can be dangerous as it is an area where drugs and prostitution are rife.
Bristol Town Centre (Friday & Saturday nights about 1am) - very busy, lots of young drunken people. It can be quite daunting if you aren't used to it, so whilst I would say do not avoid it - use common sense here.
