Local information

  • Factory No.1 is located on East Street, at the gateway to Bedminster, minutes from North Street and in the heart of city life.

Additional information

  • From cigarettes to city living, Factory No.1 is a beacon of Bristol's industrial past. Its rich history makes for a compelling and interesting place to live. Located on the site of what was once a medieval hospital and then a tannery, the building is better known for being the first factory of tobacco importers and manufacturers, W.D & H.O Wills. The brothers moved their business from its premises in Redcliff Street to its first factory in Consort House (Factory No. 1) in 1886, celebrating the move with a high tea in the Cigar Room for all 900 employees. Famously both non-smokers, William Day Wills and Henry Overton Wills II were pioneers of the cigarette card used in packaging and were the first UK company to mass-produce cigarettes.
  • Their successful business launched many popular cigarette brands including Woodbine and Capstan. Towards the end of the 19th century and in response to challenges from the American Tobacco Company, W.D & H.O Wills joined forces with 12 other family-run tobacco manufacturers including John Player & Sons and Lambert & Butler. The Imperial Tobacco Company (Great Britain and Ireland) Limited was formed in 1901 (although the companies continued to trade under their own names) and Regent House became the company headquarters. Tobacco continued to be manufactured at Factory No.1 until the 1970s.
