Bevois Valley (// BEE-vis) is an inner city area of Southampton, England, within Bevois Electoral Ward, and includes areas called Bevois Town and Bevois Mount. The area lies south of and adjoins Portswood and is within easy walking distance of the city centre. It follows the line of the original valley of the River Itchen and as such the land is primarily clays and shingles.
Bevois Valley has a primary school (Bevois Town Primary School), a church (Bevois Town Church) and two gurdwaras. The nearest railway station is St Denys railway station. It has recently been the recipient of EU money for improvement.
Although it is further from the University of Southampton than Portswood it is a popular location for students (possibly due to the proximity of Southampton Solent University), though there is a higher proportion of permanent residents. There are many takeaways and venues catering for students and locals. Along with Portswood, it is also increasingly seen as home to Southampton's burgeoning music scene, with many venues now offering regular live music and opportunities for local musicians as well as nationally and internationally acclaimed acts.
