Ashton Court Estate Bristol

Book Tickets Online


The Ashton Court Estate was once the gracious home of the Smyth family, and is now a historic park just 10 minutes from the centre of Bristol. It covers 850 acres of woods and grasslands in total, designed by Humphry Repton.

Visit the Ashton Court Estate to discover the magnificent old oak trees and see the deer graze in an estate that first became a deer park over 600 years ago.

Sports and adventure

On the estate's higher ground, there are two 18-hole pitch-and-putt golf courses, with stunning views across the city. Orienteering and mountain biking are catered for with special trails, and there is plenty of open space for family games and picnics. A high ropes course in the beautiful Ashton Court woodland is open every weekend and every day throughout the school holidays.  There is also a miniature railway, which is also open at selected weekends throughout the year. For the more adventurous, Ashton Court is one of the few places you can take off in a hot air balloon or discover the unusual sport of Disc Golf.

Courtyard Café

And once you’ve finished exploring, stop in to one of the two on-site cafés to enjoy scrummy local cakes, freshly prepared sandwiches and a range of drinks and snacks. With seating indoor and out and space for the kids to play, the dog friendly cafés can be enjoyed year-round.

Toilets (including a disabled toilet) and baby changing facilities are available).

Parking costs £1 for 1 hour; £2 for 2 hours and £3 for 5 hours.
