Visiting Grimsbury farm

How to find us

Grimsbury Road, near Baden Road, Kingswood, Bristol BS15 9SE.

Directions

From Kingswood, take the A420 Bristol – Chippenham Road. Turn onto the Avon Ring Road towards Bath/Brislington. At the first roundabout turn right up the hill. Turn right at the mini-roundabout, and Grimsbury Farm is on the right.

Parking is limited, as we are a very small site, so if we are full please be prepared to return when we are less busy. If you choose to park out on the neighbouring residential roads, please be respectful of our neighbours and not block access drives, footways, or create pinch points that an ambulance or fire service lorry would not be able to get by.

Our gates open to the public at 9am and our staff team and all our animals are looking to seeing you soon.
