Despite the published closing times stating 5:15pm the cafe was closed when we arrived at 4:15pm. So disappointed as the rest of the estate is stunning.

Parking £1.20 all day. Lovely hack around the edge of the park, plenty of open space to have a canter but can get very busy at weekends.

Ashton Court is great from everything from walking your dog to a wedding. I have attended many events here such as the balloon fiesta, prom and I have always had a great time.

This has to be one of the few gems that Bristol could boast about. Beautiful park land with hours of walking, safe playing for the children and peace and tranquility. Magificent trees and a stately home that should be the jewel in the crown. Unfortunately...More
