Ashton Court Estate information
Two miles from the city centre, this huge estate is Bristol's 'green lung', with 850 sprawling acres of oak woodland, trails and public park. It hosts many of Bristol's key events, including the Balloon and Kite festivals. There are also 6.5km of bike trails, two 18-hole golf courses and a miniature railway – and if you're really lucky, you might even spot a roe or fallow deer.
