You can expect a fabulous day of walking and socialising from Sunday’s festival hub in the beautiful Ashton Court Estate on the edge of the city centre.
Ashton Court is an impressive country park with 850 acres of woodland and grassland and our Festival hub is beside the imposing mansion house. There’s lots going on including self-guided scenic walks, a Family treasure trail, street food to enjoy and a photo exhibition to take in. Here’s a taster of the walks on offer.
The Observatory walk
This circular route takes you through Ashton Court’s glorious parkland, across Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge and past the grand Clifton College, returning via the site of an old Iron Age fort where the Clifton Observatory now stands. It’s a mostly leisurely trail with a couple of gentle hills and some lovely views.

The Brunel walk
