One of Bristol's best-kept secrets, East Bristol is the gateway to gorgeous countryside, wildlife and walks.
East Bristol acts as the jump-off point from the city into the countryside, mixing different landscapes from park to water to woodland, bursting with wildlife and scenic views and generally being one of the best-kept secrets about the city. Bristol has more green spaces than any other city in the UK and East Bristol is a perfect example of this.

Beyond the parkland you can follow the path down to the river Frome, where trails leads either towards Frenchay (home to the Glenside Hospital Museum) or, in the other direction, towards Snuff Mills, a picturesque and historic section of the Frome Valle.
