Prior's Wood

About

Once part of the Tyntesfield Estate, ancient trees, streams and plantations can all be found in this wildlife-rich woodland. In Spring, the woodland transforms into a stunning field of bluebells, with the best displays in the western and southern areas. Home to a variety of birds, such as the garden warbler, chiffchaff, spotted flycatcher and buzzard, Prior’s Wood is ideal for getting away from the busy city centre, enjoying beautiful nature, or having a family day out.

The best time to visit the woodland is between April and November, but it is open at all times. Dogs are permitted, but must be kept on a lead. There are public footpaths throughout the wood, but can be muddy and steep-sided. The woodland takes 20-25 minutes to reach from Bristol city centre by car, and 35 minutes by bus. Entry to the nature reserve is free of charge.
