For one evening only, Boiling Wells will again get a UV makeover. With the usual live music, BBQ & bar, plus wood fire, free s'more circle, UV facepainting, our famous UV barn Kid's Rave, and much more!

Our City Farm in the heart of Bristol

Inspiring places, Educating people and Connecting communities

We're open to the public seven days a week (from 9am to 4pm in winter, and to 5pm in summer). Entry is free.

We care for four inspiring green spaces, in the heart of the city, where we keep animals, grow vegetables and learn about the outdoors. We help people gain skills for life and get people involved in their local community.

Visit us

Come and see what we're up to - meet the animals, or stroll through the community gardens.

Treat yourself to refreshments from the award winning farm cafe overlooking our adventure playground. (Please note the cafe will be temporarily closed Tuesdays AND Wednesdays during October).

Get a £1 bag of feed from a member of staff to hand feed the animals, or follow our new green energy discovery trail around the Farm.
