Bristol walks: 12 amazing walks including one with an ancient woodland and one with an air raid shelter

Most of them have good transport links from Bristol city centre

Throughout the year, we’ve explored multiple nature reserves and parks throughout Bristol and nearby in search of what makes each park unique.

Each park has provided something for different audiences, but which parks have been the greatest walks?

Some highlights include Stokes Park Estate, a 108 hectare park dating back to the 14th century with a wooden sculpture trail, Page Park, a beautiful 1900s 19-acre park with an air raid shelter and an iconic four-sided clock and Leigh Woods, a two-square kilometre of ancient woodland with stunning views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the Avon Gorge.

From the best park for a picnic beside a beautiful lake, to a magical park with a stunning castle and parks with unique architecture, here are our 12 of the best walks and why they’re so great.
