Welcome to the Folly Farm Centre

The Folly Farm Centre is a venue at the heart of Folly Farm, a stunning 250-acre nature reserve close to both Bath and Bristol which is owned and managed by Avon Wildlife Trust. It is a very special place—a place to learn and explore, a place for inspiration, a place to lie in the grass and discover a new world. It’s a place for everyone.

Whether you’re seeking a conference venue, arranging team-building, planning staff training and education activities, or looking for the perfect wedding venue, the Folly Farm Centre offers you a truly unique experience. What’s more, all profits from the centre are gift-aided to Avon Wildlife Trust, to support its work with local wildlife.
