How to get to folly farm

We encourage visitors to use environmentally friendly forms of transport wherever possible.

We’re easily accessible by bicycle, and the West County Way, part of the National Cycle Network, passes close by. For walkers, two well known local long distance footpaths are the Monarch’s Way and Mendip Way.

Public transport information, including the latest timetables, can be found at Travel Bristol and Traveline South West.

Bus services 67 and 672, from Bristol, serve the Folly Farm Centre’s local area. We will be happy to arrange group transport to Folly Farm too - please contact us for more information.
