How to get to Folly Farm
We encourage visitors to use environmentally friendly forms of transport wherever possible.
Walk and Cycle
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 long distance footpaths, Monarch’s Way and Mendip Way, pass close to Folly Farm.
Bus services 67 and 672, from Bristol, serve Folly Farm Centre’s local area and the Mendip Explorer bus is a great way to see the sites. We will happily arrange group transport to Folly Farm too - please contact us for more information.
Public transport information, including the latest timetables, can be found at Traveline South West.
