Our Venue – Castle Park
About The Park
Castle Park is a Bristol landmark with a very rich and varied history dating as far back as the 11th Century and is a public open space in Bristol, England, managed by Bristol City Council. It is bounded by the Floating Harbour and Castle Street to the south, Lower Castle Street to the east, and Broad Weir, Newgate and Wine Street to the north.
Castle Park offers a blend of past and present, from the remains of a great medieval castle to the nearby bustle of a modern city centre. Nestled between Bristol Shopping Quarter on one side and the beautiful Harbourside on the other, Castle Park offers a quiet place to sit or stroll, whilst looking over the tranquil water. The park is also a focus for many pieces of artwork, from creative seats and a carved stone throne to a unique water fountain.
Our semi-permanent structure will be situated just to the side of Grade II listed St Peter’s Church which makes for the perfect backdrop for those stunning Winter evenings. The ruins of St Peter’s Church, which was heavily damaged during World War II, are unfortunately not open to the public.
There are steps in some areas of Castle Park however you can access the structure without having to use these steps.
There are great train (just minutes from Temple Meads), bus and car parking links, which allows much better access and allows people to go out afterwards and book hotels easily.
