Shirehampton Park

Shirehampton Park was donated to the National Trust in 1923. It is the home of Shirehampton Golf Club though there are many public footpaths crossing the land. This southern section of the Kings Weston Landscape is notable mainly for its spectacular views over Horseshoe Bend on the River Avon, but is also an excellent wildlife habitat. One of Kings Weston’s Areas of Special Scientific Interest stretches along the banks of the river and the meadows between the Portway and the Avon are particularly rich in wild flowers.
