About Us

Come and discover Bristol’s best kept secret. Beeses Tea Gardens was founded in 1846 by Mrs Beese, who provided refreshments to the many travellers using the Conham Ferry, the captain of which was Mr Beese.

The Conham Ferry runs from Beeses to the Hanham side of the river, and is the oldest river ferry crossing on the River Avon. We are delighted to carry on the tradition by operating the ferry during our opening hours.

Situated beside a deeply running river Avon below a steeply wooded bank, Beeses is a haven of tranquility where generations of city dwellers have - for a few hours, anyway - put the cares of the city behind them. Just as in the old docks, visitors who have not made the trip upriver from the Feeder to Conham for a few years will find that the views, with perhaps the exception of the chimney on Troopers Hill, have changed dramatically.

How to get here
The Conham ferry is operated by Beeses across the river Avon, and is available during opening hours (river conditions permitting). There is a nominal charge of 25p each way for adults, children, buggies and bikes - dogs go free!

You can park in the Conham Road car park and follow the river bank round to our steps. Ring our rudimentary bell and we’ll come and get you. The car park closes at 10:00 p.m. every evening apart from Fridays and Saturdays when it closes at 11:30 p.m. (until the end of September).

You can drive to Beeses, where there are a limited number of spaces. The lane is marked “To Conham Ferry”, and is adjacent to the last house on the right in Wyndham Crescent when turning in from Broomhill Road. The lane is an unadopted road, so care should be taken when driving down. You may prefer to park in Wyndham Crescent or Eastwood Crescent.

You can also catch the number 1 bus, getting off outside the Good Intent pub. Walk downhill from there, and you will see the lane going through the park (it takes less than five minutes to get here).

And of course, you can come by boat. If you have your own craft you can use our newly extended moorings, although you will need to be prepared to move off temporarily if one of the larger charter boats is due in. Alternatively, you could come with one of the ferry companies. You can find contact details for all the companies that run trips to Beeses on our links page. There are weekly public trips to Beeses from the city centre, and all the companies listed have boats available for charter.
