Bristol docks are not yet open

We received this reply from the Harbour Master on 13th May. As such the docks are not yet open, and won’t be for a while.

Please see below- this is where we are for the time being.

As the Competent Harbour Authority for Bristol Docks and River Avon our current position is that our waters are not available for leisure use.

The focus of this department at the moment is on meeting our statutory duties and water level management. Those wishing to exercise unfortunately need to find an alternative venue for the time being.

We’re all looking forward to having this behind us.Best Regards
