HorseWorld Visitor Centre

HorseWorld Visitor Centre is set in beautiful Mendip-stone farm buildings on the southern edge of Bristol. HorseWorld was set up in 1952 as a registered charity by a group of volunteers who wanted to save unwanted animals from unnecessary slaughter.

Visit the centre and meet some of the recovered horses, ponies and donkeys that have been rescued and rehabilitated.

Visitors can meet the animals (selected times only) and ‘Touch & Groom’ in certain areas where you can get up close to some of the miniature Shetlands and Donkeys.
Other attractions include the indoor Play Barn with huge slides, a ball pool, soft play for under 3’s and an outdoor adventure playground! Daily presentations are at 11am and 2pm and there is a miniature farmyard of smaller animals including goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs. You can also walk around the nature trail to enjoy the scenery of HorseWorld’s stunning site.
