Getting to Beeses

Whether by land or by boat, you'll find all the information you'll need below.


Beeses Boat

Enjoy a short trip across from BS5!

The Beeses Boat will operate when Beeses is open, depending on tides and skipper availability.

Last trips on the Beeses Boat...
Friday & Saturday 9.30pm
Sunday & Bank Hol Monday 6.00pm

Dogs are welcome on the boat, however we cannot transport bikes across. Sorry for any inconvenience.

During busier periods we may have to halt the service without prior notice.

How to book? No need! Simply arrive on the Hanham side of the bank and signal the skipper over. We will run regular trips back and forth throughout the day.

A return trip is £2. Cash or card will be accepted.

Please check our socials for the most up-to-date information.


By Taxi

With respect to the local residents we suggest using taxis, bikes or public transport where possible when you are travelling to Beeses.

Taxis will ordinarily drop you at Wyndham Crescent. The entrance to the lane is 20 yards down on the left, and is marked "To Conham Ferry". Beeses is located at the bottom.


By Bus

Coming from Bristol city centre the number 1 bus conveniently stops a short distance from us.

Get off across the road from the Good Intent pub, walk downhill from there and you will see the lane going through the park (it takes less than 5 minutes to get here). The bus stop shows up on the map below if you zoom in.


Disabled Access

As mentioned, Beeses is off the beaten track and is located on a slope, and whilst this is one of our most charming qualities, it means it can be troublesome getting to us if you have mobility difficulties. There are a number of steps, and ramps that are very steep.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


By Boat

Of course, you can come by boat! Perhaps your own or come with one of the ferry companies that run regular trips to Beeses (information can be found on the Ferry Trips page). There are weekly public trips, and all companies listed have boats available for charter.

If you have your own craft, we ask that you first check with a member of staff before mooring, although you will need to be prepared to move off temporarily if one of the larger scheduled boats is due in. We are sometimes asked by boaters if they can moor overnight and here are the main points.

Conditions of Mooring

1. Beeses is subject to several tides a year, and so we may have to say "No" because you probably don't want your boat to end up on our jetty, and frankly, neither do we.

2. If we do give you permission to moor, we won't charge you, but we do expect a certain level of consideration.

3. If we do give you permission to moor, all occupants are subject to Beeses terms and conditions.

4. If we do give you permission to moor, you are only permitted to leave the premises outside of our opening hours the way you arrived, i.e. by boat and not through the gate.
