Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on a few reviews on the web
Kingswood Heritage Museum is housed inside the 18th Century brass mill at Warmley, with its icehouse and windmill tower. Outside there are gardens and grotto nearby, with echo pond and a huge statue of Neptune.

William Champion's 18th Century brass works at Warmley represent an important milestone in industrial history. It was here that he developed the first commercial production of zinc in Europe.

Housed within the main building, this "Museum for Kingswood " holds a variety of enjoyable displays of local industries and social history of the area for all the family.

There is also a cafe, toilets, a well stocked gift and book shop and a family corner for the children. Thanks are due to Oldland Parish Council for funding enabling us to set up this area.

Bank Holidays (except Easter) £3.50 including access to Grotto.
Kingswood Heritage Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Bristol Edition.

  • fascinating local museum with much information on the industrial history of Bristol
  • I live next door to the Museum and I see the hard work that the volunteers put in to this amazing place . If you live in the Warmley aria go and see for your self ,
  • Kingswood Heritage Museum. A well presented local museum, particularly focusing on mining, non-conformism and various other industries which no longer exist. A blast furnace is incorporated in the museum. The local staff are very helpfull - and can provide tea.
