Planning your visit

Opening times

We are open Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm except for Bank Holidays.

We are a small team so please make sure we know to expect you before setting off as we work across two sites and in the community.

If you would like a tour of the space and to find out more about membership and other opportunities, please get in touch.

Accessibility and facilities


The Factory is wheelchair accessible (access to upper floors is via a lift) and we have an accessible toilet. We welcome assistance dogs.

We can reserve a parking space in front of The Factory for blue badge holders; please contact us in advance by emailing to arrange this.

If you would like to have a chat in private about any access needs, just let one of our team know and we will do our very best to accomodate you.


The Factory has tea and coffee making facilities, drinking water and a small selection of snacks available for which we accept cash donations.

We have a kitchen area with a fridge and microwave if you wish to bring food to consume on site.

Our nearest shop is the Morrisons Local petrol station on Hengrove Way which is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive if you need to pick up food or essentials when you are here. You can also get freshly prepared hot and cold lunches to eat in or take away from The Park Centre Cafe on Daventry Road.

Please be aware that as of 28th November 2022, there is a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) in place around Bristol. The Factory and KWMC Leinster Avenue are not located within the CAZ and there are many options for reaching us which avoid it altogether, but you may cross a boundary on your route to us depending on your starting point. Check the CAZ boundary  and further information at the Bristol City Council website here.
