You will leave with a renewed passion for herbs. During Jekka’s HerbFest you will also be able to have guided tours as well as bee and medicinal walks of Jekka’s Herbetum, their collection of over 400 culinary & medicinal herbs, You can also explore Jekka’s Herb Garden, visit the National Institute of Medical Herbalists Health & Wellbeing Zone and buy herb plants (all grown in peat-free compost), seeds and illustrated gifts. Local artisan businesses will be selling their crafts from delicious herb chocolates to locally crafted cider and gin. Jekka’s is located north of Bristol in the South Gloucestershire countryside, north of the M4/M5 interchange off the A38, near to the old Severn Bridge. The nearest train station is Bristol Parkway (Bristol Temple Meads is in the centre of Bristol). Taxis are available from outside Bristol Parkway but if you would like to pre-order a taxi, one service available is Andy’s Taxis in Thornbury, 01454-414002. We recommend taking your taxi driver’s number for the return journey if needed. Please note: the farm post code will take you to the other side of the motor bridge. However, if you search for ‘Jekka’s’ or ‘Jekka’s Herb Farm’ it should bring you to the correct location.
