A POPULAR Keynsham farm park has been named one of the region’s top three large attractions.

The Douglas family’s Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park scooped bronze in the Large Attraction of the Year category at the 2016/17 Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards.

Avon Valley made it to the shortlist after three stages of judging, including looking at the attractions’ websites, online reviews, and social media and making “mystery visitor” inspections.

The Keynsham attraction was up against The Roman Baths and the National Trust’s Tyntesfield, which took gold and silver respectively.

Doug Douglas said: “I’m so incredibly proud of my team. I hope those who visit the park enjoy making as many memories here as I had as a child, and my daughter is making now.”
