Community work

We are proud of our integration efforts in every city we call home and our Bristol office is no exception. Here, the Womble Bond Dickinson office is home to a large CSR focus group committed to developing long-lasting relationships with charity partners to maximise social impact through fundraising, mentoring, volunteering, donations and pro bono work. This year, the main chosen local charity for our Bristol law firm is SARSAS.

We also supported the Grand Appeal summer art trail, Gromit Unleashed 2, which officially opened on 2 July 2018. We sponsored 'Wallambard' – a Wallace sculpture that was located near the SS Great Britain.

It is our belief that, by working directly with the local community in Bristol, we are not only able to do some good, but also build a stronger connection to our clients from this region.

Directions

Located in Temple Back East in the City of Bristol, the Womble Bond Dickinson office can be reached easily by car or train. If you’re looking to visit our Bristol office, simply follow the directions below.

  • By car: From M5 Junction 15 and M4 east or westbound. Exit the M4 at Junction 19 onto the M32 and follow this to Bristol city centre. At the end of the M32, take the middle lane as you approach the traffic lights and bear left. After the traffic lights move into the left lane and follow signs for Broadmead and Bristol Airport. Bear right, going through an underpass, following signs for A4, A37 and Temple Meads, keep to the left hand lane, sign posted to Bath and Wells. At the first set of traffic lights, you will see the Royal Bank of Scotland on your left, continue straight ahead, at the next set of traffic lights, remain in the left hand filter lane and turn left into Temple Back East. Our building is the first on the left when you turn into Temple Back East.
  • By train: Bristol Parkway is approximately 20 minutes’ journey by taxi. Bristol Temple Meads is less than a 5 minute walk from our offices. Exit the station via the car park to the right, not the main station exit. Follow the signs to Temple Quay and the water ferry. Walk past the row of shops on your left until you reach the Square. Walk across the Square, and turn left into Temple Back East. Cross over the road and Womble Bond Dickinson is the last building on the right before you reach the main road.
  • Parking: A limited number of parking spaces under 3 Temple Quay can be booked in advance and are accessed from the rear of the premises via Rope Walk (the riverside loop extension of Temple Back East). To access our car park, you need to pass our building and continue along Temple Back East, passing the Square on your right. As you pass the square, the road turns to the left, forming a horseshoe shape so that you are coming back on yourself, with the river Avon now to your right. Continue to the very end of the road and you will reach the shutter entrance to our car park. Approach the left hand shutter gate and press 8 followed by the bell sign, reception will let you in. The nearest public car park can be found behind the Hilton Garden Inn (previously City Inn hotel), opposite Temple Quay, but has limited spaces. The nearest NCP car park can be found a 10 minute walk away, across Bristol Bridge, on Queen Charlotte Street in the city centre. Car parking spaces are also available at Temple Meads Station but these can be extremely busy.
