Welcome to the Bristol Commonwealth Society, an integral part of the City’s history for over one hundred years and located right in the heart of vibrant Clifton.

Members enjoy  a varied programme of events from a range of interesting talks and film nights to outside visits and informal social occasions.  Our comfortable Club Room and bar is the perfect place to relax over lunch, coffee or a glass of wine.  BCS members also benefit from on-site parking.

CALLING ALL BUSINESSES.  Did you know we offer corporate membership fees?  Would you like a space for you and your colleagues to relax and maybe have drink in our private bar.  Perhaps you hold staff training meetings or would like to privately entertain clients.  Come and take a look at our conference and dining space with its large screen and multi media facilities.  Ever considered the benefits of having your own private club in the centre of Clifton!  We also offer on-site parking.  Contact Gina and we can tailor a membership package to suit your business needs.
