Welcome to the official website of Tickenham Village
Tickenham Village is located in North Somerset, between the towns of Clevedon and Nailsea on the B3130. With a population around 900, Tickenham enjoys good access to the M5 motorway, Portishead, Weston-s-Mare and Bristol. For rail commuters, there is a mainline station at Nailsea. Surrounded by open countryside, Tickenham is famed for some of the loveliest walks in the region.
The village is well served with:
- an Anglican church
- a primary school
- a village hall
- and a pub
along with a number of garden centres and other local businesses.
A vibrant community has built up in the village with many organisations and societies:
- Drama group
- Short mat bowls
- Twinning society
- Tickenham Flower Show
- Parents & Toddlers
- Social dancing
In 1992, Tickenham twinned with the French town of Aigné (near Le Mans). A popular twinning society has grown up around this cultural connection, with regular meetings, both local and between our English and French families.
