The Avonmouth Docks are part of the Port of Bristol, in England. They are situated on the northern side of the mouth of the River Avon, opposite the Royal Portbury Dock on the southern side, where the river joins the Severn estuary, within Avonmouth. The docks are accessible via a 210m long and 30m wide lock.

Avonmouth Docks are one of the UK's major ports for chilled foods, especially fruit and vegetables.

The docks are on the rail network, served by Avonmouth railway station on the Severn Beach Line. The M5 motorway is nearby.
