Tockington is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. Historically the village developed around farming based mainly on the rearing of cattle on the fertile flood plains. In more recent times Tockington has become an attractive location for commuters, being situated within the Green Belt and well connected with Bristol. It is south of Olveston and is located in a steep valley. Tockington Manor is a boarding preparatory school, which opened in 1947. The village also has the Swan Inn, a popular pub. The centre of the village, where the pub is located is a triangular junction.
