Warmley is a village in South Gloucestershire, England, to the east of Kingswood on the outskirts of Bristol.

In the mid 18th century it contained the Warmley Works of William Champion. It is the home of two football teams, Warmley F.C. and Warmley United, and the brewery Bath Ales.

The Bristol & Bath Railway Path passes through Warmley. It was formerly served by Warmley railway station.

One of its most famous residents is Neil Wilmer, famed for working on the hit television shows Deal or No Deal, Springwatch, The Renovation Game and Dickinson's Real Deal.[citation needed]

Warmley features a public green space known as Warmley Forest Park, which includes a skate park and a scout hut. Siston Brook flows through Warmley Forest Park, and a fantastic tree swing is positioned over the brook.

The Warmley War Memorial Park sits on the High Street opposite the landmark sign of the bicycle shop which has been plying its trade in the heart of the village since the beginning of the 20th century.

The 21st century has seen a 'ring road' snake around the edge of the village bringing with it its encumbant services and turning the local garage into an ' tesco express' fuel and grocery shop.
