Hengrove is a suburb and council ward of Bristol, England, situated between Whitchurch, Knowle and Bishopsworth, running along both dual carriageways, Wells Road (A37) and Airport Road (A4174). The area of Knowle it adjoins is known as Knowle West.
The residential parts of Hengrove consist mainly of working to middle class terrace houses. There are also infant, primary and secondary schools in the area. It is served by bus services 36, 50, 51, 75, 76 and 90 and, since 2019, MetroBus rapid transit services.
Hengrove holds the long-disused Whitchurch Airport, which has mostly been redeveloped with a hospital and leisure facilities now situated on parts of the former airfield.

Hengrove Leisure Park is located on Hengrove Way and is an out-of-town leisure park containing branches of several well known restaurant and fast food chains, along with an hotel, cinema and bingo hall. There is also a children's play park, the largest in Bristol, and skate park adjoining the site.
