The Bristol Socialist Society was a political organisation in South West England.

The group originated in 1885 as a local affiliate of the Social Democratic Federation. However, in 1886, it instead affiliated to the Socialist Union. When that group disbanded, it continued an independent existence until at least 1914.

The society initially enjoyed a high level of success, holding weekly public meetings and a wide variety of other propaganda events. Its members included Ramsay MacDonald and even Ben Tillett.
