Bradford on Avon

BA15 1DE
Credit: Visit Wiltshire


Set perfectly in the dramatic Avon Valley, Bradford on Avon is a rare combination of river, canal and architecture of true character – from tiny weavers cottages and ancient alleyways to grand clothiers’ houses and public buildings. Winding through it all is the River Avon, and the ancient bridge in the centre of the town remains its natural focus, retaining two of its original 13th-century arches.

There’s a great choice of places to eat and drink, from canal side pubs, award-winning restaurants, and cafes where you can savour local produce including cheeses, ice creams, chutneys and ales. Visitors can soak up the atmosphere amongst the town’s variety of independent shops, some to be found in the old Shambles with its half-timbered buildings.

Music lovers are spoilt for choice, with live folk, jazz, country and blues regularly performed in the town’s pubs, whilst classical and choral can be enjoyed in churches ad at the renowned Wiltshire Music Centre which attracts international musicians throughout the year.
