Bradford on Avon

Less than three miles away from Trowbridge and nestled in rolling hillsides you will find the Anglo-Saxon town of Bradford-on-Avon.

With the River Avon running through the heart of the town as its name suggests, the small winding streets lead you to the undiscovered treasures the town has to offer.

There is something for everyone . . . shopping at The Shambles, with its collection of traditional and independent shops. History buffs will be intrigued by the town’s Saxon Church of St. Laurence, ancient weaving and mill buildings, and as well as the Tithe Barn, one of the largest medieval barns in England.

Families can enjoy lots of open spaces, especially around Barton Farm Country Park, play areas and longboat trips are available in the spring and summer along the Kennet & Avon Canal, which passes through the town.

Food lovers will be in heaven when they discover the variety that the town has to offer: choose from Italian, and Spanish tapas (which in our opinion are exceptional!), bistros, gastropubs or why not sit at one of the town’s cafés and watch the world go by . . .
