Bradford on Avon is very well served by train and bus links, including Bath, Bristol and London.


In January 2011 Bradford on Avon became the first Walkers are Welcome town in Wiltshire.

 This was made possible by the support and funding of Bradford on Avon Town Council, Wiltshire and Swindon Ramblers and the Bradford on Avon Area Board (Wiltshire Council), in conjunction with Bradford on Avon Chamber of Commerce, Bradford on Avon Tourist Information Centre and Climate Friendly Bradford on Avon.


Set in the beautiful Bristol Avon Valley and on the edge of the Cotswold AONB, the historic town of Bradford on Avon is the perfect place for a walking holiday, with walks to suit all ages and abilities.


What does being a Walkers are Welcome town mean?


Walkers are Welcome is a network of around 100 towns and villages across the UK.

They have come together to help people enjoy the outdoors through walking. Membership of the network helps to ensure that our footpaths and facilities are maintained in good condition to benefit local people and our many visitors.
