"A beautiful Saxon Town" Bradford on Avon by Myfanwe
Bradford on Avon Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 70 photos
Bradford on Avon is situated in South West England just a stones throw away from the popular City of Bath. The name of the town originates from the 'broad ford' across the River Avon and the Ancient bridge is a natural focus for the town.
The town has many fine examples of architecture from the Saxon, Medieval, Tudor, Georgian and Industrial Revolution periods.
Bradford is surrounded by stunning Countryside, peaceful riverside walks and beautiful gardens. The Barton Farm Country Park is just a ten minutes walk from the town centre offering an oasis of peace alongside the River Avon.
