Bradford on Avon is an old Saxon town which is full of beautiful streets and buildings. Places of note are the Town Bridge, the Saxon church and the Tithe Barn but it is the generally unspoilt feel of certain parts of the town that is its major attraction. The area around Barton Orchard, Chantry, Newtown and St Mary Tory is perhaps the best example of this but there are many lovely buildings, street and 'cut throughs' present throughout the town. The town is also a good base for visiting places throughout Avon, Somerset and Wiltshire. Bath is just a 12 minute train jouney away, or 15 minutes by car. If you have the time you can even walk or cycle there along the canal towpath. Bristol and Salisbury can also be visited by train. Stonehenge is within easy reach by car, as are Longleat, Lacock Abbey, Stourhead, Castle Combe, the Avebury stones and Silbury. There are a number of National Trust properties in the area, those like Stourhead and Lacock are known nationally but there are a number very close to Bradford on Avon. The Courts and Chalfield Manor are particularly worth a visit.
