Trains to Bradford-on-Avon

It may be around seven miles east of the more famous Bath, but the Wiltshire town of Bradford-on-Avon is a considerable tourist hotspot in its own right. Situated at the very southern tip of the Cotswolds, it was built on the wool industry, and today its historic centre is a cluster of old mills, cottages and grand town houses, most built in the beautiful local limestone. With a riverside location, fantastic countryside and some genuinely historic buildings - look out for the Grade II listed Tithe Barn - it's pretty close to being the perfect package. Situated on the south side of the River Avon and a short walk from the heart of town, the local station was opened in 1857 and still packs considerable period charm. It's on three main lines: Cardiff to Portsmouth, Gloucester to the South Coast and London Waterloo to Bristol, so despite its relatively small size, it has connections to the southwest and into the capital.

Station details & facilities

The station's main entrance is in a large car park opposite the junction of Frome Road and the A363. The ticket hall has a small staffed ticket desk and ticket machines, and leads out onto platform 2, which has a waiting room and some bench seating. A footbridge leads across to platform 1, but there is no step-free access to this platform from the station - ask staff about alternative routes.
