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.
