We recognise that people will want to travel to Bradford on Avon in different ways.

We fully support the town’s aims to become Carbon Neutral by 2050, so strongly encourage people to travel here by alternative means to the car, if at all possible. The information on this page is designed to help you with this.

If you are coming from within Wiltshire then the Connecting Wiltshire website is a really good resource.

imagesWe are very fortunate that two National Cycle Network routes run through the town – NCN4 from West to East along the K&A Canal and NCN254 from North to South on road.  The Bradford on Avon Active Travel Map shows the NCN routes through the town as well as the cycleable roads and cycle parking locations.


canalYou may even have arrived by boat from Bath, Devizes or further afield so you will know of the plentiful mooring sites, and the closeness of the canal to the town. There are also narrowboats for hire from the marina. For further information visit the Kennet and Avon Canal site.


20170321-78ae021900bf292b00c326af09abf836Car parking is limited in the town centre. The best (and cheapest) place to park is the Baileys Barn car park off Moulton Drive south of the town, BA15 1BX. It’s right next to the canal by the lock, 1 minute to the Inner Circuit of the BoA Walking Wheel and a 6 – 8 minute walk to the town centre.
