Not to be confused with Stratford on Avon or Bradford in Yorkshire, Bradford on Avon is a charming place for a weekend break in its own right. One of the big draws is the picturesque streets of this Wiltshire market town, with its many pubs, restaurants and independent shops, but that’s just scratching the surface really. Our hotels near Bradford on Avon will be your perfect launch pad for exploring nearby Bath’s Georgian architecture (Believe it or not fact: Architects say there are 5,000 significant buildings here), Roman heritage and lively restaurants and nightlife.
Book hotels near Bradford on Avon
Book a hotel near Bradford on Avon – such as our Devizes Hotel – and you’re in the heart of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside with its rolling hills, verdant pastures and thatched villages, all connected by miles and miles of country lanes. And now for something totally different, you get the bustle of Bath in contrast, and bustle is relative (Bath’s full of former Londoners who think it’s glacially slow, of course). Our Bath Central Hotel’s a stone’s throw from the famous Roman thermal baths. From the hotel, you can easily visit the town’s bars and restaurants. To watch professional rugby from one of the most scenic places in the country, head to Recreation Ground home of Bath RFC, it’s just half a mile away.
Things to do near Bradford on Avon
History buffs may want to visit Trowbridge Castle just 9 miles north of our Warminster Hotel. If you’d rather take in the last 5000 years or so, make the 20-mile pilgrimage to prehistoric Stonehenge. If the kids need a quick, fun jolt back to now, you should try Stonehenge’s 18-hole minigolf. Our Bath Central Hotel gives visitors easy access to the Herschel Museum, where William Herschel discovered Uranus in 1771. If astronomy’s lost on you, you’re also close to many other Bath highlights — from the Victorian Gothic abbey to the beautiful Pulteney Bridge spanning the River Avon.
