A 10-minute stroll down the road brings you into the centre of this medieval market town with lots of cafés, independent shops and beautiful buildings.

Bradford on Avon is an old wool town. It is known for its independent and artisan shops, cafes and restaurants and beautiful old buildings.

Don't miss the 14C tithe barn, the old Saxon church, and, if you've got strong legs, the Tory where you'll find the old chapel of St Mary Tory and get stunning views across the town and the Wiltshire countryside.

For a gentler walk, head towards Bath on the Kennet and Avon canal path to Avoncliffe (about 1½ miles), with ducks to feed, boats to watch and an amazing aquaduct where the canal crosses over the river. This walk has the added bonus of cafés or a pubs at either end.

Bradford on Avon has a traditional weekly market on a Thursday morning and a Farmers' market on the third Thursday of each month.
