Owner description: Bradford-on-Avon Wharf was once the busiest wharf on the Kennet & Avon Canal. Today, it’s a great place to spot historic canal features.
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This is a great place to take a trip on a narrow boat, on a Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday morning at 11.30 you can take a trip up the canal for just £3.00 for adults and £2.00 for 5 and over children on the Barbara Mclellan Narrow boat. It only lasts for 1 1/4 hours which is perfect for little ones! There is a toilet on board and a cafe and bar for drinks and snacks, you can even buy pellets in a bag to feed the ducks on route . I am a disabled person and there is access onto the boat for wheelchairs as well. Tickets can be bought from the boat on the day from 10.30 am. Its a lovely peaceful trip and afterwards there is a great park nearby to have a picnic and for children to let off steam.
