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 18 July 2014

My aunt & uncle were over from Australia and they don't have canals & narrow boats there so we went on an afternoon trip on the Barbara Mclellan Narrow boat. They loved it! It was £6 for a 2 hour trip and we went through 2 locks (same lock twice), we also went over a viaduct. It was such a relaxing afternoon out and on board there's a bar. There's plenty of seating inside, but you can sit outside at the front of the boat where you can really soak up the atmosphere. Would highly recommend. Plus where you get on the boat there's a very nice café which is reasonably priced.

The bradford on avon wharf contributes in a very positive way to the rustic and old feel of the town. Manning a narrow boat down into the canal locks adds a pleasantly satisfying feel to the holiday as the great gates are opened and the water rushes in- lovely to see this feature still functioning after its fair share of use.

I could not visit here often enough in our two week holiday in the area. It was a school holiday when we arrived and I was delighted with all the comings and goings.

The lock is a place of great interest with volunteers helping to open and close the lock. There are places to eat, toilets and wonderful walks along the canal itself.

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.
