Bradford-on-Avon is a picturesque town whose origins go back to the Roman era. Many compare it to a more compact and less touristy Bath. On the outskirts of the town is the magnificent Tithe Barn, dating from the 14th century, originally belonged to the nuns of the nearby Shaftesbury Abbey, the richest nunnery in England. It was used for storage of tithes during the Middle Ages, the Abbey being entitled to 10% of the produce of its tenants.

The town itself contains lovely river walks and a multitude of places to shop, eat & drink.
