THE WILTSHIRE GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Bradford on Avon is the last outpost of the Cotswolds. A town of just 10,000 souls straddling both river and canal it is immensely picturesque, and neither as well known nor as crowded as Bath.
We begin with a two-
After lunch we take just a few steps to see the town lock up on the bridge and the gold Olympic post box for a local 2012 hero.
Bradford grew wealthy from the wool trade and a generous share of the profits went on exquisitely carved corbels and town houses in buttery ashlar stone. The Saxon church is a rare survivor famous for two soaring stone angels.
Sit back and relax for a coach tour to enjoy an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We take an attractive route to enjoy the Bath skyline before dipping into the valley to see the highlights of the Georgian city -
the Royal Crescent, Queen Square and beautiful Pulteney Bridge with the River Avon cascading over the weir. Effortless for older legs! We stop to buy tea at Lacock where the new houses are 18th century.
Cottages and inns dating back to the 15th century form the backdrop to a timeless and much filmed scene.
You'll be heading home at 4.45pm.
