Bradford-on-Avon

Bradford-on-Avon (sometimes Bradford on Avon) is a town in west Wiltshire, England with Roman origins. It has several buildings dating from the 17th century, when the town grew due, to the thriving English woollen textile industry.

The town lies partly on the Avon Valley, and partly on the hill that marks the Vale's western edge, eight miles southeast of Bath, in the hilly countryside between the Mendip Hills, Salisbury Plain and the Cotswold Hills. The local area around Bath provides the Jurassic limestone (Bath Stone) from which the older buildings are constructed. The River Avon (the Bristol Avon) runs through the town.

The town's canal, historic buildings, shops, pubs and restaurants make it popular with tourists. Not to mention its utter charm and picturesque fairytale vibes.
