At 75 miles long the River Avon is the UK’s 19th longest river. As it reaches the historic city of Bath it meanders in a slow loop around the city and is very much a focal point of the town that is enjoyed by many.
Whether it’s the narrow boats that glide quietly along the slow moving waters or the bubbling weir cascading in the centre of town as the water passes under Pulteney Bridge both tourists and residents alike enjoy the river. Be it traveling on one of the many tourist pleasure boat rides on offer or simply lying on the grass next to the river or enjoying a beer along a more secluded part of the river bank there are plenty of picture opportunities that present themselves – just watch out for the dive-bombing seagulls!
The next post from bath coming tomorrow……..‘Bath Streets’.
