Mountainous glamping in River Avon guide

Overview

From the grassy banks of the Wiltshire countryside to the urban riverbanks of Bath and Bristol, the River Avon is witness to some of South West England’s most impressive scenery. Whether you choose to set sail on a sightseeing cruise, navigate its canal ways on a narrowboat, or pitch your tent by the riverside, there’s plenty to explore along the river. In Wiltshire, escape the crowds for tranquil waterfront walks or bike rides, and stop by the mediaeval village of Lacock. Further west, the UNESCO city of Bath and Bristol both have iconic bridges spanning the river—the Pulteney Bridge and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

When to go

Summer (June through August) is the best time to get on the water, and events and festivals are often held along the riverfronts in Bath and Bristol. Boat tours and cruises typically run from mid-March to mid-October, although winter visits are still possible for private groups. Many campsites stay open year-round, but be sure to check for seasonal closures.

Know before you go

  • The River Avon (or Bristol Avon) rises in South Gloucestershire and flows through Wiltshire, Bath, and Bristol, before connecting to the Kennet and Avon Canal and the Kennet Navigation. 
  • Sightseeing cruises or multi-day boat cruises along the River Avon are possible from Bath and Bristol. 
  • Most campsites in South West England require advance booking, and you may need to pay the full amount before arrival.
