The Bristol Avon

The Bristol Avon connects Bath to Bristol

The Bristol Avon links Bristol with the Kennet & Avon Canal at Bath

The Bristol Avon is navigable from Bath to Bristol. But this waterway is tidal so it’s recommended for experienced boaters only.

The Kennet & Avon Canal connects with the River Avon at Hanham Lock.

The route takes boaters through the outskirts of Bath and into the Somerset countryside.  The waterway passes through Saltford with its Riverside Inn, Avon Valley Country Park and Keynsham.

Departing from our Bath base, it takes around eight hours, passing through 13 locks to reach Bristol Floating Harbour. The Harbour is home to a number of attractions, including Brunel’s SS Great Britain ship and Bristol Aquarium.
