A MEMORABLE DAY TO COMPLEMENT A MEMORABLE NIGHT!
Bradford on Avon is laid out beneath you, just waiting to be explored.
By night she, like the mill, beguiles you with her twinkling lights and the exotic scents of oriental cookery from the many pubs and restaurants.
By day, she reveals her Georgian charms coyly and only to those adventurous enough to explore her secret courtyards, peer through half open doorways for tantalising glimpses of verdant gardens or be so bold as to stroke a few upmarket pussies who can generally be found sunbathing amongst the catmint on Tory!
This is not a town for those wedded to their cars, so abandon yours and head for the narrow alleyways and paths which stagger up the steep hillside zig-zagging between the terraces of trendy weavers cottages and pretentious clothiers mansions!
