Travel along the River Avon from Pill to Bath via Bristol on this delightful trail
You start off in the village of Pill, near the mouth of the river, and head to Bristol through the stunning Avon Gorge.

There's also fine views over the Grade I listed Clifton Suspension Bridge which was built in 1864.
The path then continues through the interesting city of Bristol and then on towards Keynsham where the river is particularly picturesque. You will then pass through the splendid Avon Valley Country Park which has a number of attractions for children.
