Full Description

The Avon Valley Railway offers not just a train ride but the opportunity to explore the delights of the river valley. With a round trip of almost 6 miles, train rides begin at Bitton Station and run between Oldland Common Station and Avon Riverside Station.  Within a short distance you can find country walks, a picnic area, public houses and the Bristol & Bath Railway Path, which follows the route of the former Midland Railway and runs alongside the Avon Valley Railway (fully tarmaced and offers access to walkers, cyclists and disabled users).
At Bitton Station our catering facility offers a wide range of both hot and cold food and drink 7 days a week, whilst our souvenir shop can provide you with a memento of your visit. For further information, please visit www.avonvalleyrailway.org
