  • There are no facilities in the Avon Gorge, between Temple Meads Station and Conham or between Saltford and Newbridge.
  • Chequers Inn at  HanhamThere are cafes and eateries close to the Trail in Pill, Bristol and Bath. Try Beese's Tea Gardens (summer only) via Conham Ferry and admire the surrounding woodlands and fields. There are pubs at Hanham, Keynsham and Saltford that are on the river and have great views as well as serving food of varying prices and standards.
  • OS The free River Avon Trail guide and the O.S. Explorer maps mark the location of pubs in rural stretches.
  • Formal seating areas are concentrated in urban areas, although picnic facilities are provided at Conham River Park. Cyclists who use the Bristol & Bath Railway Path between Bitton and Bath will find seating and, in summer, several drinking fountains.
  • Trailblazers with children may want to choose a section with a play area close by. These occur at Castle Park, Bristol; Locksbrook in west Bath and the really special Victoria Park also in west Bath, but nearer the city.
  • For information regarding B&B accommodation, camping, hotels and anything else you might want to know to build a holiday around the Trail please contact the Tourist Information Centres at Bristol or Bath
