What is England’s Great West Way?

England’s Great West Way® is a new touring route, stretching between London and Bristol. It follows a 125 mile route based on the one of the first Great Roads commissioned by the Kings of England.

The route encourages visitors to travel by car, rail, boat, bike, or on foot and to get off the beaten track to discover the towns and villages that make up this diverse meandering path through southern England. From Cotswolds villages to exploring the Kennet and Avon Canal by narrowboat, the route joins up both key icons and lesser known destinations.
