Avon Riverside is the newest station of the Avon Valley Railway. It opened on 1 May 2004.[1]

Unlike the other two stations on the railway, there was no original mainline station here. The first station was built in 2004 by the AVR.

There is no vehicle access to Avon Riverside. Access is provided for cyclists and walkers by the Bristol & Bath Railway Path, and by train from Bitton.

River Boats[edit]

Passengers can leave the train at Avon Riverside for a scenic boat trip on the River Avon. This is timetabled to link up with the railway service in both directions.[2]
