The Great West Way

The Great West Way

The Great West Way is a new 125-mile touring route between London and Bristol based on ancient routes, roaming through idyllic countryside, quaint villages and elegant towns. 

At one end you have London, the ideal entry point with its world-renowned royal sights and rich cultural heritage. Then at the other, the exciting Bristol Zoo.

The Great West Way is for slow travellers just as interested in the journey, and the colourful characters encountered along the way. And the big adventures that lead to unexpected diversions. It’s about saying yes to new experiences and delighting in smaller, simple, special things – like spending time with friends and family, watching the delight on their faces as they see a Gorilla up close for the first time or hearing a lion roar.

Travelling the Great West Way

Thanks to the A4 Great West Road, the Great Western Railway, the River Thames, the Kennet and Avon Canal, and multiple foot and cycle paths, you can choose how you get around.  You can mix and match your modes on your journey to Bristol, too, depending on the length and breadth of your trip. Whatever crazy combination of boat, bike, car or train enables you to explore the Great West Way, from the famous to the far-out.
