The simplest way of getting here is on the D1 bus from Bath Bus Station - every half an hour, and it just takes 20 minutes or so. There is a loo and cafe on a canal spur near the aqueduct, and you can use...More

The Dundas Aqueduct carries the Kennet and Avon Canal over the river Avon. It is a very important structure that was opened in 1801. Parking, cafe, toilets all onsite.

A good place to visit with family to see some of the historical heritage of the canal system. The cafe was very busy but the girl providing the service was excellent

What could be better than walking the beautiful canal on a sunny autumn day and arriving at this magnificent structure? If getting away from the crowds and communing with nature is what relaxes you then take a trip to the Dundas Aqueduct.
