Connecting town and country on the River Avon
Situated on the River Avon, between Bristol and Bath, Portavon Waterside and Marina is a prime location for your mooring. Here, you have easy access to the River Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal, in some of England’s most picturesque countryside. In this peaceful, leafy setting, there’s everything you need to enjoy the boating life, including a boat and engine services workshop and a fishing tackle shop. There is ample customer parking, and the pretty market town of Keynsham is within walking distance. Portavon Marina is a tranquil spot to spend time on your boat, while being within easy reach of Bristol and Bath.
Moorings at Portavon Waterside and Marina
At Portavon Marina, you are moored in a safe and secure berth with a range of facilities onsite and nearby. Our friendly Waterside Crew are on hand to help you whenever you need them.
Things to do in Bristol and nearby
Take the Kelston Roundhill walk from where, on a clear day, you can see the two Severn bridges, the Black Mountains, the Wiltshire Downs and the Mendip Hills. Stroll into Keynsham for shopping, eating and drinking, then explore Manor Road Community Woodland, where you can wander through woods and wild flower meadows, spot wildlife and enjoy spectacular views to the Cotswolds. For family fun, spend the day at Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park and for history and culture, head to Bath, just 8.5 miles by road, or Bristol, one of England’s most exciting cities, just 8 minutes away by train (or 7 miles by boat).
