The spectacular Dundas Aqueduct on the Kennet & Avon Canal is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. That means it’s as important as Stonehenge!

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.

I love a good canal walk and this is one of my favourite spots on a canal. There is something a little surreal about watching a canal barge going over a bridge. It's good to walk down the steps to check out the view of...More

There was no sign saying ‘Dundas Aqueduct’ so look for the sign saying ‘Canal visitor centre.’ The first car park was full, and hard to get out of if there are no parking spots, so skip that and go to the overflow car park. There...More

Parking is a rip off, as is all parking around Bath. They seem to be actually discouraging people from visiting this area, unless you come by bike or train. The aqueduct itself is pleasant, not the biggest, longest, highest or oldest. Just a pleasant place...More

The views from the Aqueduct were breathtaking and the flowers and bees made it a beautiful walk for us.

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.

It was great to see the narrow boats silently making their way down the canal. A great spot for lunch. There is some information about the canal system near the cafe. There are cycling paths along the canal.
