A warm welcome awaits visitors to Bitton and to St Mary’s Church. Whether you come to attend a church service or other community event, to explore the heritage and history of the church, or simply to take time to reflect or find peace, the church will be there for you.
The church is open every day during the months of British summertime, from April to early October from about 9am to 6pm. Unfortunately it is not currently possible to open in the wintertime due to the lack of natural light.
There are many reasons to visit Bitton and the church is just one of them. It is a village with many interesting features, access to great walks along the river, cycle path or the Lansdown Hills. There is an excellent village store and three pubs.
There is also the Avon Valley Railway, where steam trains still run.
Bitton is easily accessible by car. The A431 runs through the village, and it is served by bus routes to Bath and Bristol. The nearest mainline stations are Bath Spa (6miles) Keynsham (2 miles) and Bristol Parkway (7miles). Buses run from Bath to Bristol Parkway and eventually, Cribbs Causeway. Buses into central Bristol run from Willsbridge.
