Celebrating Bath's unique landscape by taking a walk
New to Bath?
The walks are free and most are accessible by public transport. You’ll be met by a local guide who’ll lead the way from the city to the countryside, or back in again. There are local authors, historians and wildlife experts on hand to help you discover and delight in the heritage of Bath’s landscape and take you to the finest views of the city! The organiser's top picks are: Three Bath Crescents; The Springs that Made Bath; Bath Skyline Walk Parts 1 and 2 (without uphill!); In Search of Lost Pleasures and Panoramas of Bath with Andrew Swift; and Lansdown Figure of Eight.
Explore your neighbourhood.
However long you’ve lived in Bath, there’s always something new to find and a tale to be told, with the glorious green landscape within easy reach of the city centre. Highly recommended: In the Footsteps of the Navigators; Home Sweet Home; An Exploration of Solsbury Hill; Windy Ridge Walk with Nick Hunt and Mr B’s; Steps to Heaven; and William Beckford’s Lansdown.
Walking for Wellbeing.
Being active outdoors (even a little bit more than usual) can improve your mental and physical wellbeing. The walks are free and friendly! They are guided by someone who knows the area, its history and wildlife well. For shorter walks check out the Skyline walks and Interfaith Pilgrimage.
More family events are going to be added nearer the time, as well as details of some fun at Bath City Farm. Several of the walks are suitable for children – you’ll know how far they can walk, and the bat walks are designed with them in mind.
