Bath Skyline Walk

About

This walk brings to life Bath’s panoramic ‘countryside in the city’ views. It is designed to be really rewarding and highly accessible: easy to find, easy to follow and doable in only one-and-a-half hours. 

Attending balls, taking the waters, visiting neighbours – in the eighteenth century, Bath was at its most fashionable. The men and women of high society often felt the need to escape the hectic demands of the city to take the air in the pleasure of its tranquil surroundings. 

When the Georgian story began, Bath consisted of a couple of hundred houses and was still largely confined within its medieval city walls, but over the next hundred years it was transformed. 

Today you can follow in the footsteps of the Georgians – through grand streets, public gardens, along the canal and on to the meadows of Bathwick Fields where you will be rewarded with a stunning view back to the city.

Take in the vistas that revived the spirits of Jane Austen and her companions. This harmony of countryside and city has been recognised today by Bath’s designation as a World Heritage Site.

The walk starts in Kingston Parade by Bath Abbey. The terrain is mostly flat, with one moderate incline as you walk alongside Bathwick Fields. Café and facilities are available at the Holburne Museum.
