Walking

The compact nature of Bath makes it ideal to explore on foot, with many of the city’s most iconic sights all within a short walk of each other. And with countryside on the city’s doorstep you can easily take to the rolling hills and tranquil surroundings of Bath.
 
Escape the city centre and follow in the footsteps of the Georgians as you promenade down grand streets, stroll through public gardens and meander along the picturesque Kennet and Avon Canal. Take a short amble through the meadows of Bathwick Fields and you will be rewarded with a stunning view to the city.
 
You can push on for the Bath Skyline Walk, the National Trust’s most downloaded walk.  This six mile route will take you through ancient woodland, over an Iron Age hillfort and alongside abandoned limestone quarries.  Take a moment to stop by the Sham Castle for another beautiful vista of Bath.
