The Two Tunnels Greenway is a flat walking and cycling route which offers wonderful views of Bath's scenic Georgian crescents before it leaves the city behind. The path is a four mile stretch of disused railway line running through the Linear Park on the south side, to the disused Devonshire Tunnel at Bloomfield. The railway closed in March 1966 and physical work started on the new path at Devonshire Tunnel in 2010. The current Two Tunnels Greenway eventually opened on 6 April 2013.
Once out of the Devonshire Tunnel, you emerge into a deep, wooded valley as the route carves through the centre of Lyncombe Vale and heads underground into Combe Down Tunnel, then over the renovated Tucking Mill Viaduct. At over one mile long, Combe Down Tunnel is the longest cycling and walking tunnel in Britain and features interactive light and sound installations.
The route is part of the National Cycle Network, with routes to Radstock and Bournemouth in the south, and the Bristol and Bath Cycle Path in the west.
Whether you explore it on foot, ride your own bike, or hire one locally, you will find that the Two Tunnels Greenway offers you a scenically varied and rewarding couple of hours.
