“With panoramic views across the city, this hike shows Bath at its very best, but also gives you rolling hills, towpaths, aqueducts, and the perfect pub.” 

HIKE SUMMARY

“Bath is a beautiful, historic city built from the iconic stone that bears its name. This hike starts in its heart and carries you above and around it, showing it off from every perspective. You’ll encounter a folly castle and a real aqueduct on your walk through the woodland, along the canal and the river, with ample opportunity to put your feet up by the fire in the pub or reward yourself with an afternoon tea at cafés which have the Vespucci seal of approval and are waiting for you along the way. There are opportunities for wild swimming for the brave, and a shorter option to take you home from Freshford station if dinner and a well-earned sleep beckon! Along the way, you will even pass the final resting place of the longest surviving British soldier to fight in World War I. Once back in Bath, glowing from an unforgettable day out, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the city itself, with great food spots, charming watering holes and the gorgeous sights it has to offer. All of this and more within an hour and a half by train from London Paddington. “

Curator: Gabriel Bristowe
