In case you missed it see what’s in this section
1. Canal Path - Walk/Cycle
About: Starting either at Bath or Bradford on Avon there are various ways to make good use of this pathway (in fact there are several days out right here!). This path is buggy, dog and bike-friendly, and with various places to stop on the way, or either end for necessary toilet stops, refuelling or just to grab some water it’s a real Bath gem.
2. Bath Skyline
About: This National Trust Walk is a six-mile off-road path that takes in some of the best views of the city, tricky in places, wellies are required but we think it’s totally worth it. There’s a chance to use the climbing equipment in Rainbow Woods too if you can only manage part of the walk, and look out for the fairy houses too….. take a picnic if it’s dry.
3. M-Shed, Bristol
About: If you are craving some culture and history then jump on the train to Bristol and head to the M Shed on the waterfront. This free to access 3 floors of Bristol’s history collected over the years has a double-decker bus to jump on, a huge map of Bristol and lots of fun interactive sections for all ages. We know it’s in Bristol, which isn’t technically Bath, but it’s so good. ?
4. Bath City Farm
About: The Bath City Farm sits in Southdown just out of the centre and accepts a donation on entry, meaning that it’s affordable for all. Visit the animals, connect with nature and grab some farm-grown food from their café. This is definitely one day out in Bath that we recommend.
5. Victoria Park
About: Alright so we haven’t reinvented the wheel here but this big and well-loved park continues to entertain the generations because it has so much to offer. Firstly it's walkable from the city centre. It has toilets and a café so whatever the emergency, you are covered!
The playpark is in age-appropriate sections meaning your little ones are easy to watch/play with, and the bigger kids have their area too meaning they won't get in the way. There’s a skate park, a botanical garden to wander and ducks to feed, plus there is plenty of space away from the crowds if you need some quiet time.
