Bratton Camp and Westbury White Horse
About: Bratton Camp and Westbury White Horse is another view-based walk and is about a 30-minute drive out of the city, but it’s definitely worth doing with the dogs if you’re yet to visit as the views are spectacular and span across Wiltshire and Somerset.
The chalk carved White Horse, which is the oldest in Wiltshire, offers a huge amount of grassland for the dogs to explore!

Royal Victoria Park
About: A more local walk, but definitely a true gem, is the lovely Royal Victoria Park in Bath. Officially opened by the Queen herself (though Princess at the time) in 1830, the 57-acre park has plenty of room for dogs to let off some steam.
Although there are no set walks, it allows you to explore and roam as far as you desire – so whether you just want to take the dog for a long or brisk walk, Royal Victoria Park is ideal.

Prior Park Landscape Garden
About: Prior Park might be hidden away in the outskirts of Bath, but it's definitely not a place to be forgotten. As you can imagine, being designed by landscape gardener Capability Brown, the garden is a true spectacle.
Paths wind in and out of the woodland (perfect for dogs to sniff around!) and take you to the bottom of a valley where a lake lies as well as one of four Palladian Bridges left in the world. Dogs must be kept on leads in the park.
