Pub Walks in Bath

The Kennet and Avon Canal Walk

About the walk: Just outside of the hustle and bustle of Bath city centre, you will find the lovely Kennet and Avon Canal Walk.

A short walk up the river (approx 1.5 miles) will bring you out at The George Inn in Bathampton.

About the pub: This picturesque village pub sits on the very edge of the canal with a spacious beer garden (perfect for the warmer months!) with gorgeous riverside views. The pub has lots of character, as well as a hearty menu for lunch, dinner, drinks and kids. Dogs are also welcome here!
