Celebrate Bath’s Unique Landscape with a Choice of 24 Glorious Walks

This September, Bathscape Landscape Partnership is holding its first walking festival, to celebrate the landscape, heritage and views in easy reach of the city.

There is a range of walks, from a short easy stroll around Bath City Farm to the more challenging 20 mile Julian House Circuit of Bath Walk, and lots in between. You can explore Somer Valley, discover the wildlife in Smallcombe Cemetery and Carr’s Wood, or take a longer walk to Little Solsbury Hill.

Lucy Bartlett, Community & Access Officer at Bathscape said: “Whether you want to walk longer distances enjoying stunning views across the city, explore the nature in your local area or just meet people and get some fresh air, there’s a walk for you.

All the walks are free and are led by fantastic walk leaders supported by friendly volunteers. The only exception is The Circuit of Bath Walk on Sunday 24th September that is the Julian House charity annual sponsored walk. This year is the 30th year that the charity has been supporting homeless and excluded men and women in Bath, so what better time to enjoy Bath’s beautiful surrounding countryside and make a difference to people’s lives.

The Bathscape Walking Festival is part of the Bathscape Landscape Partnership scheme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is intended that the Festival will become an annual event and bring recognition for the health-giving powers of the landscape.

The Walking Festival is also grateful to local supporters Thermae Bath Spa and Wessex Water as well as all National Lottery players who help fund HLF projects.

Peter Rollins, Marketing and Communications Director at Thermae Bath Spa, said: “As the country’s only day spa with access to Bath’s naturally warm mineral rich waters, wellness is truly at the heart of Thermae Bath Spa. Local residents and visitors to Bath all come to experience the famous therapeutic waters, just as the Celts and Romans did over 2000 years ago. Owing to this association with wellness,

Bathscape Walking Festival feels like a natural fit for us as a thermal spa, so we were delighted to get involved. Bathscape have planned some fascinating walks incorporating and celebrating the local heritage, which will prove beneficial for both body and mind for local residents and visitors from further afield.”

Dyrham Park

Dyrham Park is a National Trust owned park, property and estate located on the outskirts of Bath.

You're almost up in the clouds though - so be sure to wrap up!

The formal gardens are just as much as a treat with stunning seasonal flowers and gorgeous deep reds, bright oranges' and golden brown leaves scattering the paths.
