The Best Places to Find Conkers in Bath

Autumn is almost here! And whilst that brings with it littered forest floors as trees shed their leaves, shorter days, longer nights, and colder weather, it is also the time of the year that conkers start to arrive and children around the country take to the playgrounds ready to do battle.

So with that in mind, the team at Total Guide to Bath have put together a comprehensive list of the best places to find conkers in Bath...

The Kennet and Avon Canal connects England’s canals from the River Thames at Reading to the Bristol Channel and is also one of the country’s most popular cycling and walking routes, making it a great spot to find some of Bath’s best conkers. If you’re looking for something to do with the kids then a walk along the towpath is a great daytime activity with lots of places to stop off and explore on the way. If you’re on the hunt for conker this autumn, then this is a must-visit location.
