Celebrate Bath’s unique landscape by taking a walk

Bathscape aims to reconnect people with the unique natural setting of Bath and the surrounding area.

Thanks to support from National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery players the 2019 Walking Festival will take place between 14th and 22nd September.  We will also have other occasional walks throughout the year.

To get involved, please get in touch with the Bathscape team.  We are looking for volunteers to lead walks; your ideas for walks; sponsorship for the 2019 Festival.  But mainly we want you to come along in September and enjoy a walk.

We are very grateful that we have continued to work in partnership with a wide range of walk leaders, Thermae Bath Spa, Julian House and Somer Valley Walking Festival. Thanks also to Bath & NE Somerset Council (Public Health) and Bath City Forum for part funding the 2018 Festival from the neighbourhood portion of Bath’s Community Infrastructure Levy.


Walk leaders have planned and risk assessed walks with due regard to the comfort and safety of walkers, but participation is at your own risk.

Please do not walk if you feel unwell. Alert the walk leader if you have a specific health condition and advise them of medication you are carrying. If you have health concerns check with your doctor before taking part.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Please ensure that you have an ICE (in case of emergency) contact number that can be accessed from the locked screen of your smartphone, or if you don’t have a smart phone, then please carry a number with you.
