Celebrate Bath’s unique landscape by taking a walk

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

Bathscape welcomes you to its first walking festival, to celebrate the nature, heritage and views right on the doorstep of the city. 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, thanks to the generosity of our partners, fantastic walk leaders and friendly volunteers. All the walks have a leader, so if you’d like to start walking or would like to discover something new and don’t know where to start, they will be your guide.

We have a range of 27 walks from a short stroll around Bath City Farm to 20 miles for the Julian House Circuit of Bath Walk, and anything in between. There are walks focusing on the history of the area, on the local wildlife or on getting your creative juices going. Have a browse through the list and find one that suits you.  Also listed in the walks section are the 14 walks of the Somer Valley Walking Festival.

For help with booking any of the walks, please get in touch with the Bathscape team.

Visitors and residents of the city have walked for health and well-being for centuries and the Festival will reinforce the healing powers of the landscape.  We are very grateful to our supporters.


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.
