11th to 26th September 2021
For families, walkers, nature and heritage lovers, or just for the views
2021’s Walking Festival is now open for booking! Our packed programme has been published below and on the Walks page.
In the run up to the Festival we’re releasing a monthly podcast, Bathscape Footprints – download from where you usually get your podcasts, or listen here.
Bath is a fantastic walking destination. Walking and hiking in the Bath area takes you to hidden valleys, iron age forts, picture perfect villages and the views are out of this world.
You can also have a look at our virtual walks page which has a host of downloadable walks and videos and other activities. We’d particularly like your feedback on the format of video walks – which would best encourage you to get out and about?
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.
Bathscape has endeavoured to supply full and accurate information, however it cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies or inconvenience this may cause. In particular, public transport information has been checked, but is liable to change, so please check arrangements before travelling.
When you book, we will ask for contact details so we can alert you to any changes to the published programme or cancellations due to weather.
Please be aware that we may take photographs, which might be used in social media and to publicise future walking festivals. If you would rather not appear, please let the walk leader know at the start of the walk.
Our walks and activities have been fully risk assessed. Guided walks will take place within any restrictions at the time. Self-guided activities can take place in your own time.
Please don’t attend if you’re displaying any symptoms, or have been advised by NHS track and trace that you’ve been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
We recommend that you regularly test yourself and don’t attend if you get a positive result.
Please bring hand sanitiser with you and use it regularly, particularly when passing through gates, touching other surfaces and before you eat.
We will ask you for a contact number when booking.
We may have to cancel events at short notice due to people being required to self-isolate or government guidance changing. Thank you for your understanding.
