Bath is a landscape city.  Rich in geology, wildlife, history and heritage, the Bathscape area is yours to discover and enjoy.  Hills, valleys, grasslands and woodlands, there’s so much to see, and it’s all within easy reach of the city centre.

Want inspiration for new places to explore? Watch our video or have a look at our map of places to visit and self-guided walking trails that are close to the city, but feel like the countryside. We have events and weekly walking groups throughout the year. Or listen to our podcast.

Owners of grassland or woodland can benefit from our free advisory service to help make their land more wildlife friendly.  Contact us as below.

Accessibility Information

We strive to make our activities as accessible possible.

Our guided walk descriptions in the walking festival and during the year give information about distance, terrain, obstacles etc, however if you require any further information about them please do contact us.

On some of our longer walks, led by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, by arrangement we can provide a trained guide to assist blind and partially sighted people.  Walks on our Events page have extra detail.

Our weekly wellbeing walks are suitable for people who may have limited mobility.  The Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday walks are the shorter ones, step free/flat, mainly paved and go at the pace to suit the group.  Thursday walks are suitable for wheelchair users and start at Monksdale Road Allotments.  The wellbeing walks start or finish within reach of toilets and public transport.

We have organised bespoke walks/events for people with complex needs including taking students from Three Ways Schools on nature activities and people from Carrswood Daycare centre on sensory visits to the woods. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss arranging something similar.

We have hard copies of our urban tree trails to compliment the guided walks, please get in touch if you’d like some.

We have included some wheel-friendly walks in our new collection of walking routes, along with videos to show you what to expect.  Wildlife on Wheels in the Twerton area and Highlights of Royal Victoria Park are good places to start.  We’ve produced a walking booklet which shows walks of up to 4 miles, with accessibility information included.

We are working to update our pdfs so they are better for digital readers.  If there are any features on our website that could be improved for you, please get in touch.

To discuss any access requirements, please contact us – or 01225 477 265.
