The beautiful natural landscape surrounding the city of Bath, rich in its 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.  Explore it, learn from it, or volunteer and help us restore it.

Update August 2020

During this time, when our group volunteering activities and public events were suspended, we updated our Learn page with resources and activities people can do with families or on their own, in and around their home, and will be adding some more articles to this page soon.

Want inspiration for new places to explore? Have a look at our Map and list of places that are close to the city, but feel like the countryside.

Our activities and volunteering sessions are starting to reopen, and will appear on our volunteering and events page when they’re ready.
