An exploration of the layers of the history to be found on Bath’s southern skyline. Traces remain of almost every century of English history from the time of the Iron Age and the Roman and Norman occupations to the eighteenth century and beyond.

Also to be seen is a variety of animal and plant life, natural landscape and stunning views across the city. This is a shortened version of the National Trust’s official Skyline Walk and keeps to its upper and more level sections.

The terrain is varied including some uneven ground, steeper sections, steps and stiles. It may be muddy in places. This is a circular walk covering 5 miles in 3 hours.

There are shops, toilets and other facilities in the city centre, 10 minutes by bus.

The start and finish point for this walk is The Edge, University of Bath, BA2 7AY. Parking is limited nearby, and we would recommend public transport, there is an excellent bus service to the university. 

This walk is dog free please.

The walk leader is Robin Dixon.

Booking is essential, you can book your free ticket here – Book skyline.
