Lansdown Plateau offers incredible views across Bath and its surrounding landscape, and it was this that played a significant role in William Beckford choosing to build his Tower there.

This walk with Dr Amy Frost will look at the views that can be seen along the ridge from Lansdown Park and Ride to Beckford’s Tower, investigating how they have been captured by artists, changed by development and whey their conservation is important.

The walk will take an hour, starting at Lansdown Park & Ride and finishing at Beckford’s Tower. The walk is mainly flat, but on rough paths, with some kissing gates and stiles. There are toilets at the start and finish (20p at the Park & Ride), and good bus links.

Booking is essential. You can book your free place here.
