The Bathscape Walking Festival is now underway, offering families a variety of routes to help them explore wonderful destinations around the city of Bath.

The new, self-guided walking trails can be downloaded, including a family walk around Englishcombe and the Cleveland Pools Trust new walk.  People can enjoy videos of previous walks, including the popular Bath Story Walk and Haile Selassie’s time in Bath, then retrace the routes themselves.

There is also the chance to join a live zoom walk or go on a mindfulness tour of Sydney Gardens. Other suggestions include reading a chapter of Andrew Swift’s new book before enjoying the walk itself, or see September’s Nature Trail and carry out your own minibeast hunt. There’s something for everyone and people can find inspiration from Bathscape’s virtual walks.

Follow Bathscape on social media over the next two weeks to find out lots of information about trees in the #treesofbathscape campaign. 

The Julian House Circuit of Bath walk closes the Festival on September 27. With stringent measures in place to keep everyone safe, registration for the sponsored walk has now closed due to high demand for places. Anyone who wasn’t able to enter but wishes to donate can do so at
