Bath’s Skyline Walk

January 24, 2016

Bath was the city where I spent my university years and subsequently it will always have a special place in my heart. Having lived away from Bath for almost half a year now, I can finally see it objectively. Although it’s a beautiful city I would happily visit again in a second, I’m glad that chapter in my life is over. Now, I can move on to bigger, better things.

On one of my last days in Bath, my housemate and I decided to do the ‘Skyline Walk’. It took over six hours (thanks to us getting lost near the Cats and Dogs home) on the hottest day of 2015. We were left with blisters and the next week when my mum and sister visited, I decided to do it all over again.You start the walk on Bathwick Hill. If you’re coming from the centre of town, it’s going to be a bit of a hike to make it up the hill. In fact, the first hour of the walk is an uphill climb and can be quite daunting. If this doesn’t sound like your thing, you could take a taxi to the starting point to make your life a little bit easier.To begin with, you’re greeted with views of Bath, a city so pretty the entire thing is considered a world heritage site.I’d recommend getting directions from this website. The entire walk is six miles long and for fast walkers (not me) usually takes about 3 hours to complete. That’s if you don’t get lost or stop for a picnic in a field full of cows.
