Enjoy panoramic views on the Bath Skyline Walk

Bath, Somerset

Enjoy a family break in Bath with some outdoor fun at Bath Skyline’s woodland play area before enjoying sweeping views across the city.

It couldn't be easier to enjoy a short family break in Bath; get your wellies on, pack a picnic and head for the National Trust’s Bath Skyline Walk.  This six mile circular route has perfect vantage points to view the city and the surrounding Avon Valley.

One of the main highlights of the trail for families is the woodland play area, home to a series of activities like tree climbing, swinging and a log seesaw. Let the little ones run wild before or after scoping out Bath from afar, and don't forget to visit the Guardian of the Woodland, carved into one of the neighbouring trees on the site.

Fire up your children's imagination with a short walk through the Long Wood Elf and Fairy Foray too. Found on the path leading west from the Woodland Play Area, this short trail has a touch of magic in the form of fifteen fairy homes, identifiable by their colourful doors. Take your children on this 1/4 mile route and see if you can spot them all!
