The Bristol and Bath Railway Path is a 13 mile, flat, off road path between the cities of Bristol and Bath. The path was constructed on the bed of the former Midland Railway between 1979 and 1986 and was the first ever walking and cycling path created by cycling charity Sustrans.  

A traffic-free, attractive leisure and commuting route and important wildlife corridor with access for disabled users, it’s no wonder that today the path is the most popular cycle path in Britain.  

The route begins in Bristol’s historic Harbourside, passes via Mangotsfield and Saltford before arriving in the heart of the city of Bath. Discover fascinating history, sculptures along the way and working steam engines, visit intriguing places nearby, connect to other walks and trails and refuel with a pub lunch along the way.
