Bath is a beautiful and historic city, so it comes as no surprise that it is the only entire city in the UK to be designated as a World Heritage Site. Most of the walk is split between two long-distance paths, The Avon Walkway which passes right through the city and The Cotswold Way, a national trail that starts from the city centre on its 100-mile journey to Chipping Campden.

Bath's best-known attractions can all be seen during the course of the walk, including Pulteney Bridge and the famous crescent weir below it - one of only a handful of bridges in the world with shops built into it; Bath Abbey with its magnifificent stained glass windows and look out for the unique ladder of angels engraved into the stone; the Roman Baths in the heart of the city which is one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world and not forgetting the Royal Crescent and the Circus, two of Bath's most iconic landmarks, consisting of a sweeping crescent and complete circle in three segments of townhouses in the finest Georgian architecture.
