Walk with the Georgians

Attending balls, 'taking the waters', visiting neighbours - in the 18th century Bath was at its most fashionable. The men and women of high society often felt the need to escape the hectic demands of the city to 'take the air' in the pleasure of its tranquil surroundings. 

With this uplifting walk the elegant Georgian boulevard of Great Pulteney Street leads you away from the hubbub of city life. Pass the Holburne Museum with their free to enter art collection and café, tread in Jane Austen’s footsteps in the Georgian parade grounds of Sydney Gardens. Follow the tranquil beauty of the canal to the National Trust’s Bathwick fields with their panoramic views across the World Heritage City to the green hills behind.

" I really believe I shall always be talking of Bath, when I am at home again–I do like it so very much…. Oh! Who can ever be tired of Bath?"
- Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

A highly varied self-led walk providing a break from the bustle of the city and as fresh perspective of the city's rich heritage, following a chronological trail of Bath's Georgian development.
