Christmas and New Year walks

Christmas is a time to get together with friends and family and enjoy the winter countryside - from bracing muddy walks, to slow wanders with warming drinks at the end. Prior Park is open weekends and bank holidays over the Christmas and New Year period, plus the Bath Skyline is ready and waiting if you're looking to cover a longer distance and test out any new walking boots.
