The Splendours of Georgian Bath Walk


The City of Bath, famous for its Roman Baths and elegant Georgian architecture, marks the point at which the Kennet and Avon Canal officially leaves the River Avon on its journey to Reading and the Thames. A flight of six locks carries the canal up and out of the city, through the secluded and shady Sydney Gardens. In order to blend in with these delightful surroundings, the Canal Company had to construct a pair of intricate iron footbridges across the canal, as well as ensuring that the entrances to the Sydney Gardens Tunnel were formed of ornately carved and decorated Bath stone. 

This short walk also includes a stroll along Great Pulteney Street, one of the most magnificent Georgian streets to be found in Britain, together with a riverside walk along the banks of the Avon downstream of Pulteney Bridge and the famous Horseshoe Falls. This is altogether a quite superb town trail that will enable you to see why visitors have been flocking to this most beautiful of cities for close on 2,000 years.
