about

Framing Bath’s south-east quarter, the Bath Skyline is a garden for the city: a place where people can escape, explore, and play. Featuring an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to the popular six-mile Bath Skyline walk, this guidebook will help both locals and visitors make the most of their visit to this picturesque countryside. Each key stage of the walk also features an insight into that area’s rich history, flora, and fauna. Discover where distinctive Bath stone was once quarried, the sites of deadly duels and horse-racing, where to spot jays, red kites, and multiple species of butterfly, and much more. Other features include guides to "Walk to the View" (a walk from Bath city center to the Skyline) and the National Trust’s Discovery Trail, a two-mile activity-filled stretch perfect for families, and whose surfaces are predominantly push- and wheelchair-friendly. There’s also an accessible introduction to Bath’s long history, from prehistoric inhabitants to Victorian industrial growth, including an insight into the city’s incarnation as a Georgian party town that attracted the likes of Jane Austen. Key figures involved in Bath’s development are profiled, including Ralph Allen, John Wood the Elder, John Wood the Younger, and Richard "Beau" Nash. A foreword by cook and television personality Mary Berry highlights what makes Bath so special, while stunning pictures throughout captivate the sweeping views that make the Skyline walk so beloved. Both practical and attractive, the Bath Skyline guidebook will appeal to anyone looking to explore more of the city, or looking for a souvenir of their time in Bath.
