1. A Picnic on Royal Crescent

This large greenspace in front of these Grade 1 Listed buildings is a great place just to hang out with your friends or bring a book and get some headspace. In the summer, head to the mini golf for an 18-hole about or during winter, head to the ice rink for some mulled wine and waffles.

2. A Step Back in Time at Sham Castle

Sham Castle, that overlooks the city as a Grade II listed building. Despite the castle, the view from up there is a sight to behold, and whilst you’re there you can head to the driving range for £6 whack about to get your anger out of your body and down the green.

Take a Walk up to Skyline Walk

6-mile walk starting at the east of the City Centre, offering views of rolling hills and architectural housing across Bath. This woodland trail is a fantastic trip to bring a picnic and a portable speaker to give you the headspace you need to getaway.

Kennet & Avon Canal Cycle
