Great views and lovely walk.

Need to get out of the city. This is one of several places to do it. The views are great, especially around sunset and the walk is refreshing.

Walked up on a dull day, with virtually no one else around. Saw three pairs of skylarks. Met an informed walker who pointed out what we could see in the amazing vista, including the distant White Horse, as well as the city of Bath and just some of its lights. Didn't stay long enough to witness any eagles flying out... More

Made famous by Peter Gabriel, this is definitely a must see attraction. Lovely little walk, not too difficult and great for families or dogs (look out for cattle at certain times of year). Different routes available to get here. The views are great and the walk isn't that long. Worth a trip when visiting Bath. Things to see include ancient... More

It can be a little tricky to drive and park to this place but it is a great stroll around. There are public footpaths that join up to this hill though. get out the OS Map.

We regularly visit this place. It is hard to get to unless you don't mind a bit of an uphill walk or have access to a car. The views and the peaceful nature of the place are worth it though. Do wear walking shoes or boots as it can be muddy if there has been any rain. Also may be... More

A fairly steep climb up partly through field and tarmacked road (parking is very limited at the top) is rewarded ten-fold by the magnificent views across Bath in one direction, Bathampton Meadows and Bathford in another. Windswept at the top but the flat summit is triangular and an easy walk round the circumference. Steeped in history too. I am exceptionally... More

Parking in the car park at Batheaston it wasn't easy to find the start of the walk up. Once located it's quite a long slog up but well worth it for the stunning views. We walked down the other side then back up and retraced our way down . Lots of people up there , it's a popular place to... More

Solsbury hill is the highest point in Bath. Or so i'm told. It's a nice enough hill but if your time in Bath it restricted i'd recommend going on a different walk. For locals, if you haven't climbed this thing, are you really a local?

Thanks to Peter Gabriel's song, decided to climb up solsbury hill and overlook the beautiful surroundings. Can see Westbury white horse and a little maze first made back in 1993 is still there!
