Bath: Walking from the University to Town

The shortest route from the university to the town centre is down Bathwick Hill. It is fairly easy to walk, at least when you are heading down. On the way up, you can use the Orange bus, which climbs up the hill every six minutes in days time during university term.

A book with these pictures is now available from koodibook.com.

Bathwick Hill is one of the most prestigious residential areas of Bath - and thus of England. Spectacular historical residences enjoy unique views over the city.


Further down start rows of town houses, while the view opens up over the valley ahead, with more town houses.

The road passes over the Kennet & Avon canal, where scores of narrowboats are resting.

Finally, we reach Bathwick, turn left at St. Mary's church, or at the Museum of Art, for the town centre.
