Bath & Avon

Bath & Avon

If there is something such as a country city then surely Bath is it. Surrounded by wooded hills, graced by beautiful bath stone buildings, the River Avon flowing through, its a stunning spot. And it’s home to Foot Trails HQ!

We love all the architecture and the rich history of Bath but also the countryside that sits on its doorstep. Quiet valleys, tucked away villages, stories of mills and canals, perfect for your walking vacation.
