You can make a day of it by walking along the canal from Bath city centre, stopping off at the Bathampton Mill for lunch, and then carrying on through Batheaston and up Solsbury Lane to reach the hill fort. After stopping to enjoy the fantastic views of Bath and the surrounding countryside, you can walk down the other side of... More

We walked up to Little Solsbury Hill while visiting Bath September 21st. The climb is certainly worth it. The day that we went the weather and disability were excellent. We took lots of great pics.

Beautiful views from beautiful Solsbury hill. Shame about the unecesssary dual carriage way so close. Build more roads, get more traffic, doesn't take a brain surgeon to work it out!!

This is one of our favourite walks. Obviously it's uphill on the way up - But it is worth the effort once at the top. The top is flat and easy to walk round with amazing views. Up, down and round the top once can be done in less than 2 hours.

First, how to get there. Coming into Bath from the A363, at the end of the road you will come to a roundabout. Do NOT go left onto the dual carriageway, take the second exit (directly ahead). Drive along a little way and look out for a sign which says St Catherine's/Northend. It's a tight turn! Carry on into Solsbury... More

Greats views of town and a fitting waypoint on any walk along the St Catherine's Valley. The old Iron Age fort landscaping gives it a little more interest.

good workout to climb this hill and see the fantastic views over the town of Bath. Then on to the Bathampton Mill to recuperate with food and drink

While staying with friends at Batheaston we went on some nice walks in the area. I'd recommend both the stroll along the canal in to the centre of Bath and also up on Little Solsbury Hill. It is a limestone grassland hill with a big plateau on top, believed to have been where King Arthur fought the Battle of Badon... More

I went while on vacation in Bath. The taxi drove me at 7 am. I climbed up, I saw the city lights, and a bird flew out of the sky. It was worth the visit. At 7 am, Solsbury Hill is very muddy and extraordinarily slippery. Be forewarned. If you are going to climb, you can't do it where the... More
