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!

Solsbury Hill was made famous by Peter Gabriel's 1977 song...and he was right it is excellent. There are several routes up from Bath or Bath Easton and the National Trust has excellent on line guides. Walking up from Batheaston takes about an hour via Solbsury Lane and Swanswickl Lane. Evereyone goes for the view. As you approach the hill its... More

We parked in Batheaston (there is free parking on Coalpit Road, technically for customers of the pub or fish-shop, but there was no attendant and when we asked in the pub they said we were fine to park there). From the town it's a fairly steep walk through the village and up a single-lane track to the hill top, which... More

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!!
