A 100-mile journey through quaint English villages and historical locations, starting in the market town of Chipping Campden in the north to the ancient town of Bath in the south.

Enjoy wonderful views of Broadway from Dover’s Hill and Broadway Tower. Explore Iron Age hill forts, and Jacobean Manor houses. Take in truly stunning views of Cheltenham from the high vantage point of Cleeve Hill or Charlton Kings Common. Enjoy one of nature’s most remarkable creations at Bill Smylie’s butterfly reserve.

Coaley Peak is an ideal spot to spread a blanket for a picnic, before tackling the steep rise of Cam Long Down, which rewards walkers with yet more spectacular views.

Further attractions include a rock formation known locally as the Devil’s Chimney, Crickley Hill Country Park, Wotton Hill where trees were planted to mark the Battle of Waterloo, and Dodington Park with grounds designed by Capability Brown.

Those who make it to the end of the trail are of course rewarded with the many activities and attractions provided by the ancient Roman and Georgian town of Bath, including the famous racecourse and abbey.
