Need to get out of the city. This is one of several places to do it. The views are great, especially around sunset and the walk is refreshing.

Made famous by Peter Gabriel, this is definitely a must see attraction. Lovely little walk, not too difficult and great for families or dogs (look out for cattle at certain times of year). Different routes available to get here. The views are great and the...More

It can be a little tricky to drive and park to this place but it is a great stroll around. There are public footpaths that join up to this hill though. get out the OS Map.

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...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!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
For a non-hiker - is Little Solsbury Hill daunting? From car park to destination & back, how long is the actual walk/hike? My first time in England is coming up and I cannot resist climbing up on Solsbury Hill! : ) thanks in advance for any advice.
