Hikers bewitched by Bath

The folks at Lonely Planet feel that the best way to appreciate the old Roman and Regency city of Bath, England is from above, as in the 10km Skyline Walk which traverses the hills that surround the city.

"Starting from the University of Bath, the trail links quiet woodland, rare wildlife, an Iron Age hill fort and architectural glories. The best views of the city are from Bathwick Hill and, just off the route, the 18th-century “Sham Castle” – like a Hollywood film set, a magnificent-looking facade with nothing behind it."
