Avalon Marshes

The Avalon Marshes is a spectacular and beautiful lowland wetland area with lush vegetation and a high level of wildlife. It is framed by the Mendip Hills to the north and the Poldens ridge to the south. On a map it is a wash of blue as a result of the myriad of ditches, rhynes and waterways that have re-claimed the land through drainage. Glastonbury town is the highest of a series of ‘islands’ that intersect the surrounding Marshes and the history and influence of the town has played a major role in the area. Described by many as being the most evocative part of Somerset, it has a distinct atmospheric feel and character.

If you are unable to visit the City of Bath, take this virtual tour, by following the link above.

Whether you have visited before, or this is your first time in Bath, this walking tour will open your eyes to a hidden world of yesteryear. Within a short walk, following the line of the ancient city wall, you'll hear about people who have walked this route before you. They include the Celtic Britons and French Normans, along with the Saxons, Vikings and yes, everyone's favorites, the Romans. Why not 'lend me your ears' for a walk and talk covering 1700 years?

If you are unable to visit the City of Bath, take this virtual tour, by following the link above.

After 1700 years of history, all contained within its ancient walls, Bath was reborn to become England's premier place of resort. It attracted many of the country’s aristocracy and gentry, but also the not so well-to-do along with them. On this walk, you can promenade just as visitors did then, and experience the glamour of high society in Georgian-era Bath. You’ll see architecture that has impressed visitors for 300 years – and by the end, in the words of Jane Austen, you too will be saying, “Oh! Who can ever be tired of Bath?”.
