Clifton Walk, and Drinks in The Port of Call
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
10:45am - 2pm
Join us for our brisk 90 minute walk, which will head across the Downs to the Observatory, where we should get superb views of the Avon Gorge and the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and then return, passing beautiful Victorian and Georgian buildings in Clifton Village. Afterwards, some of us will go for a drink, and/or lunch, at the Port of Call.
Meet outside Cafe Retreat 10.45 am onwards, for a prompt 11.00 am start. Paul, (today's Walk Leader), Jeff, and Roy, will be wearing yellow hi-vis tabards.
Dogs are welcome on the walk, and in the pub. Please can dog owners be mindful that they may need to keep their dog on a lead, if it's causing any problems for other dogs, or walkers.
The walk finishes back at the cafe around 12.30 pm, but then there will be an optional five minute stroll to the Port of Call, for drinks, and/or lunch.
Today's walk is free, and is a joint event with the Downs Walking Group, (a Ramblers Walking for Health group). If you've not already joined the Downs Walking Group, please fill in a very short Walker Registration Form at the start of the walk. On the form, you are asked to tick a box 'to confirm you understand you take part at your own risk, and will seek medical advice if appropriate'. No payment is required.
After 9.00 am, you can park for free, for five hours, on Stoke Road, and the adjoining roads. Spaces nearest the cafe are often taken by 11.00 am, so please allow time to park further away, (e.g. on Ladies Mile, or in Saville Road), and then to walk over to the cafe.
