Keats' Walk: introduction
Keats' Walk is a self-guided walk in the poet's footsteps from the city to St Cross, passing through the landscape which inspired the ode 'To Autumn'.
The round trip is approximately 2 miles. Pavements, paths and grass lie underfoot and stout shoes are advisable after wet weather.
