When in Bath, do as the Romans did.

The Roman Baths themselves are not to be missed, and are the main attraction of the city. They’re built within a temple to the goddess Sulis, and there are free tours which happen every hour.

Bath is home to a total of five theatres, and to the breathtaking Bath Abbey, but it also offers spectacular entertainment, culture and an abundance of good food. The city’s festivals include the Bath Film Festival held in November, the Literature Festival in March and the summer International Music Festival celebrating everything from the music of Mozart to comedy folk tunes. 

Bath offers bus tours so that you can capture the best of the city in just a few hours. Take a walking tour if you prefer to explore at a slower pace, or watch glassblowing at the Bath Aqua Theatre of Glass before you pick up your very own glass souvenir.

The city of Bath is a place in which you can relax, unwind and savour the sights.

Take a gentle ride on a narrow boat down the Kennet and Avon Canal or enjoy an exhilarating flight aboard a hot air balloon viewing one of the world’s most beautiful cities from the sky or spend an afternoon learning about one of the UK’s most famous literary artists. The Jane Austen Centre offers an insight into Austen’s life, and includes on-site tea rooms. 

Yet, despite everything else on offer, it’s still Bath’s historic buildings that attract tourists from all over the globe. They range from opulent Georgian residences to Grade II listed buildings like the Lansdown Grove Hotel, with everything easy to reach by bus, by bike or on foot.
