What to do in Bath.

Bath has a wealth of architecture and history, culture, festivals and theatre, as well as fantastic shops and restaurants – meaning there is something for everyone. The Roman Baths are one of the main attractions of the city, along with an array of museums and heritage sites to explore. Take a stroll through the Abbey, No 1 Royal Crescent, which tells the story of Georgian life, the Fashion Museum, the Pump Rooms and the Jane Austen Centre, which offers an insight into the life of one of the UK’s best-loved literary artists.

Bath has five theatres and offers entertainment and cultural events throughout the year. The city’s festivals include The Bath Feast, the Bath Festival in May and the Jane Austen Festival in September. The world-renowned Bath Christmas Market runs throughout December and is an event not to be missed, while regular craft and independent artisan markets fill the charming side streets in the centre.

Stunning architecture, culture, festivals and shopping – Bath has something for everyone.

It is, of course, Bath’s historic buildings and stunning architecture that attract visitors from around the world. Just taking a stroll from the hotel into the city centre will take you past iconic landmarks such as Royal Crescent and the Circus – and if you fancy sitting in the sun, head for Royal Victoria Park or Parade Gardens.

There are many tours on offer to guide you around Bath – on foot and by bus – and boat trips down the Kennet & Avon canal. Our experienced hotel reception team will be able to give you details on how to book.

And, finally, Bath has some of the best shopping in the South West. Head for the Southgate centre for high-end stores and take time to explore the many side streets or head up Walcot Street to discover independent shops and boutiques.
