Great audio tours of both the Roman Baths and the Fashion Museum. You need a good few hours at the Baths to listen to everything! Costumed guides at the Baths - a really nice touch. If you are interested in the Assembly Rooms and fashion - the Fashion Museum is a must. Sumptuous building and wonderful collection, again you could spend several hours there...

Which spa or what treatment is worth pampering yourself with in Bath?

Take a towel so you don't have to pay extra £9 to hire towel/ robe and go to the spa for 2hr session. The treatments were not really for me and the restaurant is very mediocre but the 2 spa pools and steam rooms are wonderful. Fantastic view over Bath from rooftop pool.

Bath has a great collection of high quality restaurants, personally tried and recommend Martini's and the Circle Restaurants. The new shopping complex is in keeping with the old style of Bath and has a great range of shops. The Spa Bath is a must and worth the cost (try to get a twilight if the weather is nice). Each time we go we find another little gem tucked away somewhere. The Local Authority do a great job in keeping the area clean and the Christmas Market is well worth a visit.

Is there more to shopping in Bath than just brand-name stores?

There is a good selection of small shops and brand-name stores, including a good independent bookshop. Do some investigating around the side streets.

Go to Roman Baths and other attractions early or late in the day to avoid the coach trippers. Autumn is quieter than the Summer but the weather was still good. Plenty of parks to escape the crowds. Walk, don't take the car you will see more and avoid the traffic.There are lots of pedestrianised areas and parking is difficult. Plenty of city tour buses if mobility is a problem.

Where should people go if they don't want to eat in a tourist trap?

Scoffs cafe (take away or eat in) delicious local food - pies and pastries, teas, soup, main meals. Reasonable prices!
Edge of Town (?) cafe - felafals, pasta dishes, home cooked pizzas, not far from the Herschel Museum - delicious food and very good value.
Eastern Eye - Indian Restaurant, Quiet Street. Amazing restaurant in a typical 18th century building - with huge indian murals and art. Great service. Vegetarian thali - big portions for £15.50. Fantastic!

Guide books are very comprehensive but it's often best to discover a place and then read the guide book. Excellent staff/ volunteers in the Holburne Museum and Bath Abbey ensured a very enjoyable and informative visit.
