About Bath

Including tips for the best time to visit Bath

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bath is brimming with history and rooted in ancient Roman culture. True to the city’s name, the Roman Baths are the highlight here, featuring some of the best preserved Roman ruins in the world, hot springs with emerald green water and a museum housing numerous artefacts. Since these historical baths are not open to the public for a swim, you can head to the nearby Thermae Bath Spa for a rejuvenating soak in thermal waters and stunning views from its rooftop pool.

Bath is one of the most-visited destinations in England, drawing fans of architecture and literature from all over. You can step into the romantic world of a famous English novelist at the Jane Austen Centre, and even indulge your British fancies by dressing up in Regency finery or having ‘Tea with Mr. Darcy’ at the museum’s themed tea room.

Boasting some of the finest examples of Georgian architecture, the City of Bath is soaked in hues of honey yellow, with most of its impressive structures crafted from golden Bath stone. You can join a free walking tour covering the city’s top sights, including the terraced townhouses that create the sweeping Royal Crescent and the three sets of houses that form the perfect circle of The Circus. Aside from Georgian marvels, Bath Abbey showcases intricate Gothic stonework and stained-glass windows, while the Palladian-style Pulteney Bridge is one of a handful of bridges in the world with shops on both sides.

Bath has something for everybody.

August 15, 2022

Bath has something for everybody. Great restaurants offering cuisine from all over the world. Beautiful buldings to look at and explore. Vibrant nightlife if thats your thing. When visiting Bath be prepared for lots of hills and walking! We ate in Bills, excellent breakfast and Wagamamas which never fails to deliver. I would highly recommend a visit to Bath.

We booked a day trip to Stonehenge, Avebury and the Cottswolds, well worth the amount paid to have someone else drive (wrong side of the road for us in the US) and tell you how best to see the attractions and a bit of history. Get some Gin if you like to drink, all of the Gin drinks were very good, they know how to do it in England. The Roman Baths are amazing and although it is a bit expensive for the tour, it is amazing to see what was accomplished centuries ago.

I loved Bath and can't wait to visit again.

August 13, 2022

I loved Bath and can't wait to visit again. Wonderful to see so many individual shops and independent businesses. People were very friendly, and I enjoyed the fact that we could walk everywhere. We had lunch at the Architect and I would highly recommend it. The highlight of the trip was the visit to the Roman baths and dinner in the pump room. Watch our for their package, it's a great deal.

We only stayed one night as we were on our way to a wedding but we will return for longer. Bath is beautiful and almost takes you back in time to another era. It is well looked after with plenty of eateries and places to visit and the Roman Baths were well worth visiting. Will definitely return.

August 8, 2022

Bath is a quiet and pretty laid back city. Loved the landscape and topography, breathtaking I must say. We soon realized we shouldn’t have rented a car for for the weekend, the city centre and attractions therein are better walked to and through. The university grounds blew my mind. I’m glad I visited Bath.
