Royal Crescent Bath

Bath offers so much to its visitors, from Roman history to contemporary art. Why not take in the best of it all in this compact and fascinating city centre? A gentle ride on a narrowboat down the Kennet and Avon Canal, an exhilarating ride in the hot air balloon viewing one of the world's most beautiful cities through the eyes of a bird, or an afternoon learning about one of the world's most famous literary artists - these are all wonderful ways to spend your time in the city of Bath.

Inside the Jane Austen Centre

The Jane Austen Centre offers the perfect way to spend an afternoon, complete with on-site tea rooms for light refreshments, and Bath offers bus tours so 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 enjoy the funny side of Bath at live comedy venue, Komedia. However you choose to spend your time, browse our Bath accommodation to ensure your stay is perfect.

Bath's shopping areas are frequently interesting, quirky and inspiring. Of course, the high street names are here, but so are unusual concepts, designer and one-of-a-kind specialist retailers, and it is interesting to note that Bath's independent shops are to be found in equal measure to the larger chain stores. That's a sign of how this small and intimate city makes the visitor feel special and catered for.

The Roman Baths in Bath!

When in Bath, do as the Romans did. The Roman Baths themselves are not to be missed, and are the main attraction in the city. They were built within a temple to the goddess Sulis between 60AD and 370AD. Free tours start every hour and are great way to view the beauty of a Roman building that has been left almost entirely unmodified. After staring into the natural waters, you might want to enjoy a meal at the Pump Room restaurant.

And if you're fascinated by this incredible Roman construction, you also can't fail to miss the superb Georgian buildings all around the city - imposing semi circular crescents, and imaginative bridge with inbuilt shops down both sides (the Pulteney Bridge). So why not take an architecture tour of the city so you don't miss any of its built history?

Bath is also home to a total of five theatres and to the breathtaking Bath Abbey, but it also offers spectacular entertainment, culture, an abundance of good food and independent shops selling items you won't find anywhere else. 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. There are new, exciting things to do around every corner. Bath is waiting to be explored, so grab your camera and find Bath accommodation for the ultimate sightseeing trip, filled with culture and relaxation.
