What to see in Bath

The ruins of the ancient Roman baths are a highlight of visits to the city. The site now includes interactive exhibits and CGI to bring the world of the ancient Romans to life in an exciting way. Make sure that you get here early in the day, though, as it can get very busy in the summer months. Whilst you can't bathe in the water at the Roman Baths, you can relax in the same natural spring waters at the new Thermae Bath Spa. Head to the rooftop pool to enjoy views of the city while you soak.

Beyond the baths, there is much to discover: take a stroll on the six-mile Bath skyline walk to enjoy wonderful views of the city and surrounding countryside. Enjoy lunch at the Pump Restaurant where you can drink a glass of the local mineral water with your meal. Go on a walking tour of the historic architecture of Bath including the famous Royal Crescent, a group of identical Georgian townhouses that are fronted by expansive lawns. The Jane Austen Centre, meanwhile, is dedicated to the famous author and her work that was inspired by her time living in Bath. Booking your hotel close to the city centre means you can easily reach all these attractions and much more.
