A warm welcome awaits you in Bath
An elegant city full of heritage, contemporary culture, green spaces and a few surprises.
Built for pleasure and relaxation, Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times and is the only UK city designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Visit the Roman Baths dating back to AD43. You might feel you are wondering through the pages of one of Jane Austen’s classic novels as you stroll past architectural masterpieces like the Royal Crescent and the Circus. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in.
Bath’s compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain. Bath is proud of its remarkable collection of museums and galleries
Things to do & see in Bath
The city is famously full of attractions and activities, it is home to an array of fascinating museums, including No. 1 Royal Crescent, where you can experience life as a Georgian in Bath, or the unique Museum of East Asian Art, the UK’s only museum solely dedicated to the arts and cultures of East and South East Asia. Bath is also the ideal base for exploring nearby sites like the photogenic villages of Lacock and Castle Combe, and Stonehenge’s mysterious megaliths.
Bath is a lively, thriving city where ancient history and Georgian elegance sit comfortably alongside a decidedly twenty-first-century cosmopolitan buzz. Eat out in hundreds of restaurants and cafés serving everything from Michelin-starred gourmet dishes to simple, satisfying street food.
Unwind in chic cocktail bars and welcoming traditional pubs, then dip into a rich evening scene that embraces comedy, live music and theatre. Head to Green Park Brasserie for free live jazz music and award-winning food and drink, catch a show at Theatre Royal Bath or enjoy after-hours entertainment at Komedia Bath.
No trip to Bath is complete without taking the waters. Relax and unwind in natural hot springs that have been a magnet to visitors for millennia. Visit Thermae Bath Spa for revitalising treatments, healing steam rooms and awesome 360-degree Bath views from the rooftop pool. Or treat yourself to a spa stay at the five-star Gainsborough Bath Spa, a luxurious hotel with its own naturally heated spa complex.
