There is a clue in the name of the city, as to what you should definitely not miss... the Roman Baths is worth every penny of its entrance fee, with so much more than the Baths themselves to see, once you are inside. Its great audio tour makes it fascinating for almost all ages; although I'd advise you to skip the water tasting - not pleasant at all!
A free tour and the best way to see the city. Unlike the guided bus tours of the city, this tour really gets you up close to the action, leading you around all the main sites, along with strolling you down the fabulous little back streets, cram-packed with history and interest! What's more, it's run by voluntary guides, who just want to show the city off!
Bath's Thermae Spa offers a wide range of spa, health and beauty treatments. The waters brought the Romans to Bath and you can see why. At last, there is a place in Bath that utilises these wonderful natural thermal waters. Fancy a relaxing slice of luxury? The Spa's the place! And we would highly recommend the Twilight Package.
Great fun and an unforgettable way to tour the city. A brilliant mixture of magic tricks, jokes and audience participation. Sometimes you can get 'historied' out in Bath and this is the perfect antidote. It certainly is "more mystery than history!" Runs from Easter to the end of October. Departs from The Huntsman pub at 8pm.
The Abbey (don't call it a cathedral, locals will laugh at you!) is right in the heart of the city and impossible to miss. I truly can't imagine anyone visiting Bath not feeling drawn towards it. This should be on everyone's list of things to see. And the paid Tower Tour is amazing - great views and genuinely fascinating. Give it a go!
There are also various daytrips you can easily take from Bath to places such as Stonehenge, the Cotswolds, Salisbury, Oxford, Cheltenham and the coast. Even London is only an hour and a half away by train!
