Bath Attractions

Bath prides itself on its many iconic attractions, such as the Royal Crescent, The Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the Abbey. The city’s many museums and art galleries provide a rich and fascinating insight into fashion through the ages, 19th-century astronomer William Herschel, Bath’s industrial heritage and the life of Bath’s most famous literary resident at the Jane Austen Centre.

It is a lovely and varied city that offers something for everyone.
Why not treat yourself to a Spa session in the natural thermal waters at Thermae Bath Spa or learn about the history underlying the city’s Spa culture by visiting the 2,000-year-old Roman Baths?

Bath and its environs also offer much in the way of enjoyment for families and children – the Egg Theatre, for example, or, if you are feeling a little more adventurous, Longleat and Stonehenge.

Eating Out

Traditionally a city of genteel Georgian tearooms, Bath and the surrounding areas have a lively dining scene with many different eating establishments that can cater for all tastes and budgets.

You can enjoy everything from a Michelin starred fine dining experience to a proper pub serving traditional hearty fare or Vegetarian eats, craft beer and plenty of other creative establishments.

In short, Bath is a foodie heaven, with plenty of independent restaurants and delis, a local farmer’s market and a strong emphasis on locally sourced produce.

Bath Shopping
