Roman Bath, Bath

Venture out from your Bath hotel to sweep along elegant Georgian crescents and stop at 15th-century Sally Lunn’s, the oldest building in the city, for proper Earl Grey tea and a bun.

Historic Bath

Imagine yourself as an extra in a Jane Austen adaptation and that’s Bath. From the crescented Circus to the city’s largest open space Victoria Park, Bath’s architectural beauty would make even Mrs Bennet smile. The Assembly Rooms, the former hub of Bath’s social scene, now house a vast costume museum.

Art and museums in Bath

Take tea at the Pump Room after an audio tour of that temple to cleansing, the Roman Baths. Spring water surges at 46.5C and the pillars, terraces and imposing statues transport you. Holburne Museum has fine art and furniture from Bath’s Regency heyday and behind it is Sydney Gardens, Ms Austen’s leafy stamping ground.

Quirky things to do in Bath

Take the kids from your Bath hotel to the Egg, the Theatre Royal’s child-dedicated theatre which has shows every Saturday plus lots of workshops. Or simply do as the Roman do and submerge yourself at the Thermae Bath Spa.

Events in Bath

Late February and early March sees Bath’s bookish crowd out in force at the city’s annual literary festival. The Bath Music Festival hosts dozens of acts from around the globe at a series of city venues in late May and early June.
