Visitor's Guide to Bath

Visitor's Guide to Bath Bath is one of the grandest locations to visit in the UK and has been for some 2,000 years but that’s not to say that this city lives in the past, it very much has its finger on the pulse.

Once you’ve visited the exquisite baths that have been wonderfully preserved and made your way around the stunning Bath Abbey [map] which is the last great medieval church dating back to 1499, why not investigate some of Bath’s more unusual museums? The Jane Austen Centre [map] is dedicated to one of Bath's most eminent residents and is a fascinating glimpse into the life of this unique lady.

The museum of East Asian Art [map] contains more than 500 objects from Cambodia, Korea, Thailand, China and Japan, and shows the strong cultural connections that exist throughout the area.

If it’s culture you’re looking for you’ll find plenty of great galleries and theatres including the beautiful Theatre Royal [map] that dates back to 1805.

Continue through to your evening entertainment by visiting one of Bath’s ancient pubs or modern clubs and don’t forget to head to one of its best live music venues or enjoy a giggle at a comedy club.

For those who want to get fit there’s plenty of sporting venues and activities across the city. Rugby is a major sport here but there’s also plenty of opportunity for messing around on the picturesque River Avon when the weather is fine.

Finding accommodation is easy and there’s plenty to suit every budget from the luxurious rooms available at The Bath Spa Hotel [map] to The Bath Backpackers Association [map].

If you want to get away from the city enjoy a break in the surrounding Somserset countryside and call in at Wells, Axbridge and Glastonbury.
