Top 7 Things to Do and See in Bath

Top 7 Things to Do and See in Bath

Hen Party   /   May 30th, 2019   /   0 COMMENTS   /  A+ | a-

Bath is the largest city in Somerset and a historic city, best known for the Roman baths that gave it its name.  The city is on the River Avon and is popular for its tourists sites, cultural attractions and sporting venues.  Let’s check out the top things to do and see in Bath.

 

The Roman baths

 

The Roman baths is a complex of four features that are one of the top attractions in the city.  There is the Roman Bath House, the temple, the Sacred Spring and the museum dedicated to the history of the site and the city.  The baths are fed by the Mendip Hills and were originally a centre of worship for the Celts before the Romans came along.  They named it Aquae Sulis and it continued to be a popular site to visit until the 6th century.

 

Thermae Bath Spa

 

While you can’t bathe at the Roman baths, you can still experience the modern version of the experience around the city.  One example is the Thermae Bath Spa, a natural spa where you can bathe in the same warm and mineral-rich waters that made the Romans love the city.  There is even an open-air rooftop pool with great views across the city.

 

No.1 Royal Crescent

 

With its famous Palladian façade, Royal Crescent is a glimpse into the city’s past and No.1 has been made into a museum that lets you walk around the house as it was in Georgian times.  The houses represent some of the finest architecture of the era and was a home for aristocratic visitors who came to Bath.

 

Victoria Art Gallery

 

The Victoria Art Gallery is a collection of modern art and sculpture in a historic building.  It is a free to visit museum that has a regular program of exhibitions and events with two permanent collections and two temporary, always changing exhibition spaces.

 

The Jane Austen Centre

 

Jane Austen is one of the most famous past residents of Bath and the city has a museum dedicated to her and her novels.  The centre also looks at the city in her time and is a classically decorated Georgian townhouse where a guide will take you through what life was like in Jane Austen’s times.

 

Bath Abbey Tower

 

If you love a spot of photography and aren’t afraid of heights, then the Bath Abby Tower tour is perfect.  See the whole city after climbing the spiral staircase from the bell ringing chamber.  Learn about the history of the tower and the abbey and even see the hidden room where the Abbey clock is housed.

 

Do some shopping

 

After relaxing in the spa, the perfect way to finish a visit is to do some shopping – this is also popular with hen parties before they sample the city’s nightlife.  There is SouthGate, the newest shopping centre in the city with many well-known national chains while the streets around the Abbey have a range of small, independent shops.  The Guildhall Market is also worth visiting while Milson Place has boutiques, quirky shops and the oldest department store in the UK, Jolly’s.

Really happy with the service. Easy to book. Great contact from the company and the Butler himself. Flexible with times and quick to respond to any questions. Lewis was very professional, he made the evening a real success and the ‘bride to be’ couldn’t be happier. I would definitely use again and recommend to others. Thank you
