Attractions In Bath

A UNESCO World Heritage site, Bath was founded as a thermal spa in the first century, during the Roman period. The remains of the Temple of Sulis Minerva and the baths complex built around natural hot springs are among the city’s most popular attractions. During the reigns of George I, II and III in the 18th century, Bath came of age as a popular spa city and an influential center for art and literature. Beautiful and grand neoclassical buildings, including the Assembly Rooms and the Pump Room, were constructed during this period and are found throughout the city center. The Royal Crescent, Camden Crescent and Cavendish Crescent are home to fine examples of Georgian residences. Another highlight is Bath Abbey, an impressive Gothic church built on the ruins of a Norman cathedral in 1499.

Make some time for enjoying the outdoors and driving to one of the city’s beautiful parks. You can enjoy a picnic or simply relax at the Parade Gardens, which overlook the River Avon. A bandstand hosts musical performances during the summer, while floral displays provide a stunning setting in which to unwind. Victoria Park is the city’s largest park and is close to the Botanical Gardens, while Sydney Gardens were once visited by Jane Austen. Visitors can also bathe in natural hot springs at the Thermae Bath Spa.

Places To Visit Outside Bath

While the city has plenty to offer in terms of entertainment and sightseeing, Bath is a great base from which you can explore nearby destinations. The Cotswolds, Exmoor National Park, Devon, Dorset and the Forest of Dean are just some of the day trips you can take from Bath. Eight miles southeast of Bath is Bradford on Avon, a picturesque town built from the same limestone used in Bath. The town is home to one of the few remaining Saxon churches, while the medieval Saxon Tithe Barn at Barton Farm Country Park has one of the UK’s largest stone roofs.

Bristol is just west of Bath and has a diverse range of attractions, including a vibrant nightlife and great shopping destinations. The city has a rich industrial and maritime heritage. Its attractions include the Bristol Zoo Gardens, At-Bristol Science Center, and the SS Great Britain – a steam-powered passenger liner built by famed engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1843. Brunel also designed one of Bristol’s most famous landmarks, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, across the Avon Gorge. Popular shopping destinations include Cabot Circus in the heart of the city center.

Long stay car parks are found on Charlotte Street, South Gate, Avon Street, Manvers Street and Bath Cricket Club.

Driving around the city requires special attention to road restrictions. These includes restrictions at some car parks, including at Bath Spa Train Station. This car park is only available to rail users. There are also several one-way streets and pedestrian-only roads throughout Bath, especially in the city center. One-way roads make it difficult to drive within the city center, and visitors to the city often congest the old, narrow streets, especially on weekends and during the summer months. Bus lanes also restrict access on certain streets.
