Despite recent news reports on the flooding in Somerset, StayinBath.org would like to reassure you that The World Heritage City of Bath is unaffected by the weather and ready to welcome visitors.
Getting to Bath
The M4 has recently fully reopened after a multimillion pound improvement scheme and all motorways and major ‘A’ roads in the area are unaffected by flooding. To help you plan your journey take a look at the AA Traffic News.

Attractions & Things to Do
You can stay dry inside as Bath is host to some world class Museums and Galleries. Explore the ancient Roman Baths and walk where the Roman did almost 2000 year ago. The Roman Baths has recently been recognised by VisitEngland as being one of the top large attractions in the country. Discover the real working of a Georgian household at No1 Royal Crescent. No1 is a real upstairs downstairs affair, you can explore the Lady’s Bedroom, Formal Dining Room as well as the servant’s hall and the scullery.
You can relax in the Thermae Bath Spa, bathe in the naturally warm, mineral-rich waters, as the Celts & Romans did over 2000 years ago. When you stay with one of our accommodation members you can enjoy 3 hour for the price of 2 (Monday to Friday).
