Visitors to Bath are spoiled for choice for things to do, from touring all the sights, taking in shows at the theatre or indulging in retail therapy. You’ll never be bored, but here are a few fun and unusual things that you can do while you’re staying in the city.
Sample some amazing produce
While there are hundreds of restaurants and cafes in Bath, many of them serving food from around the world, you will want to make sure you eat somewhere using food produced in the local area at least once. Many of the B&Bs and Guesthouses will only use locally produced ingredients in their breakfasts, but if you want to eat all local all day, head to some of the smaller, independent places dotted around and see how they make dinner in Somerset – you won’t be disappointed! Not only is there the surrounding producers supplying great food and ingredients, there are some foods that are unique only to Bath that you can pick up in the city too and there are distilleries and breweries in the local area creating your favourite drinks with a Bath twist.
See Bath by twilight
Bath is pretty spectacular in the day but wait until you see it at night. The Abbey lights up and the Roman Baths are also faintly illuminated. Plus the city comes alive at night with bars, restaurants and the city’s famous ghost and comedy walks giving you a whole new way to see the city.
Visit the Beach
Ok, this is only really applicable during the summer months, but yes, you actually can visit the beach without leaving the city! Bath on the Beach is free to enter and open every day during the summer giving you a real taste of the Caribbean while in Bath.
Explore an old train station
Green Park Station is a former train station that is now home to some of Bath’s best restaurants, markets, live music and more! The UK’s first Famers’ Market takes over the station every Saturday morning and if that wasn’t enough, it’s a pretty spectacular building in its own right
