Stay in Bath > News > News > Ten reasons to visit Bath this year

We don’t need to tell you how beautiful Bath is, the Georgian buildings, the surrounding countryside… It is a truly wonderful place to spend a short break and as it is less than two hours from London is conveniently located. If you need a bit more convincing, here are ten reasons to visit the city this year.

  1. The Circus

    The Circus is one of the most amazing pieces of architecture you’ll find in the city and honestly, it is well worth coming to Bath just to ogle at it.

  2. Amazing places to stay

    Bath is full of incredible hotels, guest houses and B&Bs, you’ll find lots of them here… The choice is so vast you’ll need to keep coming back again and again just to sample everything the city has to offer from city centre chains to quaint independent B&Bs.

  3. The Roman Baths

    It’s over 2,000 years old and still pretty much as it was when the Romans first came to the city. It is Britain’s only hot springs and though you can no longer bathe in it, you should join the thousands that journey to Bath every year to see it and soak up the history.

  4. The sightseeing tours

    Like every city, Bath has a host of sightseeing tours operating, from self-guided walks to ghost walks, comedy walks, adventure walks, cycling tours, bus tours and of course the famous hop on hop off buses. These tours are a great way to see the city and find more reasons to keep coming back!

  5. The Royal Crescent

    This is probably one of Bath’s most famous sights and draws tourists from all over. It’s one of the most unusual streets you’ll ever see and number one is a museum so you can find out more about the Georgian era.

  6. The Thermae Bath Spa

    You know how we said you can’t bathe in the hot spring water any more? Well, that’s true at the Roman Bath, but you’re more than welcome to do it at the Thermae Bath Spa. It uses the water from the three natural hot springs and their rooftop pool has some incredible views of the city.

  7. The Museums

    We already mentioned the one at the Royal Crescent, but Bath has some amazing museums, some of which you can get free or discounted entry using either a Discovery Card or the Bath Reward Card. Highlights include the Fashion Museum, The Jane Austen Centre and the Holburn Museum.

  8. Walcot Street

    If you like shopping obviously you’ll be drawn to the high street stores, but you’ll want to take a trip to Walcot Street, the city’s Independent Quarter where you’ll find quirky, independent shops full of unusual and unique items.

  9. The food

    Bath has a whole range of amazing restaurants and cafes, as well as bars and pubs offering some incredible food. You can find some of them here where they accept the Bath Rewards Card for discounts and offers, but you’re never too far away from one in the city.

  10. The Christmas Market

    Ok, we know we’ve got a while to wait before the next one, but Bath’s Christmas Market is one of the greatest markets in Europe. So, make a note to come along to the next one.
