UrlaubCornwall’s guide to getting the most from your holiday in Bath
Bath is a hugely popular holiday destination where you can take in Britain’s iconic history and entertain the whole family.
Whether landing at Bristol Airport from Berlin, or taking a short break from visiting London, you are within easy reach of one of Southern England’s best holiday spots.
Bath is a town unlike any other in the UK, and is recognised as a World Heritage City because of this special individuality. The Roman Baths, which use the unique hot water springs beneath the town, are Bath’s most famous attraction, and are unmissable on any holiday in Bath.
For a very English treat, go into the Pump Room at the Roman Baths to enjoy a cup of tea using the clean, clear Bath spring water.
The town has stunning architecture from many eras, especially Georgian. The Pulteney Bridge across the River Avon is a major Bath landmark worth visiting. The shops on both sides of the road over the bridge are a very unusual sight!
Another highlight is the Royal Crescent, which is a curved terrace of Georgian townhouses. One of the houses has been renovated to show what life in Bath would have been like 200 years ago.
Bath has plenty of modern attractions as well. The shops, bars and restaurants set in amongst the traditional architecture are a pleasant blend of the old and the new. You could hire bikes for the whole family to explore the idyllic River Avon, or relax in the luxury of Thermae Bath Spa.
