When in Bath

Taking a short vacation break in Bath? Here’s a list of the things you should do:

The Romans built public baths in the City, and you can still see it in the Great Bath. The ruins are still impressive and provide historians with an idea how the Roman Empire flourished in the UK. There are also pre-Roman sites near the area, but you need to plan for a day trip to see these enigmatic sites, especially Stonehenge.

The city has many other highlights, which you can take in when you go for a walking tour of the city. Visit the Holbourne Museum or the Victoria Art Gallery, or spend your day at Prior Park or the Circus. You could also take in the Georgian architecture of the Royal Crescent and marvel at the majestic structure.

Of course, a stay in Bath won’t be complete if you don’t enjoy its invigorating hot springs. The waters of Bath have been known for their rejuvenating and healing properties, so take a dip in many of the city’s spas and enjoy a dip in the waters.

Where to Stay?

Of course, when you’re having your short break in Bath, you can choose to stay in the many available accommodations in Bath: hotels, motels, or bed and breakfast. Choose one that will suit your needs and provides you with the amenities no matter how long you intend to stay.
