Bath is a great place to visit for the family. Considered a world heritage site for its treasure trove of archaeological finds, the city has many things to offer to visitors of all ages.
Wondering where to go this summer? If you are looking for something more than a routine beach holiday abroad, why not stay closer to home and discover what the historic city of Bath has in store for you.
Here is a short list to get you started:
This traditional French style restaurant at The Royal Hotel, one of the grandest Bath City centre hotels, is named after Isambard Brunel, the famous architect who designed the building. To eat out in a grade two-listed building and choose from a la carte menu or a bargain set menu deal of £12.95 for three courses, the Brasserie is an eatery you should not miss.
The Roman Baths
The Roman Baths are stunningly preserved with original Roman pillars and architecture. The spa water still flows from natural thermal springs at the site.
In the evening of the summer months, the site is lit by torchlight, a perfect outing for couples looking for a romantic night out. Couples can walk in the shimmering light, taking in sights that are over 2000 years old.
There is something for the children to do as well. They can enjoy fun history activities, such as making mosaics and medusa headbands.
If walks are the order of the day, Sydney Gardens is the oldest park in Bath, set out by Harcourt Masters in 1795. It was the favourite place of author Jane Austen, who lived nearby. The park features 12 acres of beautiful gardens, tennis courts and a children’s playground.
For sightseeing from the water, why not take a trip on the Lady Lena vessel. The boat was built in the Victorian era and is the oldest electric boat. She now hosts cream teas and champagne cruises.
