Bath is a great place for a weekend trip out of London– it has enough that you might not see everything you’d like, but not so much that it feels overwhelming. It’s also a great place to do a bit of relaxing!
Getting Here/ Getting Around:
Catching a train from London is definitely the easiest option. Once you arrive walking is definitely the best way to see the city. There can be a fair bit of walking if you want to explore some of the outer-areas, but you’ll get to see some gorgeous views and architecture.
Where to Stay:
We stayed at Brooks Guest House, which was about an eight minute walk from the centre of the city, and a fifteen minute walk from the train station. There’s also The Griffin Inn, and The Halcyon, both of which feel unique and comfortable.
Things to Do:
Have a walk around the Royal Crescent, then take a tour of the Roman Baths, and wander through Bath Abbey next-door. The Holborn Museum is just a short walk from the centre of the city, and is definitely worth stopping by. If you’re looking to do a bit less activity and more relaxing, the Thermae Bath Spa has day passes and is a great place to recharge before heading back home.
Places to Eat:
If you can, try to visit during the city’s food week in October, which highlights local producers, breweries, and chefs. Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen is great for vegetarians and omnivores, The Circus Café has delicious, seasonal food in a cosy atmosphere. For breakfast/coffee the Wild Cafe is a fun and friendly spot. For something a bit different, try Yak Yeti Yak, a Nepalese restaurant with great food, and a very cool vibe.
