Aerial view of historic buildings in Bath, Somerset, England.

Places to visit in Bath

Bath wears its colourful history on its sleeve, so prepare to be dazzled. You’ll feel you could be in a horse-drawn carriage trotting past curves of honey-coloured townhouses like Georgian gentry, or reclining with lazy Romans in a colonnaded public bath. There's plenty bubbling below the surface of this elegant Somerset city, and not just the ancient thermal springs. There are Victorian parks to roam, medieval abbeys to scale, and dreamy punts along the River Avon. You'll feel like a fully-fledged 'Bathonian' once you have raided Upper Town's boutiques or cheered on the local rugby team. You'll see why Queen Victoria and Jane Austen dropped by.
