The Roman Baths
How could we mention our top attractions, without including Bath’s namesake itself? With so much history to soak up, alongside interactive CGI exhibitions, this ancient site is an absolute must for any visitor.
Discover Austen’s Bath
Jane Austen’s novels Northanger Abbey and Persuasion are both said to be inspired by the time she spent living in Bath.
The Jane Austen Centre provides visitors with an opportunity to reenact the Regency times. It’s an incredible exploration of fashion, food and society in a traditional Georgian house.
Prior Park Landscape Garden
Known for its iconic Palladium bridge, the Prior Park is a breath of fresh air away from the bustling city centre. The landscaped garden is an important feature of British history and makes a beautiful place for a stroll.
Admire the Architecture of The Royal Crescent
Bath is rich in beautiful architecture, but the Royal Crescent is one of the most stunning examples.
Built by John Wood the Younger in the 18th century, this impressive row of buildings is now split into stylish apartments. However, one of the buildings has been furnished in plush Georgian style for visitors to admire.
Visit the Electric Bear Taproom
Of course, no trip to Bath would be complete without popping in for a fresh pint at our taproom. Drinking directly from the source, you can experience the best our beers have to offer while taking a well-deserved rest from sightseeing.
