Autumn brings some of Bath's most popular festivals and events. Cinema goers will love the Bath Film Festival and its celebration of diverse voices, worldwide classics and emerging talent.
Culture and heritage
The entire city of Bath is a World Heritage Site. With its stunning buildings, popular attractions and a fantastic choice of places to eat and drink, it’s a great place for a day trip, weekend or even a longer stay. Make sure the historic Roman Baths are top of your itinerary.
Bath Spa is the city’s main centrally located train station. You can usually reach Bath from London in under 1 hour 30 minutes but trains also run regularly from a number of other locations in the South West too. Travelling by bike is one of the best ways to see the city as traffic can often get congested in during peak times in the city centre.
Food and drink
You’ll find a fantastic food scene in Bath, including gastro pubs, independent restaurants and serious fine dining. There’s an option to suit all budgets and tastes, and if you like a pint, don’t leave without trying a local cider or beer.
Sport and outdoors
Bath is home to one of the country’s top rugby teams, while football fans can head to catch Bath City in action. Or, for a day out with a difference, see what’s on at Bath Racecourse or Castle Combe Circuit.
Music and nightlife
Music lovers are spoilt for choice in Bath, thanks to a huge selection of venues playing host to all kinds of performers. For a truly memorable experience, catch a live band at locals’ favourite The Bell Inn, or enjoy some live jazz while you dine in former railway station Green Park Brasserie and Bar.
Bath has so much to offer when it comes to shopping. Wander through the city centre and you’ll find a great mix of big-name high street stores and independent boutiques. For great local produce and hand-crafted products head to Green Park Station, where you’ll find markets running throughout the week.
