Bath is a wonderful place to be in the summer. The streets come alive as the city hosts a
variety of festivals and the famous Roman Baths stay open until late, giving you the chance
to explore them by torchlight.
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.

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.
The local view:
“I’m Sarah Holden, editor of visitbath.co.uk. Bath has loads of great pubs and bars, with some gorgeous beer gardens that are often quite tucked away. I absolutely love Bath during the summer, and there’s probably nothing that captures the true atmosphere of the city as much as a picnic in Royal Victoria Park, in front of the Royal Crescent. There are also several scenic cycle routes that make a great day out by bike.”
