With a special attraction to exceptionally hygienic travellers—just kidding—Bath, United Kingdom, was built around an ancient Roman temple and spa. Located in the valley of the River Avon, Bath is now a mix of haunting ruins, opulent Georgian facades and lovely gardens. Author Jane Austen thought Bath was a rather silly place, but that’s because of all the boutiques and social clubs that still line the city’s streets. What’s not to love about that, Jane?
As you start making travel plans, you’ll be happy to hear Bath hotels are all over the city, especially concentrated downtown and along the River Avon. Prepping for a road trip or planning to fly into London Heathrow International airport (LHR)? Book London accommodation near Heathrow Airport for added convenience.
Don’t get any ideas about packing your togs for a dip in the Roman Baths downtown, because these 1st-century pools are strictly for looks these days. Save the soaking for your Bath hotel instead. Fast-forward to the 15th century at the mediaeval Bath Abbey, which still hosts church services today. If you prefer gallery-hopping and 18th-century architecture, walk through the Royal Crescent, a huge shopping, dining and historical complex stuffed with artefacts from the National Portrait Gallery, Tate Museum and the National Trust, among other contributors. After you’ve browsed, shopped and snacked your way through history, get some fresh air in the Botanical Gardens at Victoria Park and catch a show at the Theatre Royal Bath.
Touch down at Bristol Airport (BRS), about 32 km west of Bath, and catch a bus with direct service to your destination—or snap up one of Wotif’s car hire deals and take the scenic drive through Somerset County.

In such a cold weather country what better way to make use of the thermal water than to create a bathhouse. To this day people have been enjoying the luxurious warmth of the baths but now the original location is a fascinating renovated museum. Tour the museum and imagine how the upper class Romans once lived and then enjoy the same waters for yourself at the Thermae Bath Spa. Take in a spectacular view of the city from the rooftop thermal pool and leave feeling totally and utterly relaxed.
From our Bath hotels you don't have to walk far to find some of the famed architecture of the city. Almost every street contains something worth photographing but one of the best places to visit is the circular row of connected Georgian houses known as Circus. Located in the heart of town, Circus is the sort of place you would dream of living in. Nearby is the equally stunning Royal Crescent which is a similar semicircle of attached houses with a vast lawn out the front. Trying to fit the whole image on your camera might be tricky though. Pulteney Bridge is another incredible piece of Bath architecture which must be enjoyed.
Outside of Bath are the geographically and historically important Cheddar Caves and Gorge. Ideal for a day trip from your Bath hotel, the caves provide an interesting insight into prehistoric Britain while the gorge offers inspiring views across the countryside.
