Must-see attractions ready to welcome you
Who else is relieved to see restrictions easing? If you’re looking to explore attractions closer to home this summer, the UNESCO World-Heritage City of Bath is waiting and ready to welcome you. For those looking to stay over in the South West, we’ve put together a selection of our favourite sites across Bath for you to explore when you’re ready.
An Alternative View
The rather attractive site of Bath Abbey has been Christian worship for over a thousand years and survived many major conflicts, today it continues to stand as a beacon of hope to many, providing solace and comfort for many who pass through its doors. However, you might also want to give the rooftop walk a try to gain a different angle on the enchanting city around you. For those brave enough, you may even choose to take to the skies with Bailey Balloons for a truly unique view.
There are wealth of diverse museums to be found across the city; including the American Museum and Gardens, Beckford’s Tower, Herschel Museum of Astronomy, the Holburne Museum with its adjoining garden café and No.1 Royal Crescent. I don’t know about you but suddenly there seems too much to choose from!
National Trust Properties
If you still want to escape to the country within close proximity of the city, then there is plenty of green space to roam at Dyrham Park with its expansive deer park, or wander round Prior Park’s landscaped garden in the sweeping valley above Bath. Tickets must be pre-purchased before entry.
Walk in the footsteps of ancient descendants with an immersive experience through history at the Roman Baths. Pre-booking is essential if you wish to catch glimpse of one of the world’s best-preserved Roman remains steaming from beneath the Bath’s historic streets.
Thermae Bath Spa
After the stress endured across multiple lockdowns, there is no argument from us that we all deserve a little relaxation. Thermae Bath Spa is the UK’s last remaining naturally heated public spa and is now open again to visitors, with a range of sumptuous spa packages to choose from.
Bath Self Catering look forward to welcoming you back for a relaxing stay in the city that many of us our proud to call home.
