Planning Your Bath Visit

Bath is quite a small city.  Are there other interesting cities nearby?

Bristol is 13 miles north and offers a lot of city sightseeing for visitors. It's known for its five B's - Brunel (ship), boats, bridges, bikes, and beautiful countryside. There are city tours on offer for guided sightseeing.

Somerset is famous for producing cider. How can I explore this further?

When you're on holiday you're allowed to let go and enjoy a few ciders. Somerset is home to vast amounts of acres of apple orchards waiting to be transformed into delicious creations for consumption. Why not explore the orchards of Somerset? You can download a cider map online or find them in tourist information centers.

Bath is in the west of England -- does this mean it rains a lot there?

Like any UK city, the weather can be unpredictable. May to September can be sunny. Temperatures can reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, while winters can be as low as 30 degrees Fahrenheit

What people are saying about Bath

We really enjoyed our day in Stonehenge and Bath!

Rosie was an excellent guide, funny, informative and interesting. The tour went off without a hitch from the meeting place to the tickets for Stonehenge and our time in Bath. It was my fiance's 50th birthday and we both really enjoyed our day. Rosie did a great job with everything, including handling a traffic accident that delayed us by 45 minutes getting into Bath.

Peter was a spectacular guide! He was very knowledgeable and funny!

This was a great way to get a taste of all three sites. We had about 2 hours at each stop. Peter, our guide, gave us tips as we reached each spot to help us see the most important sites at each stop. Peter also regaled is with important, and some fun, information and London and each stop. It was a lovely day and I would book again!

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Roman Baths Day Trip Reviewed by Lauren M, 07/21/2019

Great day, great driver to four interesting places.

We really liked Stonehenge and Avebury. Would have liked it even more with a guide on board. The audios were not available at Stonehenge so more info from a guide would have made it an even better experience . The van was great and preferable to a bus.

Our guide knew a lot of historical information about the town of bath!

After looking around at some of the very large walking tours, we really appreciated the small group and personal attention. The tour was fantastic!
