Aside from soaking in the spas, there's loads more to do including shopping and indulging in fine cafes and restaurants as you're steeped in the city's beauty every step of the way. Canal trips, museums, and an abundance of pubs ensures you'll have a lively and enjoyable time!

You can't come to Bath and not bathe. This state-of-the-art thermal bath spa complex has the UK's only natural thermal waters. The open-air thermal bath is a paradise that soothes the body and soul.

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

Will recommend to any friend traveling to the UK

Our guide Andrew was quite knowledgeable and friendly, it was a pleasure to be guided by him all day. The secret surprise was a pleasant way to end the day. Highly recommend!

Leon was a great tour guide. Carlos was the driver and excellent too!

The tour was comfortable and not rushed. We had plenty of time to see the sights and enjoy without rushing around. Leon was informative and funny and the bus ride was also very smooth. I totally recommend this tour.

Stonehenge and Bath Full-Day Tour from London Reviewed by Andrea, 02/22/2019

Great tour that was relaxed and efficient

I was hesitant to book a tour because I was worried there would be too many people and too little time at each place. I specifically wanted to see Stonehenge and Lacock so this tour group came up in Google and the reviews were good. My guide was Paul and it was just me and another lady in their 16-seater bus. I like that it is a small group tour and Paul was really wonderful, nice and friendly. He explained everything well including the history of what we saw. And attentive. He frequently checked if we needed to make use restrooms or get food. I didn’t feel rushed anywhere. This is also low-season so overall not too many people each place. I prefer that they don’t include lunch because I was just snacking throughout the day trying food wherever we went. I would definitely use England Experience Tours for another tour. It saves money getting individual train tickets to each place amd is comfortable. Plus the van had wifi. Thank you Paul!

Stonehenge, Bath, Lacock & Avebury Full-Day Tour from London Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 02/09/2019

Wonderful excursion in London by England Experience Tours

1. Our tour guide Steve is very knowledgeable and humorous. He balanced with the right amount of time for guiding and time for guiding. He is very thoughtful for guests' need. 2. Stonehenge is amazing. Bath is stunning. Avebury and Lacock offer nice British small-town ambiance 3.Good pacing. We have enough time for every stop. Visiting Avebury and Lacock on the way to Bath made the drive to Bath so easy. We got to rest all the way from Bath to London. 4. A very nice, clean and comfortable minivan with wifi. With a minivan tour, we didn't have to spend lots of time waiting for other less punctual people. 5 Highly recommended!

Excellent tour for the money; professional and caring tour team

I joined the Stonehenge/Bath tour from London in January 2019. It was off season and instead of a 54-passenger normal bus, there were only 11 of us passengers, which made for a pleasant and comfortable ride and personalized tour. Kelly, our team manager, gave a detailed commentary not only on the history of the major sites but also minor sights that are often missed by tour leaders when in a large group. She was friendly and approachable. Her diction was clear, well-modulated and unhurried and I could hear every word she said. It wasn't the usual rat-tat-tat delivery out of a written or memorized script. I was the only passenger to be picked up at King's Cross/St. Pancras Station at 7:55 a.m. and she was at the designated bus stop on time to fetch me. I highly recommend Anderson Tours. They answered my email inquiries promptly within 24 hours. Kelly promised to correct the location instructions of the bus stop where I was picked up (the landmark was the wrong description).
