Discover Bath's history and charm with your perfect holiday letting
Bath is an easy city to fall in love with. Located in south-west England, it is noted for its fascinating history, Roman sites, and picturesque architecture that make it a joy to explore. The Roman Baths, Royal Crescent, and Royal Victoria Park are all major highlights of this medium-sized city.

How to get to your Bath holiday letting
Bath has good public transport links and is easily reached by train from other UK cities. While it doesn’t have its own airport, Bristol International Airport is just a short drive away from the city. Other visitors may find it convenient to fly into one of London’s airports, such as Heathrow or Gatwick, and make the easy two- to three-hour journey from there.
You might want to bring a car for this trip, as it’ll be a quicker journey to the city and will also allow you to visit some of the attractions outside of Bath. But public transport is a reliable option as well.
The weather in Bath
Bath is a lovely, green city, but there is a price to be paid for this lush environment: rain. Bath receives a slightly higher amount of rain than many other areas of England and it can rain on any day of the year. That being said, spring and summer can also see very pleasant weather.
Should the odd shower occur, at least you'll be able to take shelter in your cosy Bath holiday cottage! It’s best to pack waterproof clothing and an umbrella, just in case. Don’t let the prospect of getting wet dampen your enthusiasm for Bath. It’s a gorgeous place to be regardless of the weather.
Bath's top attractions
Bath boasts an array of historic sites, landmarks, and charming shops and cafés that attract more than a million visitors each year. This World Heritage Site city is filled with attractions at every turn, and simply walking the streets is an experience in itself. When you step out of your Bath holiday letting, you won't need to travel far before you've reached somewhere interesting.
Perhaps the most famous attraction in Bath is the Roman Baths, which date back to the 1st century AD. The buildings surrounding the natural springs were added around 200 years ago, and provide a stunning backdrop to the springs. This is one of the most beautiful buildings in England, and while you can no longer step into the soothing water yourself, you’ll be able to imagine what it would have been like in the days when you could.
After you’ve seen the baths, take a stroll down to Royal Crescent, a magnificent row of beautiful terraced houses that was completed in 1774. This excellently preserved building is one of the best examples of Georgian architecture in the country. Located nearby is Royal Victoria Park, a fantastic park that was first opened in 1830 in honour of Princess Victoria and today features sport facilities, a botanical garden, and open-air concerts.
Also not to be missed is Bath Abbey, a Gothic style cathedral founded in 1499. Take in the grandeur of its architecture before returning to your Bath holiday letting.
Art and culture in Bath
As a city that's steeped in history, it’s little surprise that Bath is home to many museums and galleries. Among the best is the American Museum in Britain, which chronicles American history through representations of art, maps, and other Americana.
Literary fans will love the Jane Austen Centre, which is dedicated to the author, who lived in Bath. This is a fun museum where fans can recreate their favourite scenes and see what life was like during Austen’s day.
Fashionistas should check out the Fashion Museum, which showcases designs and styles from the past 400 years. This is also a good stop for those with children, as there is a dress up room where they can try on clothing from different periods.
Bath’s quirkier museums include the Haynes International Motor Museum, located just outside Bath, which has more than 400 cars from throughout motoring history. The Museum of Bath at Work, which explores the different working methods in Bath over the past 2000 years, is another highlight, while postal collectibles and fun, interactive games can be found at the Bath Postal Museum.
With so much to discover in Bath, renting your own Bath holiday cottage is a great option, so that you and your travel companions can rest comfortably after exciting days in the city.
