A bus into Bath City Centre passes the site every 15 minutes, so if you want to explore there’s no need to take the car. Bath is a great place to combine sightseeing and shopping.
The Royal Crescent, the Circus and Pulteney Bridge are fine examples of Georgian architecture and the Jane Austin Centre and the Roman Baths give you a glimpse of Bath’s fascinating history.
The town’s 6 shopping areas are a wealth of independent boutiques and shops, as well as the usual big named stores. Visit the Glass House and you can buy glassware made in Bath. There are glass blowing demonstrations at the Theatre of Glass in Walcot Street and you can try your hand at blowing a glass bubble!
