BATH

Why Bath?

With a plethora of things to do and see, Bath certainly has it all and is a renowned day trip or short break for students. A perfect city to soak up stunning Georgian architecture and history, brunch along tucked away cafes on cobbled streets and a vibrant place to drink into the evening in, Bath is bursting with activity. Known also as a Well-Being destination, Bath can be a relaxing city to amble at your own leisure through, before finding a series of fun nightclubs to dance away in. 

Highlights

"Not only is Bath an aesthetic, historical town with tonnes to do, it’s also home to 2 universities to make Bath a student-hub with deals and activities to match. Perfect for a weekend get-away or a long term stay, Bath has a lot to do in and around the city that provides the perfect backdrop for a well earned break."

Royal Crescent

This large greenspace in front of these Grade 1 Listed buildings is a great place just to hang out with your friends or bring a book and get some headspace. In the summer, head to the mini golf for an 18-hole about or during winter, head to the ice rink for some mulled wine and waffles

Sham Castle

Sham Castle, that overlooks the city as a Grade II listed building. Despite the castle, the view from up there is a sight to behold, and whilst you’re there you can head to the driving range for £6 whack about to get your anger out of your body and down the green.

Skyline Walk

6-mile walk starting at the east of the City Centre, offering views of rolling hills and architectural housing across Bath. This woodland trail is a fantastic trip to bring a picnic and a portable speaker to give you the headspace you need to getaway.
