Bath is a fascinating city, seeped in history from the Romans to the Georgian’s, while Bath of today is a fascinating mix of cultural events. The city offers one of the most vibrant programmes of festivals and events in the UK, embracing literature, music, film, fashion and food.
There are some must-see attractions and locations, including The Bath Abbey, The Holburne Musuem, the Circus, the Royal Crescent and more.
Shopping and dining in the city are also exceptional, but seek out the great independents to be found on the eclectic side streets, Bartlett Street, Walcot Street and Margaret’s Buildings.
Of course the city also has a Rugby pitch right in the middle of it too, home to Bath Rugby and some of the best players in the UK.
Below are just a few of the key events in the coming months and if you are planning to attend any of them, we would love to host you afterwards in our beautiful hotel, for a sound night’s sleep.
