Bath Travel Guide | What To Do and What To Eat – UK Staycation

Is the charming World Heritage city of Bath on your list?  With the rise of staycations and daycations I highly recommend Bath! I visited Bath for two days recently and thought to share eight things you can do and six places to eat or drink at in Bath. Hopefully this Bath travel guide is helpful for your next trip.

Things To Do in Bath


1. Roman Baths

The Roman baths are a well preserved thermae constructed in the 70AD. If this is the only place you come to in Bath, it will be worth it.

You can purchase your ticket online and grab an electronic tour guide once you show your ticket at the door.


2. Pulteney Bridge

The Pulteney Bridge is a lovely bridge with a horse shaped weir. The bridge also has shops incorporated on it. During the warmer months it is possible to take a boat along the River Avon. The Pulteney Bridge is a must visit and is a very beautiful place to look around.


3. Boat Ride

During the summer you can take a boat ride on the River Avon with different companies such as Pulteney Cruises etc . I love taking boat rides but unfortunately I visited Bath in the winter so I was not able to take one.


4. Bath Abbey

Bath Abbey is a church, where you can visit to look around, as well as take trip up to the tower to look at the views of Bath.


5. Bath Bus -Skyline Tour

The Bath tour bus has two tours, one of Bath city and one of the Bath Skyline. I personally only took the Bath Skyline tour which would be lovely during a warm summer day.


6. Royal Crescent

Royal Crescent is one of the most architectural landmarks in Bath. It overlooks the Royal Victoria Park and is formed of a sweeping crescent of 30 terraced houses. The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, a five star hotel is also located at the Royal Crescent. It is a great place to take pictures due to its unique shape.


7. Thermae Bath Spa

Thermae Bath Spa is Britain’s only natural thermal spa located in the city centre. It is a very popular spa to visit that has a rooftop thermal pool.


8. Jane Austen Centre

If you are an avid reader of Jane Austen books then this location is a must for you. You can learn more about Jane Austen’s life and her works here.


What To Eat In Bath

I enjoyed the food in Bath and so in this Bath travel guide I have decided to share the different places I ate at.


Sally Lunns Historic Eating House

Sally Lunns is the oldest house in Bath that serves the historic Sally Lunn bun. They also serve other food.


Cafe Au Lait?

Cafe Au Lait is a popular brunch spot that I highly recommend.


Scallop Shell

The Scallop Shell is an amazing fish and chips restaurant that really impressed my tastebuds!


Taka Taka Takeaway

I ordered the Lamb Souvlaki wrap from Taka Taka for takeaway at my apartment which was a really great choice for me.


Mrs Potts Chocolate House

Mrs Potts is a popular café that specialises in different hot chocolate drinks.



Shakeaway have different types of milkshakes which I think are nice for a quick drink although they did overcharge me and I didn’t notice until later.
