About Bath

Looking to visit somewhere filled with beauty, history and style that boasts vibrant nightlife, delicious food and stylish shops? Then welcome to Bath.

Designated a UNESCO world heritage site, this unique city has been popular with visitors since Roman times. You can still walk in the footsteps of the Romans today, by exploring the historic Roman Baths.

Bath is also the only place in the UK where you can bathe in naturally warm spa water. Take a dip in the rooftop pool at Thermae Bath Spa and experience the new Wellness Suite, inspired by the Roman and Georgian eras.

We’re not just a city about history and heritage though. Whether you’re backpacking on your own or planning a hen party, the lively nightlife offers something for everyone. Sip cocktails in sophisticated bars; enjoy a locally brewed pint in a traditional pub; have a laugh at a comedy night; see the latest show at the theatre; and dance into the small hours at one of Bath’s night clubs.

If you love food, then we’ve got plenty to offer! There’s something to suit all tastes, including pub grub, cheap eats, afternoon tea, Michelin-starred dining, street food and cuisine from around the world. Take a look at our food and drink page for more inspiration and to book your table.
