Things to Do in Bath – Short Trips

Bath, England is a wonderful place to visit. There are so many things to see and do, year round. First off, it is famous for its waters and its baths, naturally.  Here is a list of stuff one can do, over a weekend or a short trip.

Things to do while in Bath:

  • Visiting a Roman Bath – this is one of the most visited places in Britain. Obviously, one has to see one while in the town named after a bath. Go and check out the well-preserved Great Bath and taste the water from the fountain. Since the actual venue is closed for dips, visit alternative sites that facilitate the experience.
  • Pulteney Bridge – this is yet another must-visit place, especially when you are on a short break in Bath. Check out the cafes, shops and restaurants. This bridge is just one of 5 still in existence around the world.
  • Museums: There are a lot of beautiful museums in and around Bath. Try to spend as much time outdoors as possible and visit museums on rainy days. The Fashion Museum has an extensive selection of Victorian clothing on display. A list of museums includes the American Museum, Bath Architecture Museum and the Herschel Museum of Astronomy to name a few.  Check out the local listings before visiting.
  • Art Galleries: There are art galleries galore in Bath – the Victoria Art Gallery, Museum of Asian Art, and the Holburne Museum to name a few.

Visit the local tea houses and enjoy the experience of being served high tea, English style. Look up the entertainment section and catch a play or two if you have the time during a short break in Bath. And for those who like shopping, Milsom Street is the place to go. Whether you want collectables, antiques, food, books or anything else, this is the right address.

There are so many things to see and do that it is entirely possible that you will be back in this quaint town for at least another visit or two. Don’t pass up on the chance to enjoy the charm and beauty of Bath.
