Please let me know if you would like to join and meet me by the City Highlights A board at 1.30. I will be about 10 metres in front of the Abbey entrance. This is opposite the Roman Baths entrance. On Saturdays it is difficult to park. The largest and cheapest car park for 4 hours or more is Charlotte Street. Or you could use a Park and Ride.
Curious About Bath Spa?
Bath City Centre, Starting From Bath Abbey, BA1 1NA
Have fun discovering Bath Spa with two self-guided, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt. Find answers to clues and match pictures whilst reading stories about this fabulous spa city – resident or just visiting, you’re guaranteed to spot things you’ve never noticed before.
Bath Spa is a glorious city, renowned for its hot spring baths. Yes, there are many select shops, high-class restaurants and eclectic bars, but to visit here is to visit England as it was over a century ago. Built on the picture-perfect River Avon there's a timeless Abbey cathedral, a Theatre Royal, and a Circus of spectacular buildings inspired by the Roman Colosseum. Once the centre of fashionable Georgian society Bath has outstanding parks, gorgeous gardens, and grand museums. A real must for anyone who wants to absorb England as it was!
