A day in Bath

Annexe Yew Tree Cottage- Bath signs

A day in Bath?  What do you want to do?

You have settled in the Annexe Yew Tree Cottage. You now need to organise your day in the beautiful city of Bath.  Although the city is quite small, the choice is great.  Visiting or shopping?  The Annexe is 9 miles away from the city.  You can drive to the Park and Ride in Lansdown and the bus will take you straight to the centre of the city in Milsom street.  The Park and Ride is opened all day from 6.15 am until 8.30 pm during the week and from 8.30 am until 6.30 pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

A day in Bath, what next?

You have arrived in Milsom Street.  In the morning, I would recommend that you visit the Roman Bath.  They can be quite busy especially in the Summer or week-ends.  When you arrive by the Roman Bath, admire the beautiful Bath Abbey.   You may be able to visit it later.

You will need a couple of hours for the visit.   Wander with the Audio guide and learn about the history of this beautiful place!

When you have finished your visit, you will be able to buy some souvenirs in the shop or try to have lunch or high tea in the Pump Room.


Your next choice for a day in Bath.

You can aim for Bath Abbey.  Admire the beautiful stained glass windows.  Go to the top and admire the view over Bath.

Bath is a city with a few museums to visit.  Bath is well-known, however as a Georgian city so why walk towards the Circus and Royal Crescent?

You will like the buildings as you make your way up to the Circus.  Why not pop in the Assembly Rooms and admire the ballrooms where Jane Austen used to go?  In the basement, you can visit the Museum of Costume.

When you leave go across the Circus.  Take a close look at  buildings, then admire the architecture.  Do not walk straight to the Crescent however but have a look at Margaret’s buildings.


You cannot finish your day in Bath without looking at the Royal Crescent. Maybe you will have time to visit Number 1 the Crescent and get an insight of life in Bath during Georgian Times.


You certainly need another day to visit other places in Bath.
