The largest city in Somerset, Bath is absolutely bursting with fun activities for all the family and is brimming with history – making it a lovely spot for a holiday or weekend away with your loved ones.
From escape rooms to theatres, museums to parks, and even a skyline walk thrown in for good measure, you can pretty much guarantee you won’t be short of things to do on your trip.
And, to give you a helping hand, we’ve picked out some of our favourite attractions.
The Roman Baths
Bath by name, bath by nature. The Roman Baths is one of the most popular heritage attractions in the country, featuring the remains of an ancient spa and temple. This is ideal for a day out with the kids – with family trails, costume characters, regular events and a child-friendly audio guide to keep both children and grown-ups entertained.
Royal Victoria Park
Looking for somewhere to walk, relax and take in some wonderful surroundings? Look no further than Royal Victoria Park. Opened in 1830 by Princess Victoria, the future queen, this is a vast expanse of green space spanning 57 acres. It is home to mini golf, an adventure playground, tennis courts and some beautiful botanic gardens.
Bath Escape Rooms
Don’t let rain stop play. The Escape4Fun escape rooms are set close to the city centre, offering visitors a customisable escape room experience. You can add props, select from different game levels and take on specially-designed puzzles to escape your fate.
Ok, ok. So this isn’t technically in Bath, but it’s only a short drive to the nearby Warminster and is well worth a visit. Longleat is a drive-through safari and adventure park that has been described as unforgettable, and for very good reason. You’ll be able to get up close and personal with giraffes, zebras and monkeys to name a few. You’ll also be able to observe a cheetah, tigers and two prides of lions. That’s not all, either. Longleat features a stately home and adventure park which promise to add further joy and history to an incredible safari experience.
