Bath

A great destination

A UNESCO World Heritage Site in the southwest of England in the county of Somerset, Bath is a popular destination and well worth a visit. Its geographical location is ideal due to its proximity to other major cities (1h30 from London) but also to the coast, 3 hours from Newhaven: one of the arrival points of our crossings. For a few days away or just a day trip, this historic and cultural city offers countless resources and activities, each as unique as the next. There's something for everyone!

Roman Baths, Bath

The Roman Baths

Bath is commonly referred to as the spa town and was once very popular with the Romans. The Romans were so fond of it that they built a spa complex around the city's natural hot springs. The Roman thermal baths are world-famous, and there are many culturally rich tours. The Roman architecture of the buildings is breathtaking, not to mention the breathtaking view from the Bath Spa on the roof of the pool. Let yourself be swept away by the feeling of well-being in a hot bath where the gentle vapours might even take you back to ancient times.

What to do in Bath

Next to the Roman Baths is St Peter's Abbey in Bath. Founded in 675, this building has undergone many reconstructions over the years, giving it a unique architectural style. After this visit, go to the famous Pultenay bridge which has the particularity of hosting houses and shops on both sides. A small staircase will allow you to access a charming labyrinth garden... The advantage of Bath is that the most beautiful places and activities to do are mainly concentrated in the historic centre, here are some examples: the Avon River to the east, the Green Park to the west, the Royal Crescent & the Circus to the north and of course James Street to the south! All of this can be explored on foot, allowing you to get a feel for the city. Don't hesitate to take a look at GetYourGuide where a large choice of activities is proposed, to satisfy all your desires!

In the footsteps of the Bridgertons

Bath is historically a high society location, although most of the scenes in the series were filmed in London, the Bridgerton Chronicle was quickly enticed to shoot many of them in the most beautiful locations in the spa town. Here are a few ideas for locations that can make for a fantastic itinerary... Start your day by stopping by the charming Abbey Green Square, which will take you straight into an episode. After enjoying a hot drink in the square's flagship café, head to Bath Street, one of the most distinctive and iconic streets that will remind you of many things! After crossing the Pulteney Bridge, head to the Holburne Museum where not only is the exterior a representation of Lady Danbury's house, but the interior contains gems from every era. You can conclude your time there by visiting the Tearoom and Ballroom (our favourite room), where the 18th century décor and atmosphere has been left intact for a total immersion.
