Making it the ideal destination to base yourself to explore all that the city has to offer, from the famous Roman Baths to the delicious afternoon tea at The Pump Room.

Green Park Station

This was once one of Bath’s main rail hubs, and it is still full of life today and is home to artisan and quirky shops. Regular market days see stalls selling antiques, independent art, vintage clothing and delicious locally produced food and drink. A real taste of the city of Bath.

Sally Lunn’s House

Bath’s oldest surviving house, Sally Lunn’s dates as far back as 1482, but it could be even older with artefacts in the cellar show early Roman inhabitants. The house is the birth place of Sally Lunn, who is the creator of a local delicacy Sally Lunn Bun which is a definite must-try for all visitors to Bath.

The Assembly Rooms

Once an exclusive place for high society, The Assembly Rooms were forever immortalised by Jane Austen herself. Today the rooms are open to everyone, but little else has changed, with the beautiful décor and stunning Georgian chandelier’s still hanging from the ceilings. You can even enjoy ta at the onsite café.

Prior Park Landscape Garden

Immaculately designed and kept, this 18th Century garden is just a stone’s throw from the bustling city centre. Home to the famous Palladian Bridge, which is one of only 3 in the UK, you can relax in this peaceful escape, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Bath Abbey

Bath Abbey has been an important place of worship for more than 1000 years, with the very first King of England being crowned in the Abbey in 973AD. Additions and improvements were made to the Abbey between 1864 and 1874, including the vaulted stone ceiling and much of the striking Victorian Gothic interior.
