Discover Bath

Student life in Bath

Walk in the footsteps of ancient Romans at amazing thermal springs and follow charming Georgian crescents to the town centre

Spend your student days in Bath strolling along delightful cobbled lanes, admiring the grandeur of sweeping crescents and exploring the many varied museums. Soak in the refreshing thermal water of the city’s amazing Roman baths before discovering the colourful history of this ancient town, the only UNESCO World Heritage city in the UK. Browse independent boutiques and spend sunny days in pretty parks. Dine in gastropubs for a true taste of contemporary British cuisine.

This small but gorgeous city is easy to navigate on foot. Climb the hills to appreciate the magnificent views and spot landmarks before heading down into the town to browse the fantastic array of shops. Explore the hidden gems in Upper Town, just north of George Street, uncover vintage wares in the Artisan Quarter of Walcot Street, or wander through the designer shops of Milsom Street.

When you’re not buried in the books at Bath Spa University or the University of Bath, you’ll find plenty of enriching cultural experiences in one of the city’s 17 museums. Be inspired by the art at The Holburne Museum, nestled in the picturesque Sydney Pleasure Gardens. Find out how the Georgian gentry and servants lived in No. 1 Royal Crescent and marvel at the remains of the ancient Roman Baths, dating back to 70AD.

Venture further with a day trip to the world-famous Stonehenge or Longleat Safari and Adventure Park. London is just 90 minutes away by train if you want to tour the capital.
