Bath at a glance

Situated in the beautiful countryside of the South West England, Bath is the largest city in the county of Somerset. 

One of the UK’s most charming cities is known for its Roman-built baths, hot springs, and its beautiful Georgian and Palladian architecture. With its blend of history, contemporary cool, friendly community atmosphere, and vibrant culture, Bath has earned its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

The city is overflowing with a variety of attractions to visit including the Roman Baths, Holburne Museum, Sham Castle, Jane Austen Centre, and the Royal Crescent.

The home of, and inspiration for, many of accomplished author Jane Austen’s novels, the city is also steeped in arts and culture, with plenty of festivals celebrating literature, music, art, comedy, food and films.

This deep sense of art and culture draped with beautiful and historic architecture makes for the perfect setting for year-round events, including concerts, carnivals, sports, and exhibitions. 

Therefore, it’s no surprise that Bath is an enticing spot for tourists with an average of over 300,000 tourists visiting each year. In 2018 it was the 11th most visited town or city in the UK. This small but gorgeous city is easy to navigate on foot and by bike. It’s also conveniently located - only 15 minutes from Bristol and 90 minutes to London. 

It’s also a great place to live for students.

Bath is friendly and safe

On top of its beauty and vibrancy, Bath is safe. 

It’s ranked as one of the safest student cities in the UK by the Complete University Guide. Also, the 2018 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey ranked it the second safest city in England and Wales with two or more universities.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with activities to choose from any day of the week whether it’s a night out in the city's bars and clubs or a meal out with friends.

The nightlife in Bath

Though it’s a small city, Bath’s nightlife should not be underestimated. 

Beneath (literally) the city’s beautiful exterior is its club scene. Due to noise pollution rules, most of its clubs and bars are small underground set-ups that are always packed and buzzing.

The Second Bridge, Zero/Zero, Po Na Na, Komedia, The Nest, and Moles are student favourites. The neon-lit nightclub and bar Khoosoosi, which is located in vaulted cellars, is also an intriguing option.

Shopping and eating out

A popular shopping destination, Bath offers some of the best shopping experiences in the UK. 

The city has a great mix of independent shops, high-street brands, and fashionable boutiques. The majority of the high-street stores are located in the SouthGate shopping centre. 

Bath has plenty of restaurants, cafés, and delis to suit all tastes from several well-known chains and independent establishments. There are loads of supermarkets, including Polish and Asian ones in the centre of town as well as in the outskirts. 

A NUS (National Union of Students) card will give you student discounts in a lot of shops, restaurants, and cafés. 

Enriching cultural experiences

If you’re looking for a different experience than a vibrant night out, you can always discover the colourful history of this ancient town.

There are loads of historic sites to visit when you're not buried in the books. Enjoy major exhibitions in one of the city’s 17 museums or be inspired by the art at The Holburne Museum, nestled in the picturesque Sydney 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.

If you’re in the mood to catch a blockbuster flick or a play, Bath has a good selection of cinemas and theatres, including The Theatre Royal, The Little Theatre cinema, and ODEON. 

You can keep it even simpler and more organic by soaking in the refreshing thermal water of the city’s amazing Roman baths. Try Britain’s only natural thermal spa (Thermae Bath Spa). Take a boat trip along the river or relax in one of the city’s many parks and gardens.
