Bath In 24 Hours
So, you’ve landed in Bath, and you’ve got just 24 hours to explore the biggest and best that our beautiful city has to offer…this means you’ve got no time to waste…let’s go! Walking shoes at the ready!
First, grab a coffee and a pastry, you’ll need to keep your energy levels high. Head to the Bertinet Bakery on New Bond Street, to sample heavenly fare from Bath’s very own celebrity chef. We promise this is the best way to start your day here in Bath.
Find out more about the bakery here.
We want you to unwind as well as see the sights whilst you’re in town, it’s a city actually, and it’s a city because we have an Abbey and as you are passing, take a peek inside the Bath Abbey which is one of the most visited attractions in the south-west. We promise you won’t be disappointed. If you are very lucky you may catch some exquisite choral music.
Onwards to The Soul Spa for some directed meditation in their Zen Den, which really is as good as it sounds. (We will return you, to where-ever you came from, in a far better state than you arrived!), with some clear headspace and a mental declutter onwards we go.
Back the way you came to Marchants Passage where you can sample the best of Bath’s independent shopping. This is a truly off the beaten track ‘amble’ where you can shop jewellery, fashions, trainers, beauty products and even dog paraphernalia!
Shall we grab some lunch? Ever popular Cote in Milsom Place has a beautiful courtyard for sunny days or snug interiors for all weathers. Cote is ‘French Classics’ by description, but lunch typically could be from their set menu, think boeuf en croute, grilled chicken breast with frites…..exactly! Booking is recommended. (Dietary restrictions are catered for, see their online menus).
Book your table at Côte Brasserie here.
It’s a short walk to take in the famed Circus and the Royal Crescent but can you really say you’ve been to Bath if you haven’t got a selfie in front of Bath’s most famous landmark?! Plus, it’s pretty special and it’s not just us who will tell you so.
Find out more about the Royal Crescent here.
Walk back to the centre through The Royal Victoria Park and head for the Thermae Bath Spa for an hour or 2 of imagining Jane Austen and co supping the Bath waters and getting ready for a party at the Assembly Rooms or similar. Make a bee-line for their rooftop pool where you are sure to be impressed and try the new Wellness Suite too. You might not want to leave.

The Abbey Hotel will look after you until it’s time to head out again. With a trendy bar for a well-earned drink (and later a possible nightcap), and a wonderful French Classic Brasserie restaurant for dinner, it’s the place to be (if you come at Christmas it is also home to THE Ski Chalet).
Previously a cinema, Komedia is a venue that hosts more than just comedy, although the calibre of comedian it now commands makes for plenty of sell-out nights. If comedy isn’t your thing then that’s cool because they regularly host music nights, burlesque, and film events too. Check the listings! Whatever you choose, prepare for some fun.
And before not too long your time is nearly up. The Abbey Hotel is a short walk from the train station come the morning which will be most welcome after your dash around Bath. Come again soon when we can show you more of Bath.

We hope you’ve enjoyed your stay.
