Bath's Top 10 Autumn Activities
For many Autumn is a favourite time of the year and Bath offers such a beautiful backdrop to most activities. So to help you get the most out of autumn, we have created our TGT top 10 list of the best must-see and do in Bath this Autumn, and there’s something for all the family.
1.) Roman Baths
A classic but who could ever tire of seeing this ancient world-famous site? Whether yore a romantic or a historian there’s plenty to get excited about. And with the Roman Baths ever-changing kids workshop programme to, meaning that it’s always to a good time to re-visit the Romans.
2.) Thermae Bath Spa
With an extensive therapy list including some incredible sounding treatments, you could almost insist that heading to the Thermae Bath Spa is an essential trip and not just a luxurious one. Check out their treatments when you check out the spa packages on their website. Our fav is the twilight package….
3.) Little Theatre
This renovated and family-owned (of some 80 years) old art deco theatre is now a wonderful cinema showing an eclectic mix of ‘splendid films’ and we recommend you check out their listings for the weird and the wonderful. There is also a kids club too, and if that wasn’t enough, it’s also the most delightful wedding venue.
Another glorious Bath building that has a new lease life is the old Beau Nash Cinema on Westgate Street which now hosts the venue Komedia. Komedia offers an extensive and brilliant programme of touring comedians, fresh musical talent, house DJ nights as well as kids events, burlesque nights and one-off screenings.
5.) Bath Skyline
This epic view of Bath is a 6 mile National Trust (free) walk which takes in woodland, open views of Bath and the Capability Browns Prior Park Gardens. This isn’t buggy friendly but parts are and is a dramatic view of Bath.
6.) Take Tea
We’ve written an entire blog on where to have afternoon tea here in Bath and the good news is that you are spoilt for choice! Did you really come to Bath if you didn’t pretend to be Jane Austen for the day?! Our top 3 picks are the prestigious Pump Rooms, the grand Royal Crescent, and the historic Sally Lunn’s, reputedly the oldest house in Bath.
7.) Take an Open Top Bus Ride
There are a plethora of historic must-see views to take in on a visit to Bath like the Circus and the Royal Crescent, our most famous of buildings but it doesn’t end there. If you want to save your feet then we’d recommend a guided bus tour when you can see the entire city sights.
8.) Take in the views of Bath from Alexandra Park
Of all the views that Bath has to offer, this is the most extensive and gives you a great idea of scale, plus you can see all the major sites too. Grab a bus or walk (hilly but worth it) to this beautiful hilltop play park (suitable for little ones) and prepared to be wowed!
9.) Bath Rugby
Bath has one of the most beautiful rugby grounds in the Premiership and is a vibrant place to be on a match day. The club is a jewel in Bath’s crown and adds a certain something to city life. If you’re visiting during the first part of the rugby season be sure to take a look at the fixtures.
10.) Theatre Royal Bath
We have one of the oldest theatres in the UK so it’s got plenty of stories tell, none more so than of its excellent programmes and touring productions. It’s also very beautiful even from the outside and we’d recommend checking out its current listings for an Autumnal treat.
However you spend your Autumn here in Bath, we hope you have a wonderful time.
