Getting Around Bath

Aug 2 | Posts

The Artisan city of Bath with its many streets and side streets, pedestrian areas and the river make it easy to get around to see the sights and visit the many historic places which make Bath the City to visit by people from all over the world. Hopefully the following suggestions will help you to navigate around Bath and further a field.

On foot

Bath is mainly flat so walking around this UNESCO World Heritage city is an easy option with pedestrianised areas linking to the many side streets. Even those with mobility aids can get around most areas.

Bus tours

Are a great way to see Bath city, the open top bus tours are a favourite amongst tourists offering a bird’s eye view of the whole of the city. Why not get the First Bus App to buy your mTickets and plan your route? Other bus tours will take you to the outside of the city to places such as Glastonbury, Wells, Cheddar Gorge, Stonehenge, Bradford on Avon and more – Mad Max tours are well worth checking out with their many awards for excellence. They have 16-seater mini-buses, so no overcrowding, nice small groups led by experienced, local guides. Stonehenge trips are all year round with many other trips during March to October.

Bicycles

A fantastic way to get around the city and further afield, although you will find the many hills leading out of the city a bit of a challenge unless you have an electric bike, or you are incredibly fit! Bicycle hire is easy with Bath Greenpark Bike Station in the centre of the city. Choose from single day, 24 hours or multiple day hire, they are open all year. Bikes are Marin San Anselmo and San Rafael hybrids – new for 2019. Fitted with mudguards they are ideal for the canal path or road. Take a trip with breathtakingly views of Bath’s Georgian skyline, on the traffic free Two Tunnels route. Or ride to the centre of Bristol on the original traffic free railway path, through beautiful countryside. The Colliers Way is slightly more adventurous winding through a secluded valley, Cotswold stone village and past Jack and Jill hill!
