We may be in the midst of a cold snap but that doesn’t prevent winter visitors to one of England’s most beautiful cities… Bath.
Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Bath presents some of the finest architectural sights in Europe such as the Royal Crescent, the Circus and Pulteney Bridge alongside a diverse collection of attractions
The museums in Bath and beyond take you on a trip through time. There’s such an exceptional choice of things to see and do – from the world famous Roman Baths and the Jane Austen Centre (a shrine to the city’s most famous resident) to the Victoria Art Gallery and the Fashion Museum.
The River Avon and the Kennet & Avon Canal both run through Bath, and you can hire a boat at Bath Boating Station and row along the river at your own pace, or sit back and take in the beautiful scenery aboard a relaxing boat ride along the river or canal.
Bath’s compact city centre offers irresistible shopping and there are plenty of activities to enjoy in the surrounding area. Its reputation for shopping dates back to Georgian times – Jane Austen mentions the fashionable Milsom Street in her novel Persuasion, and it’s there that you can still treat yourself to some designer chic. The Upper Town is a treasure trove of unique labels and vintage clothing, and Stall Street is where you’ll find your favourite High Street shops.
It is undoubtedly one of England’s true charismatic delights, and its little wonder that Bath hotels are always in demand. With IKnow-Somerset, you can find all the latest deals and information on Bath hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and much more.

There is lovely coastline and countryside to explore, and Cheddar, Wells, Bristol, Bath and the Mendip and Quantock Hills are all within easy reach.
Weston beach has designated areas for wind and water sports, and there are boat trips around Weston Bay and further afield.
