Bath Vacations: What To See And Do When You Stay In Bath

If you are planning any kind of trip to the city of Bath, you have a number of different options for getting to the city. When it comes to Bath vacations you can either travel there yourself directly by car. Or if you would prefer and take some of the strain out of your holiday then why not go by coach or train instead.

When it comes to getting around the city itself one has the choice of getting a taxi or hopping on the local public buses. The other way and if you are feeling a little more energetic is to hire a bicycle instead. There are plenty of companies in the city that offer this facility and rental costs around 14 per day or 45 for a whole week's rental.

Along with the Roman's baths which are one of the main attractions in this city there are plenty of other things that one can do during your stay in Bath. If you want why not spend some time just wandering around the cities streets and view some of the most beautiful and graceful Georgian architecture that is to found in the UK.

If you are intending to visit the city during late May or early June then you may want to spend some time at the music festival that is taking place. For 17 days, you will find that more than 1,000 performers come to the city to provide you with different kinds of music to listen to. Along with classical music, you will find those performing jazz and other types of more modern music as well.

But if you want to just spend sometime relaxing then a visit to the Thermae Bath Spa in the city is a must. This building, which combines effortlessly the old with the new, allows you the chance to enjoy what the Roman's and Celt's enjoyed over 2,000 years ago.

You can elect to either pay for a 2-hour or 4-hour spa session during your visit and during this time, you have full access to the Minerva Bath. Also, you have access to the steam rooms and if you wish to you can use the open-air pool located on the buildings rooftop. It also offers you some spectacular of the cities skyline that you are unlikely to find anywhere else.

Also, to further enhance your enjoyment the spa also provides over 50 different treatments including ones that are actually designed to help promote relaxation and well-being. However if you do not have time to visit the spa itself take a trip round its visitor centre. This is where you will be able to learn more about just what an important role the spa has played in the history of this city. So you can see Bath vacations can be as fun filled and relaxing, as you want.

Slightly further afield is the World Heritage site of Stonehenge. You can get a sense of history when you visit this ancient stone circle and marvel at the effort that must have been put into getting all the stones across the countryside into this location.
