Things to do in Bath on a Budget

With its grand Georgian architecture and fascinating stories spanning centuries, Bath is one of the best places to visit in South West England.

It is also one of the most expensive cities in the country. Its prestigious status has meant it has always been a city of wealth, which has only caused prices to continue to inflate.

Bath Abbey

Bath Abbey is the centrepiece of the city. It was where the first king of all of England, Edgar, was crowned – look for the plaque commemorating him as you walk around outside.

The Circus

The Circus was constructed by John Wood the Elder in the Georgian period. He was interested in prehistoric stone circles and wanted the terrace to mimic The Colosseum in Rome and Stonehenge in Wiltshire.

The Crescent

This is one of the most famous buildings in Bath. Also constructed by John Wood the Elder, it has been used as the film set of many movies and TV programmes – including the recent period drama Bridgerton.

Sydney Gardens

You can stroll around and admire the beautiful plants and take in the exterior of the famous Holburne Museum – a Grade I listed building that now serves as an art gallery.

Kennet and Avon Canal

The Bath section of the Kennet and Avon canal is a beautiful place to go for a walk, run or bike ride near the centre.

The Bath Skyline

This walk involves a hill, but worth the effort as you’ll be graced with an incredible panoramic view over the city centre including the historic abbey, Georgian buildings and surrounding scenic countryside.
