What is there to do on a visit to Bath? More than you can imagine!

Although the city is famous for its beautiful architecture, iconic sights and fascinating history, all of which attracted visitors for thousands of years, there are plenty of other things to do in Bath too…

How about taking to the skies and viewing Bath from above with a hot air balloon flight? The Royal Crescent and other such iconic sights look equally as stunning from the sky as they do from ground level!

If exhilarating activities are right up your street, don’t miss the adrenaline pumping motorsports at Castle Combe Race Circuit, the chance to tackle the sheer rock face and climb Cheddar Gorge or the thrill of a live horse race at Bath Racecourse
