Bath is home to some unrivalled outdoor spots and places to discover. Whether you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, afternoon cocktails and food, or simply wanting to soak up some of Bath’s wonderful side streets and architecture, there’s plenty to see and do as we wrap up warm for an alfresco winter.
We’re very excited to welcome you to our alfresco terrace here at Bath Pizza Co this winter. Set beneath the huge, vaulted glass roof of the historic Green Park Station, there are ski chalet vibes aplenty. There are also lots of heaters, offering the perfect chance to cosy up and enjoy our regularly changing special Pizzas and our dreamy Garlic Bread, topped with garlic butter, mozzarella and parsley!
Cocktails and Cappuccinos
Also at Green Park Station is Green Park Brasserie. Watch the world go by while enjoying two-for-one cocktails or coffees on the alfresco front terrace. Dating back to the mid-1800s, the Brasserie was once the old booking hall for the station.
Now serving cocktails and an award-winning local food menu, once the sun sets you can enjoy the sounds of live jazz, funk and soul spilling out from the restaurant onto the terrace – especially relaxing during sun-drenched lunchtimes and lazy weekends under the terrace heaters!
Part of Bath’s unique charm is the ability to see so much on foot. Venture beyond the main streets of the centre and you’ll discover some of the city’s unknown architectural gems. Head north up Gay Street towards The Circus and Royal Crescent to find the charming Catharine’s Place, and, minutes beyond, St James’s Square; two of Bath’s finest residential squares. While you’re there, be sure to grab a local ale at the St James Wine Vaults pub, and a seat in their outdoor pavement area with the friendly regulars.

Explore the Artisan Quarter of Walcot Street
While exploring Bath on foot this winter, be sure to head to the Walcot area. Think artisan shops, bakeries and old-school pubs. Heading gradually out of Bath towards London Road, Walcot Street offers a completely different feel to other shopping parts of Bath, with a more independent feel. Pick up one of Bath’s newest takeaway options for a spot of brunch at Taylor's Bagels. Their Bacon, Cream Cheese and Sweet Chili Jam Bagel is top-draw and definitely worth the walk to the top end of town.
Bath Farmers’ Market
Every Saturday from 8am to 1pm, the Bath Farmers’ Market takes over Green Park Station, selling food and drink made within 25 miles of the city. A unique, alfresco (covered) shopping experience, the market is the longest-running in England and home to some outstanding producers and suppliers. Regular local produce found every Saturday includes cheeses, charcuterie meats, ciders, honey, pies, wild game, flowers, fish, bread and much more.
