Have you explored Green Park Station? Once a Victorian railway station, today it's a top destination for eating, drinking, dancing, and shopping in Bath. Here Alex Peters from Green Park Brasserie shows off what it's got to offer...

Bath’s Green Park Station is home to some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes, and artisan food and drink producers.

The disused terminus saw the last train leave in 1966 and is now home to thriving local businesses. With live music, events, and markets every week, here are some of the best things to do in Bath at Green Park Station.

1. Live Music in the Historic Old Booking Hall of Green Park Brasserie

Celebrating 30 years of business this year, Green Park Brasserie is one of Bath’s most popular independent restaurants. The Steakhouse and Jazz Bar have four nights of live jazz, funk, soul, and swing every week in a buzzing restaurant set in the former booking hall of Green Park Station. Booking is highly recommended.
