Seven Unexpected Things to Do at Green Park Station

If you're looking for somewhere unique to explore during your trip to Bath, look no further than Green Park Station. From partying to live music at some of Bath's best restaurants to strolling around Bath Farmers' Market, here are Alex Peters of Bath Pizza Co and Green Park Brasserie's seven top unexpected delights that you'll find in this wonderful spot in the city...

1. Party Under a Victorian Station Glass Roof

Enjoy alfresco live music events throughout summer, with local festivals and events taking place under the vaulted covered station. August sees the Bath Folk Festival returning to Green Park Station as well as gigs featuring Kasabian’s saxophonist Andy Kinsman.

2. Enjoy Some of Bath’s Finest Local Produce

One of Bath’s most popular independent restaurants, Green Park Brasserie, has been slightly ahead of the curve in terms of food trends. With a 'local' mantra to their sourcing and producers, the Brasserie have been working closely with Bath and Somerset’s finest farmers and suppliers since opening their doors way back in 1992!

3. Shop Local at Bath Farmers’ Market

The UK’s first Farmers’ Market takes over Green Park Station every Saturday from 8am-1pm. Here, you’ll find local cheese producers, farmers, charcuteries and connoisseurs of almost everything and anything food-related.

4. Explore the Former Train Station Booking Hall

Now the main restaurant space of Green Park Brasserie, the former railway station ticketing hall was left unloved before being given a new lease of life in 1980. Now, live music fills the room every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening.

5. Marvel at One of Bath’s Lesser Known Architectural Gems

Often overlooked, 'Bath Green Park' railway station’s facade is one of Bath’s lesser known architectural masterpieces. As railway station designs go, this one has to be up there with some of the best in the UK.

6. Tuck into a Pizza and Pint or Prosecco for a Tenner

One of Bath’s pizzerias is based in the former railway station. Bath Pizza Co (sister to Green Park Brasserie) have been producing award-winning wood-fired pizzas since they opened their doors in April 2016. Tucked behind the main entrance to Green Park Station, the £10 pizza and pint or prosecco deal is a popular offer with locals and visitors alike. 

7. Vintage Sunday Markets 

Flea and Antique Vintage markets take over the market square on Sundays from 9am-4pm, offering a unique shopping experience in Bath. From flea market style clothing stalls and vintage riffles and military memorabilia to furniture, vinyl records and antique lighting, these markets are unlike any other in the area.
