Bath is a great place to visit with children and you’ll find a wide choice of family friendly accommodation, restaurants and places to go. Here are Hiremebaby’s top tips for visiting Bath with a baby…
1. Tourist Hotspots Are More Accessible Than You Think
While you can’t explore The Roman Baths with a buggy, they do offer a safe place to store it, and a baby carrier to carry your baby in comfort. Most places, including The Victoria Art Gallery and the Holburne Museum have street level access and lifts. Even the small (but fascinating) Museum of East Asian Art has a lift, and space enough to explore with a buggy with friendly staff eager to help.
2. Don’t Bring the Kitchen Sink
Hiremebaby is a local Bath business that hires out baby equipment including car seats, buggies, cots and other essentials, providing personal delivery to your accommodation, airport, or train station. They even offer a welcome pack full of nappies, wipes and baby food, that can be customised to make your stay as easy as possible.
3. Hotels Aren’t the Only Option
Bath has an excellent choice of self-catering accommodation in the city and surrounding area. This can be a great option when travelling with a baby, offering the creature comforts of home and the flexibility of extra living space.
4. Change Your Baby in Comfort
SouthGate shopping centre’s public toilets are reliably clean with dedicated baby change facilities, close to plenty of shops that the kids will love as much as you do. Rossiters of Bath can be found on Broad Street and they have a wide variety of treasures for your little ones, from craft kits to soft teddy bears.
5. Baby Friendly Eats
Head to the Egg Café for a spacious baby friendly environment, complete with play area and mirror ceiling to captivate your little one. Hall and Woodhouse is a big, welcoming place with an interior designed around the different rooms of a house. You can find a really comfy seat to feed your baby and feel right at home.
6. Escape the City
If you and your baby are in need of a break from the city, take a walk up the hill to the beautiful Prior Park. With stunning views across the city, this is a really special place. You can just about get around the park with a buggy but if you want to really explore, take a baby carrier.
