10 unmissable things to do in Bath

Our top 10 must-sees in beautiful Bath

So you've got in to Bath, now you have to make the most of the next few years. Here's our handy guide of all the best things to do in and around the city...

1. Roman baths

Built by the Romans after their invasion of England, the Roman Baths are one of the most popular attractions in the south west. There is really no reason not to go since entry is free with your University of Bath library card!


2. Thermae Bath Spa

The Thermae Spa in the centre of Bath is Britain’s only natural thermal spa. With a range of packages and offers, you should definitely take advantage of the facilities at some point during your time at uni. It's the perfect post-exam relaxation treat...

3. Bath Skyline Walk

Bath’s Skyline walk takes you around a trail where you can see unbeatable views of the city from the surrounding hill tops. It is roughly six miles long and a great way to spend the day soaking in the beauty of Bath. Check out the National Trust website for the full trail route.

4. Gigs at Moles

Voted one of the best night clubs to see upcoming bands, Moles has lots to offer. From live music from the freshest upcoming bands to club nights playing all kinds of genres, Moles has something for everyone. Since its opening in 1978 bands such as Oasis, Radiohead, The Cure, The Vaccines – and even Ed Sheeran – have all played the venue. Moles, we love you!

5. Warleigh Weir

A lesser-known gem in the city located at the bottom of the hill past the Cats and Dogs home, Warleigh Weir is a great spot to chill out, swim in the water or have a BBQ in the summer.

6. Jane Austen Centre

Located on Queen square the Jane Austen Centre offers visitors a quintessentially British experience with the chance to discover more about the famed author and her time in Bath.

7. Live comedy at Komedia

Komedia is a converted-theatre turned performance venue which hosts a variety of comedy and club nights every week. Our particular favourite is Saturday’s legendary ‘Motorcity’ night which plays all the soul, funk and motown music you could ever need in life. Listings can be found on their website.

8. Bath Abbey

The centrepiece of the city, the Abbey is the largest of Bath’s many churches and a spectacular setting to see some classical music – particularly the University’s official Christmas carol concert! You can take a look around but check out the visiting hours on their website first, and remember they usually ask for a small donation (£1 for students).

9. Visit the Royal Crescent

An ideal to place to spend lazy afternoons with nothing to do as well as a take a few classy pictures before Summer Ball gets messy... The Crescent is a particularly perfect spot in the summer after exams are finished.

10. Tea at Sally Lunn's

Sally Lunn’s, known for its buns, is a tea shop and kitchen museum located inside one of Bath’s oldest houses. Tea here with a bun is an absolute must; just remember to have one with butter and another with jam (it would be simply unfair not to).

And there's so much more...

Not to mention Score on a Wednesday, the legendary Po Na Na, kebabs at Al Falafel's, Spoons, BYOB at Panahar's Indian restaurant, hanging with the ducks at the lake... We'll let you work out the rest.
