A family day out in Bath

Just what would an escape from it all be without the kids? Well ok, admittedly it would be a lot quieter and perhaps even more relaxing than entertaining the little cherubs, but we know you wouldn’t be without them – and that’s why we’ve found a day out you can enjoy during a spa break in Bath that’s ideal for the whole family.

Curious About Bath Spa is a family-friendly walk designed to showcase all the most interesting things about the city, and it’s a lovely way to get the children’s imaginations fired up before delving further into its history.

If you think the two hour version may be a little long for the children then it can be split into two shorter walks, from the abbey to the circus and from the circus to the Royal Crescent. The whole route is flat and convenient for those of you who need to take a pushchair, and there are plenty of public toilets along the way for those awkward “mum, I need the loo” moments.

Why not buy the walk booklet in advance so you can navigate your way along the route with ease? The walk is two and a half miles long in total.
