Boating in Bath

One of the best things about spa breaks in Bath is that they’re not only an opportunity to forget your cares and relax somewhere special for a day or two, but they’re also a great excuse to experience something new. Look a little closer at the city and you’ll find all kinds of things to do and ways to see Bath, and one of the most unique is setting off on the water from the Victorian boating station.

This pretty little boating station makes just the base for exploring the River Avon, and there’s an easy, navigable route along the river that enables visitors to see the views from a whole new perspective on the water. The boats can be hired for the hour and include punts, rowing boats and kayaks, so take your pick and get rowing!

Keep your eyes peeled as you sail along the water as you’ll be close to some of the county’s most important wildlife habitats, and you can expect to catch glimpses of kingfishers, herons and any other birds as you enjoy the journey. A journey from Bath’s boating station can be the icing on the cake for a visit to the city and a spa break.
