Firstly, make sure you take in the unique sight that’s Pulteney Weir. With a history that goes all the way back to 1603, the weir is home to the beautiful Pulteney Bridge – and a photo of it is compulsory! If you’re more into your buildings and architecture than your history then you can enjoy the iconic Roman Baths building from one of its most fascinating angles – the outside. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the city’s biggest attractions.

Don’t miss the chance to explore the city’s university during a visit, and while it’s not quite as dazzling as some of the Georgian buildings it’s well worth going to have a look around. If you’re feeling energetic why not pull on your walking boots and walk the Bath Skyline? It’s a great way to experience the views of the city and stretches for an exhilarating 10km. Lastly, take your pick from the city’s free museums. Each one specialises in something different and they remain huge attractions.
