Get cycling at Bath’s Brassknocker Basin this spring

So we all know how much there is to see and do in the centre of Bath, but there are some fantastic days out for those of you who fancy venturing a little further afield too. The Canal Visitor Centre is found at the delightfully named Brassknocker Basin just five miles from the city centre, and you can hire boats or bikes there and get on with a day of activity.

Take the chance to enjoy the greener side of Bath and the stunning countryside that surrounds it. Once you leave the visitor centre you can head to some of the points of interest which is just short journey away – including the Claverton pumping station and Dundas Aqueduct. As there are no roads to contend with along the canal it makes a lovely place for a family bike ride, and you can even hire bikes for all ages at the beginning of the cycle track.

Book a room at the Royal Hotel in the centre of Bath and look forward to returning to luxury after a busy day on the canal. This Bath city centre hotel is perfect for families or couples looking to get away from it all and it includes thoughtful touches that make its elegance even more welcoming.
