Golf

If you would like to play a bit of sport and perhaps one that has less contact than rugby, why not try a bit of golf? Bath Golf Club is situated at Sham Castle, Golf Course Road and is a wonderful course to play on. This course just so happens to be one of the oldest courses and is one of the best in the local area. Establish in the late 19th century, this golf course really made a name for itself, and you’ll understand why when you see the amazing views.

There are special golf packages on offer to any keen golfer who visits the area between April and September and they could help to make your time here a little more special.

Football

If you’re a fan of the footie, then you need to head to Bath City Football Club. Found at High Street, Twerton, the football club is a delight for fans of Bath and other clubs. With the ability to hold up to 8,800 people, the ground is certainly a popular one and will make your time in the city a little more exciting. Founded in the late 19th century, Bath City Football Club has become an integral part of Bath and watching a match here could be a great day out for the whole family.

Cycling

If you’re lucky enough to be able to bring your bike to Bath or you get the chance to hire one, then you should join the Avon Valley Wheels for a trip out. The route will take you along the Bristol and Bath Railway path and is just under ten miles long. The good news is you will stop off along the way and have the chance to enjoy a meal at a café and even watch some steam trains if you’re here during the weekend. This is a great way for you to enjoy the local scenery and all that it has to offer. Make sure you pack suitable clothing and water so you’re comfortable during you bike ride.
