6 Unusual Things To Do In Bath

When looking for bed and breakfast in Bath, you will no doubt want to consider staying in the heart of this World Heritage City. You’ll find a number of quality accommodations, including The Royal Hotel, which is conveniently only a few yards from the town centre, and is within walking distance of several shops, the Roman Baths, and the Abbey.

Once you have your accommodation in Bath taken care of, it’s time to take in some of the sites! For this trip, why not do something a little different, maybe even unusual?

Trike Tour from Razorcat Tours
Take a tour of Bath or the beautiful country side on a motorcycle trike with Razorcat Tours. Your trike chauffeur will pick you up right outside your hotel! Take in all the sites in Bath like The Royal Crescent, The Circus, Pulteney Bridge and Lookout Point. This is truly a unique and exciting way to see the city and soak up all the grandeur of the parks and fascinating Georgian architecture.

Sally Lunn’s Museum
Near the Bath Abbey, this little place has two claims to fame. First, it is the home of the world famous Sally Lunn’s bun, a tasty little morsel that is not to be missed (be sure to get some to go). Secondly, the building is believed to be the oldest house in Bath. Inside Sally Lunn’s you can delight in tea and a bun in the Jane Austen Room. (Jane was a big fan!)

The Jane Austen Centre
Right in the heart of the city, between Queen Square and The Circus is the Jane Austen Centre. You are greeted here by staff members who don costumes from the Regency period and share their extensive knowledge about Jane Austen and the time she spent here in Bath between 1801 and 1806. Take a walking tour with one of the experienced guides, and you’ll see places Jane mentioned not only in her letters, but also in her novels, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey.

Stonehenge
This unbelievable site draws people from all over the world and is simply a site that must be seen. Some of the 3000 year old volcanic bluestones that form the inner rings of this anomaly were moved here from Wales-over 160 miles away! This is another World Heritage site and it’s less than an hour away from Bath.

Moles Club
Ready for some live music? Moles Club is one of the finest live music venues in the UK. Some of the best rockers in the world hit the stage here early in their careers. Bands like the Eurythmics, The Cure, Mumford and Sons and Radiohead have all played here.

Hot Air Balloon Flight
Breathtaking might be the only word to adequately describe the view of this historic city from high above in a hot air balloon. The balloon tours last 3-4 hours, during which you will not only see the city and the fabulous country side, but you’ll also learn something about ballooning. This is truly an experience of a lifetime.
