It’s right there in the name. Bath is well-known for its water attractions, such as the Roman Baths. However, there are plenty of additional attractions to explore in Somerset’s largest city. So, locals and University of Bath students, be sure to keep reading to learn about some of the other renowned attractions in the area.
The Jane Austen Centre
This is one of my personal favourites. Through the Jane Austen Centre, you will experience Regency life and learn how Jane Austen and her works were influenced by this beautiful city. Dress up, eat Regency food, and take a picture of Jane Austen’s waxwork. In a stunning Georgian building in the centre of the city, between Queen Square and the Circus, the Jane Austen Centre is a short walk from the Abbey and the Roman Baths, where you can continue your exploration around the city.
In 1830, Queen Victoria opened Royal Victoria Park when she was 11 years old. There are many attractions here and it is a short walk from the centre of the city. It is set against the historic Royal Crescent and features a plethora of activities. You can also cook on the grill and enjoy a picnic in the park with your friends.
