Sightseeing and landmarks in Bath

Art museums

Art Museum
“Whether for the exhibitions, a cup of coffee/ light lunch in the excellent cafe, or a stroll around the gardens, a walk along stately Great Pulteney Street to The Holburne Museum is a must for those wanting to savour a flavour of regency Bath; for the 2004 Vanity Fair film starring Reese Witherspoon, Great Pulteney Street was transformed into 1820s London. ”

“This recommendation is all about getting you out of the heavily-trodden tourist routes in favour of some greenery. Follow Pultney Street out of town towards the Holbourne Museum. The cafe is simple, coffee is great. A lovely place to spend an hour taking in some natural beauty. ”

Park
“if you like walking and views this is a great one to visit. Perched on the summit of a wooded hill overlooking the city, Alexandra Park is one of the best places to go for views of Bath and its surrounding countryside. It’s accessible by car or bus, or by climbing the zig-zag path that rewards your efforts with spectacular views once you reach the top. ”
