Bath is, quite literally, at the centre of some of the most fascinating places to visit in England and is a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside, villages and towns. Below is a small selection of places you may wish to visit. However, always feel free to ask Douglas or Harry for more information to help you plan your trip.

Top Tips

PrintFor the easiest way to see the sites, without having to drive may we suggest MadMax tours and  Lions Tours who run daily trips  to many of these places from the centre of Bath. We are more than happy to provide you with an early breakfast as most tours leave around 8.15am to 8.30am from Paradise Gardens, which is about a 15 to 20 minute walk down from Hill House.

For those wishing to visit Bristol  the best route is by train which only takes  15 minutes from Bath, with three trains per hour during the day. A Freedom”AB” card will allow you to use the train and the buses in Bath and Bristol all day – the cheapest and best way to get around. Bristol is larger than Bath but is still walkable for the most part. We can print off a map for you so you can plan you day in advance.
