Basic Information

The City of Bath is one of England’s tourist gems and has been welcoming visitors for over two millennia.

This historic city has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and presents some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, most notably the famous Roman Baths.

The Baths are not alone in being one of many great tourist attractions to be housed all within the boundaries of one city – take for example the ancient thermal springs, which are now numbered as one of the UK top five tourist attractions.

From the moment you arrive you will feel the wealth of heritage and soak up the culture in one of the UK’s best loved cities.

It’s illegal to park on double-yellow lines at any time. On single yellow line you can only park outside working hours – a small sign will say exactly which times. Usually you’re OK on a single yellow on Sundays, and weekdays after 6.00pm or before 8.00am. Vehicles illegally parked will probably be towed away by a big lorry. It costs £125 to recover the car and there’s no getting out of it.

Taxi Information

The place to get a cab is at the railway station or at Orange Grove, behind the Abbey. You don’t need a cab to get around the centre of Bath – it will be quicker walking – and if you’re going to somewhere on the outskirts from the centre you should think about booking a taxi!

Tourist Information

The Bath Tourism Centre is located at the Abbey Churchyard, just south of the Abbey
