The West Country region
The city of Bath is one of the top tourism centres in the UK. Its attractions, besides the wonderful Georgian architecture, include Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths, the Pump Rooms, the Royal Crescent and the Thermae Bath Spa with its rooftop swimming pool. It has a variety of theatres, museums and other cultural and sporting venues. For eating out and shopping you're really spoilt for choice, and The Christmas Market, held in the heart of Bath's main shopping district, with over 100 traditional chalets adorning the streets, is well worth a visit. In 2013 it runs from 28th Nov-13th December. Wander the quaint Georgian streets, following in Jane Austen's footsteps, and pop into one of the lovely teashops to sample a traditional Bath Bun.
Bristol is a cosmopolitan city which has something for everyone, and like Bath, is well blessed with shops, restaurants, museums and art galleries. The Harbourside area is particularly interesting and you can explore this popular maritime city from the water on boat tours. There's lots of fun to be had at Bristol Aquarium and AtBristol, a 21st century science and technology centre. The world's first great ocean liner, Brunel's SS Great Britain, Bristol Zoo Gardens and the Clifton Suspension Bridge are also major attractions.
Wells, the smallest city in England, is nearby, with its magnificent cathedral, dating back to about 1175 AD. Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Longleat, and many National Trust properties such as Stourhead, are all within easy reach, as are the attractive Cotswold towns of Cirencester and Tetbury.
The countryside around Marksbury is ideal for walking, and boasts many country pubs, serving great food. Facilities for golf, swimming, horseriding, fishing, quadbiking, spa days and paintballing are all close by.
Marksbury is a village 5 miles from the outskirts of Bath and has an interesting church, believed to be late 12th century in origin. It is rural, but convenient for road and public transport links to Bath and Bristol.

"The perfect place to relax and enjoy Bath."

It was a pleasure to meet you both and we're sorry the start of your visit to Bath with the traumas of trying to hire a car, didn't go too well. We're glad, however, that you enjoyed seeing some of beautiful Bath and hope you had a good time on the remainder of your holiday in the UK. It's a shame you didn't get to see Cornwall as you'd planned, but maybe next time!
