It is a pretty walk into town via Sydney Gardens, Great Pulteney Street ( the film set for Vanity Fair) and Pulteney Bridge ( filmed briefly in Les Miserables). Although slightly uphill coming back, the walk through Sydney Gardens is worth it and there are seats on the way back! Or the regular bus from the Abbey stops opposite our house, and a taxi costs £5-6. Bath University is about 4 min away by car, or the Uni bus stops on nearby Bathwick Hill.
Most visitors to Bath explore on foot. Although a bit hilly on the outskirts, the centre of Bath is fairly flat , but we can also recommend the Red Hop On Tour Bus as an easy way around. As well as beautiful architecture and museums, Bath has great shopping , places to eat and drink and a good theatre. There are some lovely parks and gardens to explore, take a balloon flight or a boat trip along the River Avon. In spring/summer we have various events for music and literature, including the famous Jane Austen Festival. And in the winter the Rugby, Half Marathon and a huge Christmas Market.
For an alternative day out, the maritime city of Bristol, ancient Stonehenge and the pretty Cotswolds are all within easy reach, by car or train, or escorted tours.
