The region surrounding Bath is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world. You can see so much of what makes this part of the country so special, if you are based at No. 2 Larkhall Square. Within 45 minutes drive you could be at the seaside eating Fish and Chips overlooking the sea, or you could jump on a train if you prefer. There are even Steam Trains running out of Bath to Weymouth for a really traditional day out! Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles are both no more that 45 minutes drive away and you are on the doorstep of all the beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. Bristol is only a 10 minute train ride away and is full of fascinating places to visit. Steeped in a rich history the Bristol Harbourside is a day out in itself. If stately homes are your thing then Lord Bath's Longleat House and its famous Safari Park are about 30 minutes drive, and there are many other National Trust Properties close by. Country walks are plentiful and you will be able to find some wonderful Pub Lunches along the way. The West Country is steeped in history and Mysticism. Glastonbury is only 45 minutes away by car and is a lovely place to spend a day,as is the tiny City Of Wells with its moated Bishops Palace. You will need more than a week to explore the whole region.....but you can always come back!
In the immediate vicinity there are many attractions, most obviously, Bath City itself. A World Heritage site, it is a splendid place to enjoy a City Break. All tastes are catered for whether you be a Culture Vulture, A Foodie, or a Hedonist! You can eat, shop and enjoy Museums and Art and much much more.
The renowned Thermae Bath Spa draws a lot of people to the city and is an absolute must. You can watch the sun going down over the rooftops from the Pool right at the top of the Spa before getting dressed up for a night on the town. You can watch Glass Blowing at the famous Bath Aqua Glass and take home a lovely piece of Handmade glass. Visit the Royal Crescent and pop into No.1 Royal Crescent. A completely restored Georgian townhouse showing life as it would have been in the 18th Century in Bath. The Kings Circus, just along from the Crescent , is worth a stroll and the Royal Victoria Park is just around the corner if you wish to rest your weary legs before hitting the shops. The Theatre Royal Bath is where many productions and plays get an airing before hitting the West End. There are lots of Cultural Festivals all year round in Bath, including the International Music Festival and The Literary Festival, various foodie festivals and the popular Bath in Fashion Week. There are plenty of Cafes to enjoy; but no holiday in Bath would be complete without afternoon tea at The Pump Room following a visit to the Roman Baths. That is only a small taste of what is on offer in Bath. In the immediate vicinity of No.2 Larkhall Square there are shops and a couple of really lovely cafes to enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat. There are proper shops including a butchers and a greengrocer. There is a lovely little Theatre called The Rondo which offers an excellent evening programme and can be booked in advance via the website. Just 10 minutes from the house is the Solsbury Hilll that Peter Gabriel sang about! Climbing that on a clear day is a great experience and will reward you with spectacular view from the top. There are lovely little villages and lots of walks including The Cotswold Way accessed from just up the road. Larkhall is the ideal place from which to enjoy Bath and the surrounding area. It is peaceful yet only a stones throw from the city centre.
