Travel Tips for Bath

Hot Running Water

by greebo

The sacred spring itself rises to surface at temperatures of about 46oC. The spring was dedicated to the Goddess Minerva and bathing was not allowed, offerings to the goddess were throw into the spring as it was deemed a holy site. Water was fed from the spring and flowed into the Baths themselves, the baths had varying temperatures as ladies were deemed not to be able to take the very hot water unlike the men (oh yeah) a cold plunge pool were also used and the romans would get out of a hot bath into the cold. One of the rooms at the bathing house was used as an earlier form of the turkish Bath. Many of the statues surrounding the main bathing area are from the 1890's. The baths are not used for bathing anymore and viewing the murky green water believe me you wouldnt want to. Koi carp now swim in the main bathing area. In the museum section Romans mosaics are on display as well as a few roman coffins and their inhabitants (so the spring didnt alway cure all), various artefact including a head of the statue of Minerva.

A nice village just outside Bath, Bathwick

by daelight

There's a lovely canal walk that starts from Bath and you can walk all the way to Bradford-on-Avon (it takes 2 1/5 hours - it's 14km away!) If that's too much heel action just 20 minutes away is Bathwick and it has a fantastic Pub called The George right by the canal so you can rest your tired feet here in an idilic setting. As you walk along the path there are many colourful boats (an people) who live on the river. It's really interesting walk.

St. Christopher's Inn

by graeme83 about Bars & Pubs

Another good lively spot. Similar to the Rat and Parrot it is often full in the evening of people on their way out to a club. During the day though the place is relatively quiet and has sports on the TVs at the weekend. If you like cricket and there is an international match on it will be on the screens during the day. I remember having a meal in here once and my friend's bangers and mash looked and tasted great.

The place has since changed its name to Belushi's, but is pretty much the same as before. The hostel above the bar is still called St. Christopher's so I've kept the tip with the same name.

Lebanese Restaurant

by graeme83 about Arabesque

In a cozy corner on the second floor in The Podium lies Arabesque, the only Lebanese restaurant in town. The low wooden tables, the soft Lebanese music in the background and the wall decoration give the place a very friendly and attractive atmosphere. It offers an open buffet everyday for lunch – from 12:00 to 15:00

Good lunch-time value

by toonsarah about Arch Restaurant

Tucked away in Queen Street. I found this attractive restaurant which offered a light lunch menu – just what I needed. There is also a set menu (£10.95 for 2 courses, £13.50 for 3 at lunchtime and before 7.30 in the evening) if you’re looking for a more substantial meal. I liked the warm colours and fresh flowers, and settled into a corner table

My Eggs Royale (£7.95) consisted of muffins with smoked salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. The dish was very tasty though I felt it could have been warmer. Service was friendly but quite slow, especially with only four tables occupied. I didn’t bother with dessert but a couple near me were making very appreciative noises about their apple crumble, which was just as well given how long they’d waited for it.
