Park and Ride

by asitava

Hi:
I am from Dubai and will be traveling to Bath in mid-August from Cheltenhham by car. I thought to park my car at Lansdown Park and Ride and take the bus to city center. My English colleague painted a bleak picture of park & ride system saying that I would have to wait in the rain for the bus to the city center, that it would be very slow and that I would never find the bus way back. Is it that bleak or park & ride system work as well as promised in the websites ?

Haven't used the Bath one, but have used many others. I see no reason at all why Bath should be any worse. They are effective systems, and save a lot of parking hassle and expense imo.

I would be very surprised indeed if there are no shelters for the rain. Bus stops are usually pretty central and clearly marked.

will give you all the info, including where to catch the bus back.

You could go by train, if you don't want to drive/park/ride. www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you train times and fares.

I have used the Bath park and ride and it as easy to use and as efficient as all the other park(s)
and ride(s). You will have no trouble at all using it. And it sure beats negotiating the Bath traffic and avoids the horrendous parking charges.

I've visited Bath last September. Bath is a busy city with a lot of traffic and parking within the city is expensive. There are 3 park & ride parkings around Bath. We used the park & ride parking at Newbridge. The parking is very big with a bus leaving to the city center every 10-15 minutes. It only costs 2,5 £ return ( 2 £ during the weekend) It works perfectly. And you can't get lost. The bus will pick you up at the same place you were dropped in the center. I prefer it anytime to driving into the city center.

USE the park and ride. Bath is a nightmare full of one way streets and loops. The bus does all the navigation for you so you can just get dropped off in town, and is far cheaper and faster than parking in town. The bus stop is dead easy to find - the same one you get off you get on again, so if you can remember where you came from you can remember where to get back to. As for waiting in the rain... a chance as busses run about 10-12mins I think, but its not THAT bad. I used to live in Bath and never drive into the centre when I go back to visit, always use Park and Ride

Travel Tips for Bath

Question - What Makes Bath A Living City?

by johngayton

Answer - Social Housing!!

Despite all its Georgian grandeur Bath has always been a city which has been lived in by those who do the work. The Circle and the Royal Crescent were designed for the high and mighty but the servants quarters were built into the buildings, albeit "below stairs" (and in fact below ground level). Workmen's terraces were built with the same Bath Stone and whilst not with the ornate finishes were solidly built.

To the casual visitor Bath might seem a rich person's city but that same casual visitor should realise that a good proportion of the city centre's housing is what we call "social housing". That's why it's a living city. Buying a property here will cost you London prices but rents through the local housing associations can be amazingly cheap - there just happens to be a long waiting list :(

In the 1960's and 70's most British towns and cities did their best to remove their populus from their centres - commercial developments being seen as more profitable than residential. It almost happened here in Bath when they developed the south side, taking away its heart and replacing it with a shopping mall. But the city was too small to totally redevelop and Bath stood on its own hind legs and growled in the face of the planners. "GRRR! We are a living city...let us live in our city."

It happened and it works. Bath is a very touristy city and much of its income relies on that, but it is still very much a people's city. Just drop into the odd bar here and there and if you don't feel welcome that's you, not the Bathonians! If you fancy living in Bath as a real person here's the website: Bath Living

Much more to Bath than its 11 million tourists a year!

Mud Bath

by greebo

The local legend of how the spring was discovered by Bladud son of the legendary king of Britain Lud Hudibras. Apparently Prince Bladud contracted leprosy and was exiled from court. He got a job as a swineherd but the pigs he was looking after also contracted leprosy. He used to drive the pigs over the River Avon at a place called Swindford which still exists. One day Bladud left the pigs alone and maddened by the leprosy the ran away up, coming at last to a black evil-smelling bog whereupon they threw themselves in. When Bladud managed to pull them out of the bog the pigs were cured of the leprosy, so Bladud also threw himself into the bog and became cured. Whereupon he returned back to court and the hot springs became famous for their healing powers. Sadly this time that I visited the Baths, it had changed a lot, due to the amount of visitors to the Baths they have now erected walkways and exhibit rooms. You used to be able to actually walk around the pools and steam rooms but this is now impossible.

Free guided walking tour

by londonlover

I say this is off the beaten path because, in comparison to the number of tourists I saw in Bath, there were relatively few gathered for the evening tour I took.

The tours are guided by the "Mayor's Honorary Guides of the City of Bath"--locals who do this for free, because they love showing off their city.

Our guide was friendly, enthusiastic, and funny, and he gave us great insight into history (ancient and modern) that we never would have found out on our own. The tour lasts about two hours and departs from the Abbey Churchyard daily at 10.30am; M-F at 2pm, Sat 2.30pm, and occasionaly evenings during the summer. Check with your B&B for the latest details.

The Bath Abbey...

by coceng

This is another side of The Bath Abbey, looking beautiful amidst the night lights...
It's so queit around the abbey, just the time & place that I wanted to be although I was there with Radek, the Harry Potter guy that I met at the hostel where I stayed...
