Before you travel to Bath by train - good to know!

The city may be best known for its baths, but there is plenty of broader interest in this fascinating historic hotspot. Head to Bath Abbey to see fascinating Medieval architecture, learn about fashion throughout the ages at the Fashion Museum and enjoy beautiful green countryside at the nearby Bath Skyline walk which is six miles long and a short bus ride from Bath centre. It's very easy to get around generally, as Bath centre is heavily pedestrianised and cycle friendly. There are also plenty of buses which offer great value day tripper tickets, not to mention taxis and hire car services.
