Bad: What You Need To Know

Location: The city is located in a valley near the River Avon, 18 km from Bristol and around 150 km from London. Bath Spa is the closest train station, with links to London and the north, and the city is close to an M4 exit.

The atmosphere: Bath is the largest city in Somerset, named for the Roman Baths, and is the only city in Britain that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Things to do: Bath is a wonderfully diverse, cosmopolitan city with something for everyone. It seems pretty obvious, but be sure to visit the city’s Roman baths (dating from AD 43) at the many designated spas and hotels. The café culture is unbeatable – and the city is home to a large number of fantastic restaurants, from cute and quirky to Michelin-starred fine dining. The shopping opportunities are wonderful too – as are the lively bars and nightlife.

schools: St Stephen Church School, St Andrew’s Church School, GDST Royal High School, King Edward’s School, and Bath Royal High School are all good options.
