Day 3 - Bath

After dark you can enjoy a play at the world-renowned Theatre Royal, discover another side to the city on a Bizarre Bath walking tour, dance the night away at versatile club Moles, or tuck into some of the UK's finest Indian food in the stunning Eastern Eye restaurant.

Day 4 - Bath


LOCAL RECOMMENDATION: OPEN SPACES
Bath is surrounded by rolling English hills and chocolate-box villages. If you get the urge to explore it you have many options to choose from.

For something to get the mind ticking head to the ancient site of Stonehenge to form your own theory about how its mysterious rock formations came to be on Salisbury Plain.

For honey-coloured villages that you may have spotted in a whole host of films head to Lacock or Castle Combe. If you wish to get lost in the woods head to either the beautiful Westonbirt Arboretum or the regal Stourhead Garden.
