Day 1 - Bath


Few people realize that Bath has a canal that stretches to Reading and beyond, but today you will be exploring it. Either take a day trip along the canal with Narrowboats of Bath, or explore the beautiful scenery by foot. However you choose to explore the canal you will have worked up a thirst, so go and quench it at the recently renovated Moon and Sixpence. After a few tipples head to the highly praised vegetarian restaurant, Demuths, for a taste sensation of a meal.

Day 2 - Farleigh Hungerford, Bath


Spend today exploring the hidden gems outside of the city. First stop is Farleigh Hungerford Castle, which offers great views and interesting stories. Next head to the American Museum, a well thought out museum in a mansion set overlooking hills southeast of Bath. Be sure to sample the wares of The Orangery, if only to make the most of the vistas. Now cross the city for the northern hills and climb Beckford's Tower, one of Bath's skyline's most interesting landmarks. You'll no doubt have an appetite by now, so head to Bengal Brasserie for a delicious Indian meal. Although the underground restaurant's on Bath's main shopping street few people seem to notice it, so it's always quiet. Round your day off with a drink in The Bell, situated in the heart of Bath's artisan quarter.

Day 3 - Bath


Spend the morning exploring some of Bath's lesser-known museums such as the Building of Bath Museum, and the Museum of East Asian Art. Head to Bottelinos for a delicious but reasonably priced Italian lunch (you can have pasta or a pizza for just £4.95 at lunchtimes). Walk your lunch off in Hedgemead Park and Sydney Gardens before making your way back to the city centre. Once there grab a table at the favourite local haunt, the Jazz Cafe, and treat yourself to a few drinks and a delicious meal. Wind up your visit to Bath in The Star; an unusually shaped pub that is popular with locals and that (unusually) still sells snuff.
