Although Bath is widely known for its colorful history and gorgeous architecture, there are lots of exciting kid-friendly things to do in the city. Your first stop must be the Bath Maze, found on the east side of the Weir in Beazer Gardens. The paving stone maze is a favorite with younger children who play for hours trying to find the center. The central location of the maze makes this an ideal spot for families to take a picnic away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
At the junction of Monksdale and Hillside Road, you will find the entrance to Moorlands Play Area. The climbing equipment is well-designed and appealing to children and adults alike. Kids tend to ignore the swings, slides and helter-skelter slide and rush straight to the stream to watch the older ones sailing remote control boats. One of the best options to enjoy an afternoon at Moorlands is to pack a picnic and allow the children to let off some steam.
If you want to experience the best views of Bath with the kids, then head for Alexandra Park in Bear Flat. Access to the park is by a long flight of steps, otherwise known as Jacob's Ladder. At the top you can see for miles. If the children have not yet dropped from exhaustion, then direct them to the small play area while you prepare yourself for the downhill strait. Want to keep the kids busy during your Bath vacation? These family-friendly activities should do the trick.
