Best areas to stay in Bath

Originally a village, Bathwick was attached to the city of Bath via the iconic Pulteney Bridge in the 18th century. Located to the east of the River Avon, Bathwick features key sights, such as Great Pulteney Street, the Sydney Gardens and the Kennet & Avon Canal.

Walcot

Walcot Village is located north-east of the city centre and a short distance from Bath’s key landmarks. Also known as the Artisan Quarter, Walcot is well-known for its many antique and independent shops, and also enjoys gorgeous Georgian town houses.

Widcombe

Located south of the city centre and the River Avon, Widcombe offers a plethora of Georgian town houses and independent shops. A stone’s throw away from Bath’s main attractions, Widcombe enjoys a village feel and is close to the scenic gardens of Alexandra Park and Prior Park.

Lansdown

Lansdown is set on the side of a hill north of the city centre. While you can enjoy stunning views of Bath from Lansdown, you’ll first need to climb a steep hill. Key sights to visit in Lansdown include Lansdown Crescent, Somerset Place, Cavendish Crescent and Camden Crescent.
