1st time visiting Bath 14:16 - May 29 with 3291 viewskingsburyR

I'm treating the wife to a weekend in Bath for our Anniversary.

Can always rely on you knowledgeable lot for what best to do.

Any must see spots in a short time frame?

Cheers

The Baths
Cathedral
The Royal Crescent
Pulteney Bridge

They are probably the main things to get done.

Book somewhere for dinner, it can be an issue rocking up and getting a table in decent restaurants.

If she likes this kind of thing the two-hour welcome spa session would be lovely It's got a roof-top pool https://www.thermaebathspa.com/spa-sessions-new-royal-bath.

If you're going this Saturday, the best thing to do is go see Bath Rugby's semi final victory over Sale... hopefully. (But there probably aren't any spare tix.)

Bath is a lovely place to visit.
The Pig- near Bath is a great restaurant in the countryside worth checking out plus its a nice place to stay if you haven't already booked something.
Also this quirky cocktail bar which was recommended to me by a fellow poster is defo worth checking out if you want something a bit different in the evening. Tucked away in the vaults below. https://www.opiumbars.com/

Occasional providers of half decent House music.

I normally detest anywhere that doesn't have a W postcode but quite like Bath.

If the weather's good, the Boathouse on the river or the Wheatsheaf in Combe Hay (10min drive) are great spots to sit out. More restaurants than pubs but worth travelling to for the food.

If you're partial to a spot of brunch, I'd highly recommend the Cosy Club. If you get there early you'll get a table on the terrace.

If she…or you..like Jane Austen the Jane Austen centre is good. You can pick up a map there for a walking tour linked to Jane.

All of the above and also Sally Lunn's for a traditional Bath bun. Gets very busy (and a bit touristy) at peak times but worth a visit.

Victoria Falls Adventure Golf - great outdoor crazy golf course.

Bath Abbey

San Francisco Fudge Company

The Roman Spa

I live in Bath too. A lot of the most popular places to go have already been covered in previous replies and the good thing is it's a small city so I'd recommend you just talk a walk around the city centre and you'll see a lot of the sights, like:

Roman Baths
The Abbey
The weir near Pulteney Bridge
Pulteney Bridge (one of only 4 bridges in the world with shops on it I believe)
Great Pulteney Street
The Circus
The Royal Crescent and Victoria Park

There are loads of places to eat and drink so just depends on what you fancy. It does get busy with visitors especially in the summer so it is best to book restaurants.

Never been to Edesia because I think it is fairly new.
Sotto Sotto is one of the best Italian's I've been to, so should be good if you can get in.
Scallop Shell is good for fish and seafood.
The Mint Room is an excellent Indian but is a few minutes away from the centre.
Noya's Kitchen for Vietnamese

Most pubs and bars in the centre are fine but again can get very busy at the weekends. If you want to visit two of the smallest pubs in the country, go to Coeur De Lion and The Old Green Tree.

Here is a notable Bath-based company you might like to visit:

I only know this because I know someone who lives over the road from their warehouse, you can see the company sign from his kitchen window.

A perfect segue into one of the transfer window's most iconic moments.

Dyrham Park, where they filmed most of Remains of the day, is just a short bus ride away, especially if you are on the lookout for a retirement property.

Depending on how much time you have and whether you like a walk, a few locals have recommended this to me over the years: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/bath-bristol/bath-skyline/bath-skyline-wa

I would second The Raven, tiny, but a great pub.

I grew up in Trowbridge about 10 miles from Bath, went there often.
