Visiting Bath: 12 'must do' places & activities

Bath is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK and Europe. While there are hundreds of guides to visiting Bath, we've compiled our guide with 12 of the 'must do' places to see and activities to do in Bath. 


Bath Skyline

Bath's skyline trail is one of the most best ways to take in the city. Not only does the walk take in the beauty of Bath from different angles, it also gives visitors a perspective and appreciation for the size and geography of the city. The 10km route can be picked up and multiple points from Bath city centre. Our favourite point would be the view across the city centre from Bathwick Fields halfway up Bathwick Hill. 


Bath by Board

Bath is home to outdoor adventure company, Original Wild. These guys are the specialists in providing epic high quality adventures, experiences & training with one of their most popular outdoor adventures being SUP (stand-up paddle boarding). Take in Bath from the river through the city centre and up to Parade Gardens, the Weir and Pulteney Bridge then onto Bathampton with one of these fantastic tours.

Bath Rugby at The Rec

Rugby in Bath is like sport in no other city. With a rugby ground slap bang in the heart of the city with views back across to Bath Abbey and the city, the atmosphere in Bath town centre is unlike no other on match day. The Recreation Ground is nestled against the River Avon with views stretching up to the green hills that create the valley of the city centre. Possibly the most picturesque sports ground in the world, soak up the atmosphere of a match at the Rec, before soaking up a few drinks in one of Bath's pubs and bars. 


Bath Abbey Tower Tour

If you're not a fan of heights you might be better off enjoying the Abbey interior, however, the Bath Abbey Tower Tour offers outstanding panoramic views across Bath city centre. Make sure you bring your camera! 


Georgian Architecture Tour: Royal Crescent & Circus

Guide yourself slightly out of Bath's shopping streets from the top of Milsom Street and onto Gay Street. From here you'll join the Circus, one of Bath's architectural gems. After taking in the 360 degree triumph of John Wood (both Senior and Junior) head onto Brock Street (first left off the Circus). 250 yards along here and you'll join the world famous Royal Crescent, however,  before hand enjoy the eclectic independent shops and galleries along Margaret's Buildings - especially Bath Old Books shop at the top end of the street. From here you can walk along to the Royal Crescent and take in another of Bath's best know architectures. The green space between the Crescent and Royal Avenue is a fantastic spot in the summer months for picnics, ball games and taking in the views.


Spa Time: Bath Thermae Spa & The Roman Baths

The poster girl of many billboards and advertising spreads for Bath, the Bath Thermae Spa (below and lead image) is relatively new to the city, compared to the Roman Baths (above) whose hot water's have been bubbling away for thousands of years.


Page lead image: Photo Philip Edwards / Bath Thermae Spa. Above image: Photo: Matt Cardy / Bath Thermae Spa

Bath Thermae Spa opened their doors in 2006 and have become one of the top attractions in Bath. Taking in views of Bath Abbey and the surrounding cityscape, the roof top pool is the headline act at Bath Thermae Spa. The Spa also has different spa pools including the open air roof top pool and Minerva Baths, as well as the Aroma Steam Rooms and additional treatments available to visitors. 


Prior Park, National Trust

Slopping gardens, soaring views and a Palladien architecture masterclass, Prior Park is a Bath visitor spot not to miss. Run and managed by the National Trust, the grounds are accessible from the city centre if you're not afraid of a bit of a climb. The grounds are nestled between the steeping Ralph Allen Drive and Widcombe hill side, so the site is no flat to explore. However the tea room and Palladien bridge and ponds are on the flat for those accessing the site from the lower entrance. Prior Park Landscape Gardens link up with the Bath Skyline walk so you can build this into your trail.


Bath Farmers' Market

Hosted in the artisan Green Park Station, the Bath Farmers' Market runs every Saturday from 8am - 1.30pm. Farmers, cheese makers, bread bakers, local cider makers and free from cake bakers all attend this incredibly popular local farmers' market. You'll also find local venison steaks, local apple juice, local butchers and vegetable farmers all pitching up. 


Our Farmers' Breakfast is available on Saturdays with fresh produce sourced from the market that very morning. If you're not into sausage, bacon and eggs, then our Farmers' Market wood fired pizzas from our sister business Bath Pizza Company might take your fancy.


Bath's Canals and Waterways

Bath's most undersold asset, the canals that link the Bath to the hamlets, villages and towns that surround it are ideal for walkers, bikers and those with access to kayaks or barges.

Picking up the canal from Widcombe (a stones thrown from Bath Spa Railway Station) the 3 mile canal stretch to Bathampton to take in the fields and village surroundings as you leave the city is one not to miss - especially in the summer months. The George at Bathampton is the perfect incentive to get on the canal path. Cold ciders on the canal banks at the picturesque bridge at Bathampton is right up there with the more high profile Bath "must do's". Bath Canal is also accessible from Sydney Gardens behind the Holbourne Museum on Great Pulteney Street.


Parade Gardens & Bath Weir on the River Avon

The entrance to Parade Gardens can be found just off Orange Grove next to Bath Abbey - opposite the Garfunkel's restaurant. Another fantastic summer location for sunbathing, playing in the gardens and live music on the bandstand, Parade Gardens also has great views at water level looking up to the weir and Pulteney Bridge. Small entrance fee for non-residents. 


Bath's Hidden Squares and Cobbled Streets

Only five to ten minutes from the busy shopping streets of Bath town centre are a collection of hidden squares and streets. Home to many local residents and some holiday apartments (get your hands on one if you can) these quiet yet central parts of Bath are worth exploring for their architecture and some with antique shops. 

Places to explore - 5 to 10 mins walk from Bath city centre:  

•  St James' Square, St James' Wine Vaults

•  Margaret's Buildings, Catherine Place, Rivers Street & Rivers Street Mews

•  Russell Street & Circus Place

•  Queen Square (more central and often with events and markets)

If you're feeling a little more adventurous - 15 mins walk from Bath city centre:

•  Lansdown Crescent, Somerset Crescent

•  Cavendish Road, Cavendish Crescent

• Norfolk Crescent, Great Stanhope Street


Horse Racing at Bath Racecourse, Lansdown

With a newly built roof terrace boasting impressive views of the course, horse racing in Bath at Lansdown is a wonderful afternoon out just ten minutes drive from Bath city centre. Packed with local ciders and ales racing outside of the city makes for a welcome break from the business of the city centre on weekends. Mid week meets for a more low key affair are certainly worth a visit. 

The Green Park Brasserie is one of Bath’s best known independent restaurants. Based in the heart of Bath, just 5 minutes stroll from the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and Bath's shops, we’ve been serving award winning food and drink for over 25 years.

Looking ahead: Christmas Parties

Looking ahead: Christmas Parties

At this time of year we’re looking ahead to our Christmas Party season here at Green Park Brasserie.

We’ve been tweaking our menu and making a few changes to how we’re going to decorate our restaurant and marquee.

In this blog post we’ve put together our top 6 tips for planning your Christmas party - whether that’s a work evening Christmas Dinner & Disco or a Christmas lunch event with friends or colleagues.

Christmas at Green Park Brasserie

Christmas at Green Park Brasserie

  1. Plan your Christmas Party early

    Bath is well known for being very busy throughout December with Christmas Parties, Hen-dos and visitors to the Bath Christmas Market. Booking a venue before August is recommended by many Christmas Party venues in Bath to avoid disappointment.

  2. Decide what you type of event you want

    There is so much choice in Bath for different style Christmas parties. We’re well known at the Brasserie for our evening dinner and disco parties, but we know that’s not everybody’s cup of tea. We also offer a lunch time 2 and 3 course Christmas party menu for local businesses and groups who are looking for a slower paced, more informal day time Christmas event.

  3. Ask around for dietary requirements

    If you’re in charge of organising your work Christmas party then be sure to cover all bases when it comes to allergen and dietary requirements. Most Christmas party venues are well up to speed with providing suitable alternatives, but there’s nothing worse than not planning for specific dietary needs.

  4. Dress code: what to wear

    This really is down to the type of event you’re planning for your Christmas Party. Bath has such a wide range of options from casual pub dining to formal sit down events with strict dress codes, this really depends on what style of venue you’re looking to book. Must of our Christmas Party events are smart casual with some guests choosing to dress up a little with Christmas dresses and we have seen the occasional full Santa costume over the years!

  5. Payment and dates

    We’ve run Christmas Parties in Bath here at the Brasserie since our first year in business back in 1992. The one piece of advice we suggest is making sure people know when and how much the need to pay by. There’s nothing more awkward and annoying if you are the group organiser having to chase people up. Giving your friends or colleagues set dates to pay early on is very important and can avoid office awkwardness.

  6. Shared or Exclusive?

    If you’re a large group you may wish to have an exclusive use Christmas Party venue to yourselves. Many Christmas Party venues in Bath offer shared parties when there will be groups of other local businesses, organisations or groups of friends making up the whole venue. While other spaces will offer exclusive use, although there is often an extra room hire fee involved.

Summer Specials

Summer Specials

Last month we launched our Summer Specials which have been flying out of the kitchen since mid-June.

Working closely with Bath and the South West’s local farmers and producers we create fresh, seasonal dishes throughout the year and are delighted to see the positive response our summer specials have had over the last few weeks.

Screen Shot 2019-07-18 at 12.11.59.png


“Our team are particularly excited about the new Hake special - the colour and flavours in this dish are very summery and the fish is so light. Fresh from our Cornish seafood supplier we have exceptional sources available. Our creamy white wine, asparagus and dijon sauce complement the texture of the fish brilliantly alongside the other elements of this dish.

— Adam Ponichter, Sous Chef

Our summer specials menu can be viewed below. Please note, our specials are available during our evening service (Tuesday to Saturday, from 5.30pm).

Our Head Chef, Steve Derry has run the Brasserie kitchen for over 14 years. Working closely with Bath’s suppliers, Steve and his team produce our popular Sunday Roast lunch.

Sunday Roast: Beef & Chicken

Regarded as the Rolls Royce choice of the Sunday Toast, our Topside packs fantastic flavour and is our most popular Sunday Roast lunch meat. Sweet and tender, the beef cut is well seasoned with salt and pepper, garlic and rested briefly before being served alongside our Yorkshire pudding and Sunday Roast vegetables. Our Sunday Roast Chicken breast is seasoned lightly with lemon juice, salt and pepper and white wine before being seared on our grill and then cooked through in the oven. Perfect with our seasonal vegetables our Sunday Roast chicken is very popular through the summer months.

Sunday Roast Sides & Seasonal Vegetables

We take roast potatoes very seriously - often the make or break of a Sunday Roast our chefs expertly prepare our potatoes with seasoning, oil and herbs - but lightly enough not to draw attention away from the roast chicken or roast beef. Our carrots are honey glazed and packed with flavour from their thyme, garlic and salt and pepper seasoning.

Sunday Roast Lunch runs from 12-2.45pm every Sunday throughout the year at Green Park Brasserie, Bath. Vegan, Dairy Free and Gluten Free dishes available. Booking recommended.

We’ve also achieved some personal milestones along the way: the Brasserie team earned a recommendation in The Times, Bath Pizza Co competed at The European Pizza Chef of the Year Finals and Bath Function Rooms has this past year become one of Bath’s most popular event spaces for parties, dinners, weddings and businesses events.

Here, we look back from January through to December at some of the year’s highlights.

January: Bath Pizza Co on Tour


The Brasserie’s Bath Pizza Co team took a trip to Napoli to explore pizza culture at the start of the year. Visiting some of the world’s most popular pizzerias and inspiring new ideas, the team brought back some brilliant insight from the home of pizza to set them up for a very busy year with new menu favourites.

February: Finalists & Olympic Partnership

2018 saw the Brasserie nominated for a number of awards and was also shortlisted for the UK’s most romantic restaurant (for the second year running). Having claimed the title in 2017 we were also finalists at the Bath Life Awards (Best Restaurant in Bath), the Crumbs Awards (Best Casual Dining Restaurant) and featured in The Bath Magazine’s ‘Delicious Guide.’

A huge thank you to our customers who recommended us for these prestigious awards.

February also saw a new partnership for Bath Pizza Co with local Olympian, Ben Fletcher, a partnership that would see the launch of a charity campaign with Bath Mind later in the year. The campaign has raised funds and awareness of the local mental health charity with an estimated 20,000 customers reading about Bath Mind on the Bath Pizza Co menu.

March: Spring Menu


Despite the heavy snowfall of early March, the kitchen shifted into Spring menu mode, refreshing the Brasserie’s main menu with new dishes and seasonal twists on some of our most popular dishes.

Continuing to work closely with our farmers and producers in Bath and the South West, the Brasserie chefs launched some of our most popular dishes to date, including our Pan Fried Barbary Duck dish and our Spinach, Mint & Parsley Falafel.

We also launched one of our most popular Brasserie special desserts, a Wild Elderflower & Raspberry Jelly with a Raspberry Mascarpone.

April: kicking off Summer Sessions


Alfresco live music sessions launched at Bath Pizza Co with Bath’s Isobel Holly kicking off the 5 month long season. Every Thursday Bath Pizza Co welcomed a number of acoustic musicians and bands alongside some of the Brasserie’s established jazz, swing and funk groups.

The live music Thursday evenings rolled into Festival Season with some of Bath’s best events coming to play at Green Park Brasserie and Bath Pizza Co.

May: Festival Season in full swing


Festival season kicked off in full swing with Bath Festivals’ Party in the City coming to Green Park Station. With live music and performances from 6.30pm through to 1am we had one of our most popular evenings of the year with live music, swing dancing and a whole host of Bath and Bristol bands playing through the night.

Thank you to all who made it one of the most memorable nights in recent memory. We also hosted part of the Jane Austen Festival with events at Bath Function Rooms, directly above our restaurant.

June: keeping it local


The Brasserie chefs took a trip to one of our longest standing suppliers - Hugh and Celia at Newton Farm in Newton St. Loe. Just 3 miles from our kitchen High and Celia have been producing outstanding steak cuts for our menu for years. We’re looking forward to meeting more farmers and producers in 2019.

With festival season ongoing, we also welcomed the Bath Fringe Festival and more live music groups as we entered into one of the longest and hottest summers in recent years.

July: Visually celebrating the best of Bath and the South West


We welcomed local Bath photographer James Markham to exhibit here at the Brasserie. Showcasing the best of his work in Bath and the South West region, James’ work is highly revered and presents some of the areas most notable landscapes in stunning form. Prints are available to purchase online (jamesmarkham.org/somerset).

August: Wedding season and the Prosecco keeps flowing


We hosted many weddings over the May to September period at our function rooms in Bath, Bath Function Rooms. We were delighted to meet many wonderful couples and help make their day special here at Green Park in Bath.

In addition, festival season kicked on with the Bath Folk Festival hosting another busy month of live music events and free flowing prosecco and beers during a hot summer.

September: more music and partnering with the University of Bath


September saw the continuation on our alfresco live music, plus we partnered up with the University of Bath’s Music Society to host live music sessions across the year. The society are a very talented group of musicians playing a wide breadth of styles and we’re looking forward to seeing more of their performances in 2019.

October: TV appearances, heaters & Brooklyn


You might have caught us on Channel 5’s TV series Britain’s Lost Railways. We were chuffed to be on the series charting the UK’s old rail networks as the producers visited Green Park Station (more on the history of Green Park Station here).

We also added a fantastic beer to the Brasserie bar: Brooklyn Lager. The American Amber Lager picked up Gold at the 2018 World Beer Cup and is going down very well.

Our patio heaters arrived and were installed towards the end of the month. The powerful heaters will offer our alfresco and Bath Pizza Co customers a cosy environment through the Autumn and Winter months.

November: Bath Pizza Co compete at the European Pizza Chef of the Year Finals

Screen Shot 2018-12-11 at 16.26.42.png

Bath Pizza Co head chef Jonah was selected to attend the The European Pizza Chef of the Year Finals. Competing against 30 of Europe’s best pizza chefs, the Bath Pizza Co team took a trip to London for the event and narrowly missed out on claiming the title. We hope to be back next year!

December: ‘tis the season


Christmas party season is currently in full swing and we’re looking forward to a cracking New Year’s Eve party to see in 2019. Lastly, we’ve picked up some wonderful reviews over the years but were over the moon to be recommended by The Sunday Times midway through the month. Thank you to all our wonderful team and customers who helped us achieve this accolade.

Here’s to 2019!

Andrew Peters, Green Park Brasserie

Green Park Brasserie Owner, Andrew Peters announced as “Business Person/ Entrepreneur of the Year” finalist at Bath Business Awards 2018.

We’re delighted that owner, Andrew has been recognised for his work in Bath.

Now in their 7th year, the Bath Chronicle Business Awards celebrate business success across the city and surrounding areas. Andrew has been shortlisted alongside 3 others in the city and was surprised to make the finals.

Andrew said: “It’s an honour to be shortlisted for the awards. We feel we’ve been part of a positive few years for the city on our side of town as Bath has grown. Of course, a lot has changed since I first took on the business in 1992 - the city has developed, dining preferences shifted - and the nature of our business has had to adapt with it. As a Bathonian, it' will be wonderful to celebrate with many other Bath businesses at the awards evening.

The Brasserie has become known for its quality food, regular live music and unique setting in the old train station at Green Park, Bath. Over the years the business has picked up glowing reviews and comments from the likes of The Guardian, AOL Travel, Culture Trip and others.

With a unique venue and menu offering, the Brasserie has become a favourite independent restaurant for Bath locals and visitors alike, with a real focus on local produce.

Andrew added: “We’re still proud to support Bath farmers and producers, sourcing some fantastic food and drink from the area, especially the Bath Farmers’ Market (the UK’s very first) which is right on our doorstep every Saturday.”

We’ve continued to grow and taken on new parts of the business with Bath Function Rooms and Bath Pizza Co in recent years too. We’re looking forward to the awards evening next month and celebrating the wonderful businesses in Bath.

Andrew is shortlisted along with David Waldren (The Cake Architect), Victoria Heath (Morgan Maskall Ltd) and Chris Butt (Cognisess). Good luck to all involved with the awards evening!
