Local Attractions

Discover Bath with the help of the friendly staff at the Francis Hotel Bath - MGallery by Sofitel. The thriving city lies conveniently just outside the hotel’s front door. This historic city was once a thriving spa town in Roman times and, thanks to John Wood, became a fashionable resort for English high society in the late-18th century. Explore the past or take in the eclectic present through the city’s vibrant shopping, delectable gastronomy, festivals, art galleries, and sports at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Roman Baths
The Roman Baths of Bath are one of the city’s most visited cultural attractions. These historical baths date back to the Roman time of 60-70 A.D. and have been gradually built upon over generations. Take a tour and discover the fascinating history of this ancient marvel.

Number One Royal Crescent
This building, by architect John Wood the Younger, is a unique example of Georgian architecture that now acts as a museum. Guests can enter this museum and see a fully decorated Georgian townhome in the celebrated historical neighborhood of the Royal Crescent.

The Circus
Another one of Bath's most visited attractions, the Circus is a circular street of large Georgian townhomes that were built and designed by Bath architect John Wood the Elder. The layout of the buildings was a part of John Wood the Elder’s plan to recreate a classical Palladian city, and has many of its details inspired by Stonehenge.

Thermae Spa
The Thermae Spa may be housed in modern buildings, but this Bath attraction has been used by settlers of the area for hundreds of years. Visitors can relax and enjoy soothing spa treatments and bathe in the only naturally hot, mineral-rich spring waters in the United Kingdom.

The Grand Pump Room
Located in the Abbey Church Yard, guests of Bath may visit this exciting attraction to taste the mineral-rich waters from the hot springs of Bath, which were once believed to have healing properties. The current building was finished in 1799, and it became popular among the high society of Jane Austen’s time, though the site has been a traditional meeting place since the Roman era.

Bath Abbey
Officially the Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, the Bath Abbey is a notable gothic cathedral that was first founded in the 7th century adjacent to the city’s Roman Baths. With a cruciform floorplan, vaulted ceilings, and flying buttresses, the Bath Abbey is one of the largest examples of Perpendicular Gothic architecture. Visitors can tour the Abbey, visit the heritage museum, and enjoy concerts in this fantastic historic church.

Fashion Museum
Housed in the Assembly Rooms, this collection of fashionable dress from the late-16th century to present day was started by fashion historian Doris Langley Moore. Visitors can take in the history of fashionable clothing from a pair of 17th century gloves to the cutting edge of modern style.

Jane Austen Centre
Dedicated to the life of the famed romance author Jane Austen, the Jane Austen Centre provides exhibitions and reenactments to help visitors achieve a deeper knowledge of the Regency period. Jane Austen lived in Bath from 1801-1806, and the inspiration of the city shows in her novels.
