What's On in Bath this July?
01 July 2018
Bath is at its very best in summertime; visitors and local residents alike can bask in the warmer weather as they meander through the streets, the sunshine giving the buildings an even deeper honey glow than usual. It’s also the best time of year to explore some of Bath’s glorious walks - the Bath Skyline walk is popular, or you can head to Prior Park for stunning views over the city. Here’s a round up of things you can enjoy in Bath this summer...

GO BOATING IN THE SUNSHINE
When the weather is warm there is no better way to explore a city than by boat. The River Avon and the Kennet & Avon Canal both run right through Bath, so why not hop on a cruise, hire a rowing boat or even a kayak, and see the beautiful city from the water. https://visitbath.co.uk/things-to-do/tours-sightseeing/boat-tours/
PRIOR PARK GARDEN TOURS
Prior Park is a beautiful National Trust property. This dramatic yet intimate eighteenth-century landscape garden sits in a beautiful valley. The garden was created by well-known Bath entrepreneur and philanthropist Ralph Allen, with advice from the poet Alexander Pope, and landscape architect Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. If you want to make the most of your visit, join one of the free and informative guided tours, available every Tuesday and Thursday at 11:30am.

TORCHLIT SUMMER EVENINGS AT THE ROMAN BATHS - until 31st August
If you haven’t yet visited the Roman Baths, make your first trip by torchlight; you’ll remember it forever. Until the end of August the site is open until 10.00pm every evening (last entry 9.00pm). As darkness falls, the ruins of this vast Roman building are an awesome sight. You can walk on 2000-year-old pavements lit by flickering torchlight, creating a truly magical and evocative atmosphere. With its steaming waters and Roman artefacts this is an unforgettable and unique experience.
THE AMERICAN MUSEUM: SIDE BY SIDE EXHIBITION
Perched atop a hill just outside Bath, The American Museum is a treasure trove of American artefacts, and has beautiful rolling gardens in which to relax and picnic. This year’s exhibition is ‘Side By Side: America and World War I.’ 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of America’s first major military engagement in the Great War 1914 – 1918. https://americanmuseum.org/
