Discover Car Hire in Bath
Bath, situated to the west of London and not far from Bristol, is located on the banks of the River Avon, and surrounded by Somerset's rolling green hills. This incredible city was originally built by the Romans around the natural hot springs in the first century AD, and is today one of the oldest and most magnificent cities in England. The city attracts over 4 million visitors per year, and for good reason! A beautiful city, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in it's entirety.
The most famous attraction is arguably the Roman Baths, where you’ll see the temple that was built around the natural hot water springs, as well as the beautifully preserved ruins and treasures from Roman times. See why Bath has been designated a World Heritage Site and witness some of the fine architectural sites. Visit the Bath Abbey, built in 1499 in spectacular medieval tradition, the Royal Crescent with its honey coloured terraces and the Circus and Pulteney Bridge. Your car rental will take you to the Jane Austin Centre, the city’s most famous resident, as well as all the other fabulous museums and galleries.
If you can pull yourself away from the beauty of Bath, take a day trip to nearby Stonehenge. Bristol is only a short thirty minutes drive away, and would make a wonderful day out. Stop along the way at Berkeley Castle, the 840 year old build complete with dungeon, staterooms and original furniture. Take a tour of the surrounding countryside and stop in at some of the picturesque towns and villages along the way, including Bradford-upon-Avon, and pick up some hearty pub-grub in country towns surrounding Bath.
