3 Great Pubs In Bath

Most people like a little tipple now and then and Bath is certainly full of some great pubs. If you’re staying at a B and B in Bath, you’ll find there are plenty of pubs nearby. Here are 3 of them that are well worth a visit:

Circo Bar and Lounge

The Circo Bar and Lounge is a thoroughly modern yet classy pub that sells a large range of drinks, from beers and lagers to ciders and cocktails. Seating over 270, this cocktail bar can get pretty busy at times but the atmosphere is great and the drinks are reasonably priced.

Hall and Woodhouse

This unique bar is full of style and sophistication, with huge leather sofas and dark wood adorning the walls, the bar offers a classic English feel while serving up a great range of drinks and meals. Found in the centre of Bath in a former auction house, this bar is stunning and well worth a visit.

The Tramshed

This remarkable bar that stands out from the rest is full of colour, light and elegance. The cowhides that adorn some of the seats help to make this bar one of a kind. Go and have a look and see what you think.

Shopping in Bath

As you can probably imagine, Bath has a lot of great shops that are a haven for any shopaholic. From local craft shops to big name clothing stores, Bath has it all.

Known as the ‘Central Area’, the centre of Bath is home to many well-known chain stores that can be found through-out the UK but it’s also home to some lovely smaller jewellery and craft shops that make the shopping experience just that little more special.

There is a great range of shops on Orange Grove but if you want to find some family-run stores you should head to Pulteny Bridge where you can get some truly unique gifts for others and yourself of course!

If you’re shopping for art, then you should think about heading to Bridge Street as you’ll find a few galleries there. If you’re worn out after your busy morning, why not head back to your b and b in Bath for a rest before hitting the shops once more?

If you’re more of a market fan then you should head to Guildhall Market which has been around for 800 years. You can buy just about anything here, from haberdashery and food to jewellery and pet products.
