Everyone knows about the city of Bath’s Victoria Art Gallery, iconic Roman Baths, and its fantastic Christmas markets. However, there are a lot of hidden gems in the city, which is a World Heritage Site, that go largely unnoticed by a great many people who visit it.
If you’re looking to do something a bit different in Bath this year, take a look at the following interesting and unusual suggestions we have put together:
Embarking on a hot air balloon ride in Bath has to be one of the most exciting things to do in the city. Soaring high above the other tourists, you will be able to see the city’s most impressive sites, such as the River Avon and Bath Abbey, which dates from the 7th Century, in a completely different light.
Beazer Garden Maze is a wonderful family attraction. Running alongside the River Bath, you will find the unique garden labyrinth, which was constructed out of paving stones and has a stunning mosaic middle. Pay it a visit and you’ll have endless fun tracing its intricate design.
Living up to its name, Sham Castle, despite being only 300 years old, features a distinct fake medieval façade and is situated on a real full-size golf course. If you are into historical curiosities, it is well worth a visit. The unusual castle was built to make the view from a neighbouring estate more aesthetically pleasing.
