Bath resides in the country of Somerset, England. It became famous for its Roman built baths that were built in 60 AD. It was originally a Roman town and it served as their “spa city”. It also serves as the inspiration for many of Jane Austens novels. She not only visited but lived in the town. It’s a city that is rich in history that dates back to over 2000 years ago. It serves as a day trip for most from London or long weekend. It is the known spa spot but it really is worth staying longer as there is so much to do, see and explore!

Hands down she is my number one favorite person from this city. I was obsessed with Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. Her work has been a great source of inspiration to me as well as who she was. A whole museum is dedicated to her in Bath and you can see the house she lived in.

Bath is on the standard three-pronged G socket like the rest of the UK. It is a standard voltage of 230V and standard frequency is 50Hz. To avoid issues, you will need an adapter AND convertor! I would recommend BESTEK Universal it works in multiple destinations and has USB ports. I have been using it for a while and love it! Now all my ladies out there you will need a DIFFERENT adapter for your curling irons and straighteners. I know its extra money but trust me! I have blown out a few curling irons, it’s worth the extra money and luggage space. Conair has the best adapter for pretty much every country. Check it out here.
One major misconception is that Bath is only a day trip or spa destination. I cannot scream NO loud enough to that! Bath is so much more than a day trip from London. It’s an amazing city rich in history that goes back to over 2000 years ago. It’s a disservice if you only visit for a day. If time allows spend a full weekend and truly embrace all this magical city has to over.

Bath is beautiful year-round but to avoid crowds off season is best. The weather is in the high 40’s to low 50’s from January thru April and then again in late October thru December. Spring and summer months can average in the low 70’s. They do have an amazing Christmas Market that runs from the end of November into December that is worth seeing.

Bath is a very walk friendly town and most of the locations are located near each other. If you want to see the sights neat the city you can source a tour guide or rent a car.
Wifi is available at most locations for free but it will be limited. Depending on the length of your trip either add international to your plan or invest in a portable wifi. A company I use often is SkyRoam, they have very affordable rates!
You have to visit the Roman Baths while in town they are over 2000 years old! While the current structure around them was built in the late 1800’s the thermal baths themselves were a designated spot for Romans to use and visit. While you can no longer swim in the water it is something amazing to see in person.
