Did you know one of the best ways to explore Bath [which is arguably one of England’s most beautiful cities by the way] is aboard the City Sightseeing Bath hop-on hop-off open top bus tour?
Jumping aboard an open top bus in any city – especially one that you have never visited before – is always a good idea I believe. In most cases they offer great value for money and will give you a fairly quick introduction to the city. Ideal if you are short of time or just want to get your bearings before exploring more either on foot or by sightseeing bus.
Tickets offer exceptional sightseeing value!
The City Sightseeing Bath tour is no exception! Buying a ticket – £14.00* for adults [that’s around €18 or $20] allows you to hop on and off as many times as you like during the ticket time period which in this case is 24 hours. The tour has two different tours or loops with a total of 38 bus stops meaning you can catch all of Bath’s top spots easily over 24 hours. You might even just want to jump off and grab a coffee or some lunch and relax a bit before continuing with the tour and depending on where you might be staying you can even sometimes use a sightseeing tour as a kind of ‘shuttle’ between your hotel and the centre – just an idea?
The two different tours – aptly named the ‘City‘ tour and the ‘Skyline‘ tour have an extensive list of places worth seeing or even visiting. The City tour takes you to the Roman Thermal Spa Complex plus all the major museums plus you’ll never be far away from the best shopping locations either. The 21 stop Skyline tour – which you can board at the main railway station and depending on how you arrive in the City could be your best starting point? – takes you away from the main central hub and explores some of the lush green areas of the City plus allowing access to some other great attractions – like the American Museum and Bath University – also see some of the best views and photo opportunities the City has to offer too! Buying a City Sightseeing Bath tickets also gives you discounts to some of top attractions like 10% off Roman Baths entry tickets, 10% Off Museum Of Bath Architecture entry tickets or 2 for 1 at the American Museum.
Two different tour routes with over 35 bus stops to jump on and off.
Whilst on any of the tours you will be treated to an in-depth commentary from an English speaking professional guide. But that’s not all – each low floor wheelchair easy access open top bus has an additional 10 language commentary system on-board allowing international visitors to listen in their own language [currently English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese languages are available].
