Where should I go shopping?
Bath has everything you need if you fancy a bit of retail therapy because it's got all of the big names but plenty of quirky, independent retailers too. Artisan Quarter and Southgate are the best spots for retail therapy.
Where are the best music and dance venues?
Bath has a variety of music venues whether you want local bands, national theatre tours or just want to watch the latest movies. The Forum is great for live music, live shows at Theatre Royal are amazing and the Little Theatre is the best cinema in town!
What are the best clubs and bars?
For a small(ish) place, Bath has got some great places for you to party the night away, it just depends on what you're looking for. Lamb & Lion has the cheapest pint in town but of course, every good student city has a Spoons - Prince of Wessex is Bath's. Nightclubs? ZeroZero is the biggest (and best) and Revolution on George Street is great too.
