We’ve pulled together a list of our favourite virtual tours so you can get a taste of Bath, and even start planning your future staycation.
Perfectly placed for a long weekend or mid-week break to take in all the historic city has to offer, is our Apex City of Bath Hotel, and when the time comes, we can’t wait to welcome you.
The Roman Baths
Bath is widely recognised as a wellbeing destination due to its spa heritage. The Roman Baths, which are located right at the heart of the World Heritage site, boast thermal springs, and the Baths still flow with natural hot water. You can ‘visit’ the Baths and The Pump Room in 3D, and find out more about the museum collection and the ruins of the Temple of Sulis Minerva. There’s so much to see, you won’t want to miss out.
Thermae Bath Spa
In contrast to the Roman Baths, the modern and award-winning Thermae Bath Spa is the ultimate place to relax and rewind. As Britain’s only naturally warm spa with mineral-rich waters, it allows you to imagine how the Romans and Celts bathed thousands of years ago. You can take in the beautiful views from the outdoor pool without going out your front door - but we’re sure that once you see it, it’ll be firmly on your to-do list for your future visit.
The Victoria Art Gallery
Another popular historical attraction is Bath’s Victoria Art Gallery – the perfect stop for art enthusiasts. The gallery boasts a collection of more than 1,500 artworks which you can view from your home thanks to the Google street view tour of the collection. With walkthrough videos, you’ll get the perfect opportunity to appreciate the art, with paintings and sculptures on display dating from the 15th century to the present day.
Not far from Bath is the incredible Longleat Safari which is a must for families or animal lovers. Longleat is home to the UK’s original safari park which is now home to over 1,200 animals. Whilst there’s no chance of getting too close to the animals, a 30-minute virtual safari tour could be the perfect solution to ease some boredom during an afternoon in with the kids.
Bath Assembly Rooms
The city is well known for its gorgeous Georgian architecture which is why The Assembly Rooms are a must-see. During the 18th century, it was the centre of the city’s social scene and its grand rooms still host functions and conferences to this day. Here, you’ll be able to view the high-rise ceilings, original crystal chandeliers and stunning architecture for yourself.
The Fashion Museum
Whilst you’re at The Assembly Rooms it would be a mistake not to enter the famous Fashion Museum located just below the elegant rooms. For the moment, you can take in the world-class collection of historic costumes and dresses with this virtual tour. Fashionistas will be desperate to learn more about the evolution of English fashion over the last 400 years.
The American Museum and Gardens
As some of us dream of going further afield, Bath offers the chance to explore a journey through the States at The American Museum and Gardens. With 125 acres of grounds and a breathtaking view across the Limpley Stoke Valley, you’ll be glad to know that there’s a gallery of videos of the beautiful garden and the contents of the museum, so you don’t have to miss out for the moment.
