Sports

Rugby  Bath is very much a ‘rugby town’ and tickets are often available for matches.  There is a lovely family atmosphere on a match day and even if you don’t enjoy watching the game (and many in Bath would find that hard to understand!) you will still enjoy the atmosphere in the town.

Horse Racing  The race course on the top of Lansdown Hill offers a great day out and is easily accessible by bus from the city centre.

Tennis Tennis: there is a free tennis court in Sydney Gardens (just around the corner from Herschel Place) and covered and open courts can be booked both in Royal Victoria Park and at Bath University.

Bath University is a centre of excellence for sport and has world-class facilities, many of which are open for members of the public to use on a casual basis, including the Olympic swimming pool and fitness suites. Click here for details.

There is a multi-screen Odeon and an excellent independent cinema.

Live music can be heard in a number of the town's pubs and restaurants, including The Bell Inn. Jazz is good at the Green Park Brasserie and St James' Wine Vaults. For other suggestions, click here.
