A city break in Bath, one of the most beautiful city breaks you'll have.Bath

If you're looking for a picturesque, quintessentially English city escape, Bath, Somerset is up there as being the best one you can choose. Every street is full of character and lined with golden Bath-stone buildings, it is a great alternative to London offering a more compact and arguably more beautiful escape. The city has been spoilt very little, with modern architecture being well blended in, and therefore is seamlessly stunning and has a time warp feel about it. Being full of historic sites, special architecture, both quirky independent and high street shops galore, cafes, pubs and restaurants, the nearby countryside and attractions (Longleat Safari Park), it has all the makings of a great weekend away for a couple or a family. So a city break in Bath is more than worth your while.

The must does within the city, apart from walking around absorbing the beauty and architecture, are the famous 60 AD Roman baths dedicated to the roman goddess Sulis, Bath Abbey, the Pulteney Bridge, Jane Austen's house, the Circle and Royal Crescent. The city is also famous for its theatres, art and music, so be sure to check what is on during your visit. There are quite a few stunning public parks and gardens within walking distance that provide the perfect resting place for a stroll or rest during a summer's day.

A city break in Bath provides a great day's shopping in the city centre. And make sure you explore all the little side streets for some little independent shops and their unique wares. At the night, there's a vibrant atmosphere in pubs and restaurants for any type of dinner at any price and the night life is great too. For foodies out there, try the local Bath Chap (available from the local covered market), Sally Lynn buns, which are similar to a teacake and the smaller Bath buns. The local ales are also worth a taste.

Bath is easily accessible from the M5 and is stunning at any time of year, but as with any city trip in the UK, summer is the best time to go.
