Bath’s businesses need your support more than ever. As the city reopens its doors, we encourage you to support Bath’s businesses by shopping local.
Although Bath’s businesses are excited to be back, don’t forget that as businesses return from a long period of being away, some members of staff may be anxious, and things may take a bit longer than usual.
If you are returning to the city, please ensure you follow current government guidelines, keep your distance and stay safe.
Many of the city’s attractions, spas, shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés have now reopened with safety precautions and social distancing measures in place.
Whether you’re ready and raring to go, or want to research before your trip, we have some great suggestions to help you plan a safe and enjoyable visit.
BATH IN BLOOM TRAIL
This summer, Bath is welcoming people back with a floral flourish, as the city is entered into the annual South West in Bloom competition.
This year, there are plenty of bright blooms to discover around the city, with displays in Royal Victoria Park, Walcot Street, SouthGate Bath, Milsom Street and Milsom Place, Union Street, Upper Borough Walls and many more city spots.
You can take your very own floral tour of the city, just as the South West in Bloom judges have done, using our interactive Bath in Bloom map.
