Places To Visit Near Bath

As the largest city in Somerset and a World Heritage Site, Bath has much to offer any visitor, whether here on holiday or with some time to spare whilst on business. However, once you get outside the city boundaries, there is even more to see.

Westbury white horse

Without a doubt the most significant prehistoric monument in Britain, Stonehenge is famous the world over. One of the great mysteries of our island history, a visit to the site should be at the top of any Bath itinerary.


Mentioned in William the Conqueror’s Domesday Book, Westbury in nearby Wiltshire is famed for the hill carving of a giant horse across White Hill. Considered one of the oldest such carvings in the country, it can be seen from over 15 miles away.

Wells cathedral


Wells is the smallest city in England. Though famous for its cathedral, this is only one of several beautiful and historically significant ancient buildings in a city steeped deep in heritage.


Perhaps the most famous, certainly among the most well-regarded safari parks in the UK, Longleat is situated in 900 acres of landscaped grounds laid down by Capability Brown himself.

An eclectic mix of the natural world and historical architecture, it’s a great day out for the whole family.



Despite its connections with the annual music festival, Glastonbury is well known as a place of pilgrimage and a spiritual centre for the region. With the famous Glastonbury Tor offering views across Wiltshire, Somerset, and Dorset, as well as the Holy Thorn Tree, Chalice Well, and its historic Abbey, Glastonbury is a peaceful town with much to see and do in it.
