Let's move to Bath
Bath is one of the most popular places to visit in the UK so it’s no surprise to see why people want to move there. There’s the iconic Roman Baths, the Pulteney Bridge and of course the Royal Crescent, all of which are instantly recognisable, but there is so much more that the city offers as a way of life.
Living in Bath is more expensive, on average, compared to the national average, and is also more expensive than its neighbouring city of Bristol. However this doesn’t seem to be putting people off with 31% of residents in Bath ‘young and single’. On average renting a 2 property flat will set you back just over £1,200 per month and purchasing a 3 bed property is likely to cost over £400,000.
In 1987 the city was selected as a World Heritage Site and recognised for its international cultural significance thanks to the 18th century architecture which still sets the feel for Bath even today. If you’re moving somewhere for increased ‘kerb appeal’ and a picturesque city then Bath is certainly the place for you.
As with most cities there’s bound to be an area that suits your requirements the best. From city centre living to areas slightly further out such as Widcombe, Combe Down and Larkhall there’s something to suit everyone. Although the City of Bath may be iconic for a number of reasons there are some real hidden gems in the villages on the outskirts of the city that shouldn’t be missed.
When it comes to things to do in Bath you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you prefer to spend your spare time shopping, there is a great mix of independent boutiques and all the top high street names. Maybe it’s visiting one or two of the many museums and historical sites, such as the must see The Roman Bath’s which, are a just a few steps from busy shops straight into life at the height of the Roman civilisation. Or checking out the local eateries from the ‘be seen’ at The Ivy Brasserie, fine dining at The Royal Crescent Hotel, Bath Brewery’s carnivore feast Graze or household favourites such as the Cosy Club. Maybe it’s just about getting those comfy shoes on and discovering the world renowned architecture, parks and hidden gems such as the National Trust Prior Park Gardens or their Bath skyline walk. Bath has something to offer for everyone.
