Bath Tourist Information Office
Are you new to Bath? Need a place to stay during your visit to the area? If you need something from Bath, chances are the folk at the Tourist Centre will be able to advise. Copies of their extensive brochure of accommodation, interest points, maps and other area information will be sent to you free on request. They can also book accommodation for you in the area, though sometimes it's faster and easier to try doing this yourself. The foyer has heaps of leaflets about local museums and events, and a small shop sells postcards and books featuring Bath and the surrounding areas. There are plans to introduce a network of 'meeters and greeters' who will provide a mobile service for visitors to the city. Watch this space.
Bath is beautiful, but we would never visit again. I agree with previous reviewers, the one-way system is mad and does not make any sense. In addition the signage is awful and we too got ripped of by Bath Council by being funneled into a bus lane without us realizing. This resulted in a £30 fine being sent to our home.This is obliviously how they make their money. Beware Bath, your not the only city and people will not put up with this unfair treatment. I would hope to get a response from the Tourist Board. By the way we are contesting this. They've upset the wrong people, we are web designers and members of every social network. My next email is to Top Gear !!!!!!
Driving through Bath is very stressful not helped by inadequate, insufficient and unobvious signage. Visitors have little chance of successfully getting from A to B without driving round and round in endless circles and the council is capitalizing on this by channelling traffic into traps eg bus gates to catch on average 171 unsuspecting motorists a day, to boost their revenue. I am one of those 171 and I was caught twice in the same day. I have paid my fines but will be reluctant to revisit Bath in a hurry. if you are thinking of visiting Bath and taking the car, think twice and take the bus.
The Tourist Information Office may well be excellent, but it is impossible to know since neither the phone number given by Directory Enquiries, nor the one on this web site actually connects you to anything.
This does seem most unfortunate, to say the least.
Situated directly behind the Holbourne Museum in Bathwick, these formal city gardens are ideally placed for a stroll before heading
back into the city center. Imaginative flower beds and gracious trees line the walkways and access to the canal ...
