Bath is considered to be one of the most culturally rich and attractive cities in the UK. Arranging car hire the area not only allows you to get around easily, it also lets you explore more of glorious Somerset and England’s south-west.

If you opt for the convenience of your own hired car, the city of Bath becomes the perfect base for a treasured touring holiday of Great Britain...

From the elegant architecture of Bath Spa University and the mineralised warm waters of the Thermae Bath Spa to the 18th-century Bath Assembly Rooms, this is a city where you can truly relax and bask in the beauty of the surroundings. As its name suggests, Bath is famous for its ancient bathing complexes. The Roman Spa dates back to the 5th century and the ruins are well preserved and a spectacular sight.

Famed for its Georgian architecture, the city has more than 5,000 listed buildings. You can take a stroll along Pulteney Bridge or drive over to the Theatre Royal, which lies just behind the so-called Circus, a stunning Georgian Grade I listed building whose construction began in 1754. Not too far away is another row of the city's most famous houses, the Royal Crescent, designed by John Wood. Bath is recognised as a World Heritage Site, the award acknowledging its exceptional beauty and historical and cultural significance.

Book your hire car in advance to save money and choose where you would like to collect your rental; there are handy locations in the downtown area of Bath. To find the best price, use TravelSupermarket's search tool.
