There is so much to see and explore in Bath, from scenic riverside paths to all those little streets, each different, but all steeped in history and beautiful architecture.

Sometimes it’s best just to start cycling and see where your curiosity takes you, but if you’d prefer to plan your route to make the most of your rental, here is some inspiration to get you going:


Why not plan your own self-guided cycling tour of the city. Or hop from one nextbike station to the next exploring the Best of Bath.

All of these ‘must see’ attractions are within 5 minutes walk of a nextbike station.


The Roman Baths

Constructed in 70AD, the Roman Baths is one of the best preserved Roman ruins in the world. Wander around the ancient heated chambers and see the original bathing place where 1,170,000 litres of steaming spring water reaching 46 °C still fills the site every single day.


The Circus

One of the jewels in Bath’s UNESCO World Heritage Site crown, The Circus is another architectural marvel from John Wood the Elder. Three segments of crescents make for a spectacularly unique experience as you enter the space which forms an almost complete ring of town houses with a great tree at the centre.


The Holburne Museum

At the end of the grand straight vista of Great Pulteney Street you will find the magnificent former hotel which is now home to a collection including bronzes, porcelain and paintings by the likes of Stubbs and Gainsborough. The impressive grounds also makes a great place for a coffee stop.


Bath Abbey

(website) 1 min walk from Orange Grove station

The last of the great medieval churches in England, the awesome Bath Abbey is full of magnificent stained glass windows, huge columns and ceilings that will leave your neck sore from looking up. It’s also still a fully operational church with regular services.


The Royal Crescent

(website) 5 mins walk from Charlotte Street Car Park station

Built between 1767 and 1774 and designed by John Wood the Younger, The Royal Crescent is said to be the best example of Georgian architecture in the country. The row of 30 sweeping terraces is home to the Royal Crescent Hotel and No. 1 Royal Crescent Museum.


Pulteney Bridge

(website) 2 min walk from Orange Grove station

This is one of only 4 bridges in the world with shops on either side of it for the full length. In fact it’s difficult to tell that you are even on a bridge when you cross which is why it is best viewed from the Parade Gardens park.
