if you are into pampering then the thermae spa is fab. whole day spa, open air roof top pool, treatments etc. afternoon high tea in the pump room (book it gets really busy!) we liked the costume museum and walking up the hill to royal parade. fun mini golf course there too. plus of course the baths and museum bits. its a good city for pottering in and there are some good places to eat too.

Go to Sotto Sotto to eat! Also, if you want a tour of everything there's one of the hop on/hop off City tour buses. Thermae Spa is fab is that's your thing. Will you have a car? There's some NT places nearby worth seeing -Dyrham Park and Lacock.

Have Bath got a tourist information board, they probably have a website with things to see and do there

I was going to say sleep, my favourite place to have a bit of peace, cocooned in warmth.

In fact, I'm still going to say sleep.

If you're a reader then one of my favourite bookstores ever is there, www.mrbsemporium.com/. You can book a reading spa, where you sit with cake and talk books and have books recommended for you. Such a lovely place.

The thermae bath spa twilight experience is great. Book in. Think it's £30. You go at 5pm. Get dinner included. Then have two hours in the pools and steam rooms which draw their water from the ancient roman mineral water and is naturally heated by the earth. Plenty of couples/ men in their. All ages/sizes. The rooftop pool is gorgeous looking over bath lovely views. Very enjoyable few hours.
Must do a tour of the actual Roman baths. Go anytime. You buy an audio tour. Gorgeous and fascinating.
Walk up to the Circle and the Crescent, lovely park to walk in there too.
There is a nice Jane Austen museum, your guide know lots- would say more interesting if you have read at least one Austen book but interesting anyway.
Go to Sally Lunns to sample a famous Sally Lunns bath buns, oldest house in bath. Can have dinner here too.

Roman Baths
Thermae Bath Spa
Victoria Art Gallery
Number 1 Royal Crescent
Victoria Park

We live nearby and when we had visitors recently we downloaded a Bath Murder Mystery Trail to do with them - the 'murder mystery' is rubbish but it's a good way to get you to walk between all the major tourist attractions. The Bizarre Bath Comedy Walk in the evening is supposed to be good but I haven't tried it.

I've never been to Sally Lunn's as there's always a massive queue outside so I personally wouldn't bother with that. There are masses of good places to eat in Bath.

Shopping. Bath has lots of alleys and small streets with interesting shops.

You'll have a great time.
