Bath is a small city of fewer than 100,000 people but rests 11 miles east of Bristol and 97 miles west of London, which makes this city a rather unique coliving space to call your new hub and home base. With all the cultural heritage it's no wonder that bath became a world heritage site in 1987. Theatres, museums and other cultural and sporting venues have helped make it a major center for tourism. There are over 3 million visitors a year and oftentimes many of them decide to stay, having fallen in love with its charm.
Bath is home to many of the UK’s world-class museums which make a great afternoon out. Even though this is a small city, you can still find everything from a local cheap eatery to upscale dining in town too. There is an abundant amount of pubs open until early in the morning and plenty of five-star restaurants to eat at if you're looking for a nice evening out on the town. If you can’t find what you're looking for in Bath, less than 15 minutes away is the city of Bristol, so you really do have everything you could need within a short distance.
Because of the size of the city, there is no major airport here, but that's not a problem as Bristol International Airport is nearby and London is a quick train ride away too. These two major airports will get you anywhere in the world you need to go. There is not much public transport here in Bath so your best bet may be to invest in a car. There is a train system and a small bus system available here but they're not going to be able to get you everywhere.
