Just like many other cities, Bath is filled with things that you can do that won’t cost you anything – which is perfect when you are spending a fun-filled weekend away, but making sure that the budget stays reasonable. Just a few options are listed below depending on the sort of thing you enjoy:
Relax in Royal Victoria Park –
Royal Victoria Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the south of England.
