Steph and I escaped London for a quick romantic city break the city of Bath in the United Kingdom. Bath was one of the earliest settlements by the Romans in the UK. We decided to head there because we’d heard about its unique mix of traditional architecture within the modern era.
This was actually our first weekend break away as a couple when we started dating. I found a hotel that was located in Bath’s city centre, so were were within walking distance to all of the landmarks.

How can you travel to Bath from London?
We decided to travel from our accommodation in London. There’s a few ways to get to Bath.
This is the most cost-effective option. You can jump on one of the National Express buses and get to Bath on a one-way ticket from £5.90. It’s approximately 3h one-way on the bus.
If you have a vehicle that you own, then it is fairly cost-effective. However, if you decide to hire a car, it’s likely that you will have to spend £200 or more for all of the costs to rent the vehicle.
You can catch the train, which is a 155km journey.
A one-way ticket should cost £20.55.
