Bath in General
Advantages: Many attractions free or quite cheap
Disadvantages: Can get very crowded, particularly from lunchtime onwards
I have just returned from a 3 night break in Bath, which we found was plenty long enough to get out of it what you wanted.
Bath really is a beautiful city and worth a visit to see the beautiful Georgian buildings, which are absolutely beautiful when the sun shines on them.
No trip to Bath would be complete without a visit to the Roman baths. They are expensive to get into, but well worth the cost. You are completely free to wander around at your own pace and spend as much time there as you would like.
The Bath abbey is also worth a visit. A £2 entry donation is appreciated but by no means complusory. Again you are free to stay as long as you'd like.
We'd also very much recommend the Bizzare Bath comedy walk. This was the highlight of our visit and worth loads more than the £8 we paid to join!! The free Bath walking tour put on by the council is also very good and a perfect thing to do on your first morning to get an insider view of the city.
Don't bother with the open top buses. They were quite expensive and didn't tell us anything that we hadn't already learnt from the free walking tour!
Summary: See the main attractions early in the day.
