Another question re Bath

We are travelling from Stonehenge to Stratford Upon Avon and wanted to stopover in Bath but given the comments about parking and how busy it is, do you think it is worth the hassle. Is there somewhere outside of Bath that would be less busy and we could stay overnight and get into Bath by bus or train?

Stay in a B&B in Bath for car parking visitbath.co.uk/accommodation/bed-and-breakf…

Visiting Stonehenge, then do visit beautiful Salisbury.

I seem to manage perfectly well driving AROUND the outskirts of Bath (A4 and A36). The actual square mile (max) of the City centre is best avoided thanks to the number of one-way streets and traffic lights and general congestion. Just outside the immediate centre can be a bit hilly (which might bother drivers used to flatter terrains).

There are plenty of B&B's within a 5-10 minute walk which either have parking or can give you a "permit" to park on the street [worth checking before you book because the council has recently changed how this works].

If you decided that you would rather stay out of town you might like Lacock (National Trust village near Chippenham- you could get the train or bus in from Chippenham) or Bradford on Avon (train probably easiest). Quite a few of the country inns will have accommodation too.

Have a look and then perhaps ask on the Bath Forum (lots of locals don't bother checking the England Forum very often).
