I would think the children would find the Roman Baths interesting. You might check out the Bizarre Bath tour on the TA website I think children as well as the adults would find this fun. You also might try catching a rugby game. My husband and I crossed the Pulteney Bridge one evening and happened upon a game in progress, the admission was free. I would think some one at your hotel could provide information. There are also boat rides on the Avon as another possibility. Good Luck!

The Egg Theatre puts on productions for children.

And the play area in Royal Victoria Park is very popular.

Or perhaps take a walk along the Kennet & Avon canal tow path to Bathampton. Children will love the canal tunnels by Sydney Gardens.

And there's Bath City Farm in Twerton which is 2 miles from the centre of Bath.

If you have time you could also go to Bristol for the day where there's plenty to keep children entertained, such as M Shed, the SS Great Britain or a boat ride around Bristol Harbour.

We need dates, then we can look in the local paper to see if there are special events. Actually you can do that yourself, their website is http://www.bathchronicle.co.uk/

the Roman Baths are worth a visit, there is a family ticket I believe. They tailor things ffor younger persons as well.

You don't gve their sexes, but girls may be interested in the fashion museum - as an adult bloke even I found it fascinating.
