“This recommendation is all about getting you out of the heavily-trodden tourist routes in favour of some greenery. Follow Pultney Street out of town towards the Holbourne Museum. The cafe is simple, coffee is great. A lovely place to spend an hour taking in some natural beauty. ”

“The Pump Room was where high society used to go for afternoon tea and to be seen about town. A favourite haunt of Jane herself, it also features in Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. The Pump Room Restaurant today is still a hugely popular place for afternoon tea or lunch. You can also have a glass of Bath’s very own thermal waters straight from the fountain, for which many visitors travel from afar to benefit from its many healing properties.”
