Quick rundown for 2024
Planning a trip and looking for what’s up and coming in Bath? Below are the hottest picks and happenings for all sorts of travelers to get your holiday plans rolling:

  • Events/Festivals: If a log cabin retreat is part of your plan for a lovey-dovey getaway, complement it with a matching regency romance experience at The Jane Austen Festival. The festivities will run from September 13 to September 22, 2024. Rent a costume and join the walks, mingling with fellow lovers of period romances, before escaping to the intimacy of your log cabin, much like your beloved heroes and heroines. If you're planning to come back in 2025, expect an extra special anniversary because The Jane Austen Festival will also be celebrating 250 years of the author's legacy.
  • Attractions: Take a memorable walk along the lush gardens of The Newt in Somerset, as they opened a new area in spring, 2024. The Four Seasons Garden has themed sections following spring, summer, autumn, and winter, creating an attraction that will be a feast for the eyes year-round.
  • Arts and Culture: If you're planning to treat your log cabin vacation as an artist's retreat, make sure to take advantage of the Victoria Art Gallery's new space called The Studio. The new addition will open in 2024 to provide a creative space for locals, visitors, and schools.
  • Filming in Bath: The 2023 film Wonka, starring Timothee Chalamet, had numerous key scenes shot in Bath. Take walks along the historic architecture of the colonnades near Pulteney Weir, the Parade Gardens, and the lanes of Walcot Street and Bath Street to see how the ambience inspired much of the movie's aesthetics.
