Decent centre

Worth buying a map of the city centre and lots of helpful advice at the desk. There is lots to pick up on local attractions all over Somerset.

Positioned in the centre of Bath next to the Abbey it is a most useful source of things to do in Bath. Free maps and information brochures available from helpful and friendly staff.

My friend and I had only 2 1/2 days in Bath. The Mayor's walking tour on our initial half day gave us a wonderful overview of this lovely city and helped us best prioritize our remaining time. The website was also very helpful.

I would advise people not to book tickets for attractions online. Terrible experience. Due to having a disabled person in our party who cannot stay out too long at one time, I though that pre-booking tickets would be invaluable. However, after spending £6.99 for postage only two tickets arrived with the stated approx. 3 months date. One had just 1... More

This time I visited the Information Centre around 4.30pm on Wednesday - noting that they would be closing at 5.30pm. Previously on an earlier visit to Bath I had come to the centre when it was very busy so due to large queues decided against either requesting information nor purchasing any items there. My primary purpose was to get my... More

I wish this tourist information centre had more leaflets about the area within 50 miles of Bath. The leaflets that they do have are in an alcove which can get very crowded. There are staff behind a desk and I believe you can book tickets for tours there.

Conveniently located in the middle of historical Bath, the people here are knowledgeable and helpful in getting oriented to the town of Bath. They were able to point out to me where the free walking tour of Bath meets. It's just a few steps from the Abbey and is easy to find.

We were advised on choosing the best things to fit into one day without too much walking. Staff were patient, and found us leaflets to read about the choices.

We used the advice to plan what we might fit into 2 days, and also where to eat and to check if any other specific places had exhibitions on, Some combination of tickets can give a reduction on venue tickets eg the bus tour has a reduction into Roman Baths, There are some distances between sites so bus gives an...
