Driving around Bath is not difficult, so if your trip includes excursions outside of the immediate area, consider renting a car. But driving in the city of Bath is tricky and carparking not easy to find. There is a large underground carpark under the new shopping district near the station but you will pay a couple of pounds an hour so watch the time. . All of the major car rental companies service the area but there is not a car hire outlet in the centre of Bath.
