It’s possible to walk from one side of Bath to the other in about half an hour so you’ll have no problem getting to all the main attractions on foot. The city centre is quite compact and many of the main shopping areas are pedestrianised, making it even easier to get around on foot.
Even though the city is easy to navigate on foot, it should be noted that a comprehensive network of buses runs around Bath and the outlying areas if you feel like giving your feet a rest. Most of these services are run by FirstGroup and the main bus station is on Dorchester Street beside Bath Spa train station.
