When to Go

Bath hosts many festivals throughout the year. May and June sees the International Music Festival showcasing classical, folk and jazz music which runs alongside the Bath Fringe Festival. September also sees the annual Jane Austen festival when the whole city dons bonnets and breeches. The summer is a very popular time to travel with generally good weather from May to August which pushes up prices and limits availability. October to April can be rainy but the Christmas markets offer the chance to sip mulled wine and admire the twinkling lights and accommodation prices will be lower.
