Getting around

Once you arrive in Bath you’ll discover how easy it is to navigate by foot. There’s no need for a car when exploring the city centre as all main attractions and many conference venues are within a short walking distance of each other. The majority of venues are situated within one mile of the train station.

You can also navigate the city using the new self-service nextbike hire scheme. The bikes can be found at nine rental points across Bath, 24 hours a day, and provide a cost-effective, quick and sustainable way to get around the city.

Some of our venues are located in Bath’s surrounding countryside. There are good road links to these excellent venues and they all have free car parking.
