No taxi fares to pay, every shop you could wish for on your doorstep including a big supermarket. Living in the centre of Bath has its advantages, being central means less hassle when getting to the shops during the day, or out to the pubs, clubs or restaurants at night.
The heritage city of Bath is steeped in tradition and living in the centre gives you an enormous sense of history and heritage, with the stunning architecture providing residents with a fantastic place to live. It has many places to visit, including the Cathedral and the Spa and is in close proximity to stunning parks such as Royal Victoria Park and Royal Crescent
The new Southgate Centre provides you with even more shops to choose from and with the cinema and theatre amongst other leisure activities you will never be short of something to do.
" I live in central Bath, by Pulteney Bridge. Yes it's more expensive, but I love it here - you're already in town (including being a 2 minute walk from the leisure centre), it feels very safe and you can go out for the night and walk home in 10 minutes.
It's a 20-30 minute walk up Bathwick Hill/North Rd - depending on how fit you are! It's actually a really nice walk once you get used to it; much cheaper, nicer and quite often faster than buses".
