Twerton is on the outskirts of Bath. There are some students in Twerton, but most residents are families. The local shops are clustered together so it's very convenient and will cater for most of your needs.
Every Thursday an open air market is held in Bath City Football Club car park. Local shops and amenities include a café, take-away, bakery, butcher, chemist, supermarket, video rental store, and newsagent. There is also a computer training centre a community centre, youth centre and a church.
"Twerton is generally occupied by families. The area is quite nice, if hilly. There is a high street, containing a Co-op, Blockbusters, Chinese takeaway, pub and several other shops. Both First and Wessex Connect serve the area, a number five from either service will take you to Whiteway from the bus station in about thirty minutes. Having only used the First service, I can testify that it is reasonably quick and reliable."
