DID YOU KNOW? If you’re anything like us, you love a good weekend farmers’ market – and the first one (in the modern reincarnation we know and love) was held in Bath, in 1987.
DO SAY “Bath” (like ‘hearth’)
DON’T SAY “Bath” (the other way)
WHAT TO WEAR Make sure you bring your cossies if you fancy a dip in the thermal waters and your Bath rugby shirt if you’re in town for a match.
BEST VANTAGE POINT The Royal Crescent from Royal Victoria Park. Consistently rated the best view in the city by locals and visitors alike, you’ll struggle to get the perfect, people-free Instagram snap. It’s great fun to pretend you’re Jane Austen or the Duchess of Devonshire taking some air.
DIARY DATE Get your skates on for Bath on Ice, which is open 18 November 2016 to 3 January 2017 at Royal Victoria Park.
WHO YOU MIGHT SEE A regular visitor to Bath is Prince Harry. If our beloved ginger prince isn’t to your taste, try hanging around outside the rugby stadium on match days, where you’re likely to spot a premiership player, or 15.
WHERE TO STAY In Bath, accommodation doesn’t come more iconic than the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa. Think classical architecture, cobblestones underfoot and views over the rolling English countryside.
WHAT TO EAT & DRINK As far as traditional British drinking establishments go, the petite King William pub, not far from Larkhall, is a sterling example. The cuisine uses locally-sourced ingredients, and you can eat in the bustling downstairs bar or the upstairs dining rooms. Austen might not have been caught dead here, but you definitely should be.

Our store on Old Bond Street, once home to a cobbler, is right in the heart of Bath’s shopping district. Jack Wills, 14 Old Bond Street, BA1 1BL
