The most famous draw of this elegant city is its World Heritage status, Regency terraces, colonnades and crescents, which have played host to many a film set for adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels, and more recently, Sherlock Holmes.  A luxurious way to enjoy Bath is from the heated rooftop pool of the Thermae Spa, which is a modern take on the original Roman Baths, which you can still visit in Bath.

Living in Bath doesn’t mean you will lose the connection to London – the capital is so easily reached that some locals knowingly call it ‘west west London’.  A short drive to the M4 junction will take you to Heathrow in 90 minutes and to London in less than two hours.  It’s even easier on the train; from Bath Spa its take around 90minutes to reach London Paddington.

Jane Austen has become more or less synonymous with Bath but there is far more to the city’s cultural scene than the museum and festival dedicated to the writer.

From great bookshops including Topping & Co, which is an addictively atmospheric bookshop with regular readings from top authors, to the Theatre Royal, one of Britain’s oldest and most revered theatres, which regularly hosts pre-West End productions, to the International Music Festival which packs out the city for 10 days each May, to the Bath Digital Festival which brings tech influencers from across Europe to the city each year.

And if country getaways are more your thing, then Babington House, a rural outpost of Soho House & Co, the private members’ club for people working in the creative industries, is a perfect place for a refined Sunday lunch. Or try The Pig near Bath is a cosy Georgian mansion with a ‘potting shed’ spa and kitchen-garden menu.
