Five micro-adventures you can take from BathWednesday 13 June 2018 by Jessica Mendoza Bath is the perfect gateway to many of the UK's favourite locations...
Bath is the perfect gateway to The Cotswolds - one of the most beautiful landscapes in the whole of the UK. Perfect for those who love to get outdoors and immerse themselves in nature, and just a 20 minute drive from the heart of the city, you’ll feel worlds away once you’re surrounded by the extraordinary landscape, rolling hills and idyllic villages. Keep an eye out for thatched cottages, twisting footpaths and historic landmarks.

Just an hour’s drive from Bath you’ll come across one of the few Wonders of the World. Wow! With more than 4,500 years of history, the famous Stone Circle is one of the most important remaining structures of prehistoric England. Stonehenge consists of a group of stones, some more than 20 feet high, arranged in two concentric circles – an inspiring sight.

Longleat Safari & Adventure Park
Half an hour away from our SACO Bath aparthotel lies Longleat Safari & Adventure Park. Take yourself on safari and drive through this incredible savanna, where you’ll be up close and personal with the elephants, lions and rhinos. You can also wander around the main square, where you’ll find yourself alongside the monkeys and cheeky meerkats. A perfect family day out.

Just a 20 minute train journey away from Bath, there’s no excuse not to pay a visit to the most iconic and Instagramable city in the UK. Bursting with colour, charm and originality, Bristol is an energetic city with a thriving art scene and a real love of food and drink. Culture, cider and Cabot Circus – don’t miss out!
Only an hour away from SACO Bath lies Worthy Farm, the birthplace of the nation’s most famous music and art festival, Glastonbury. But there’s so much more to this Somerset town than the Pyramid stage, as it’s immersed in myth and legend that connects it to King Arthur and Guinevere, Merlin and the Isle of Avalon. It’s a truly unique place with a charming spiritual heritage.
