Taking a plug ( 😉) on visiting Bath and if anyone has done so could recommend a campsite within striking distance .

Thanks in anticipation

Bath Marina is a bit basic but it's where we always stay as an easy 20-25 min walk to town along the river.

Many thanks guy’s l appreciate your reply’s I’m looking for a 2 night stay and l can’t see the park n ride would be something the Council would allow. Despite the weather l’m sure Bath is a great stopover on our 10 day tour .

Regards

The park and ride is a walk from the marina site. About 5 minutes I think from memory. It’s just the closest bus stop into Bath.

It’s a nice walk into Bath as well.

Another vote for Bath Marina. Park and Ride into Bath, cycle track to Bristol or X39 bus every 15ish minutes to Bristol city centre - all 5 minutes walk from the site.

Errrr...

You don't have to do the park AND ride...

...just stroll through from the Marina Campsite and do the "Ride" part.

JJ :cool:

Bath Marina Site is in a great location for visiting Bath either by public transport or a brisk walk. My visiting grandchildren loved the adjacent play area. Toilet/showers dated but clean. Reception very friendly. Avoid being pitched under trees, the squirrels are a BLOODY nuisance especially at about 5am when, they get started!!

Nice easy going site at Bath Marina.easy access to park & ride. One pub by the park & ride another about 1/4 of a mile towards Bath. Thought it worth mentioning that we were able to access Bath along the tow path with the mobility scooter....non Stef route by the supermarket. Think it was Sainsbury's

Just got back from 4 nights on this site and had a great time.
The first day my son and I cycled along the disused railway line into Bristol (14 easy miles each way) and then we took the P&R into Bath the next 2 days (£3 each return, under 16's free). Can thoroughly recommend the Roman Baths (allow at least 2 hours) and last night we went to The Globe in (excellent meal and friendly staff) https://www.vintageinn.co.uk/restaurants/south-west/theglobenewtonsaintloe. The Boathouse is the nearest pub but was just about to close for refurbishment and had a restricted menu but looked ok. For the beers lovers (like me), there is a micro brewery just up the road from the campsite https://electricbearbrewing.com/

From memory the main Bath Coach Car Park is ONLY £2 from 6PM to 8AM.
Make sure to leave before 8AM though as the Traffic Warden will pounce.
Do take your swimming costume and visit the Roman Baths Spa. Expensive but amazing.
Bottom floor a walk in pool, middle floor showers and scented steam rooms and the top floor is a walk in open air roof top pool.

Visiting Bath after March 2021 may cause a problem for pre euro 6 Motorhomes registered as PHGV ( over 3.5 tonnes). The proposed clean air zone comes into effect then and there will be a daily charge of £9 Bath Clean air zone charges.

For those trying to get to Bath Marina Site from the east they will either have to pay the £9 to cross Bath, arriving and leaving or divert around Bath to approach the Marina from the Bristol side.
