We've spoken to our students to find out their top tip for living in Bath. Set in the rolling hills of the English countryside, enjoy charming cafes and explore the outdoors. Read on to find out what this beautiful city has to offer our Kaplan students.
Explore Bradford on Avon
"I went to Bradford on Avon by bicycle with my host mother. We rode near the aqueduct. I think that it is a wonderful experience because you can enjoy seeing the landscapes and breathe clean air. The boathouses caught my attention because we don’t have them in my country."

Marvellous views of Bath, do the Skyline walk
"If you want to see marvelous views of Bath and have a look at the city from the hills, you should do the Skyline walk. If you decide to take this trip you should remember that you won’t only see amazing landscapes, but it’s a great opportunity to look at the historical monuments, ruins of castles, etc. which are encountered along the way. You can be sure that you will meet new friends during the trip, for most people won’t know the right direction, so you’ll discover Skyline places together."

The Bath Bun
"I recommend one lovely café where I like to spend some really good time with my friends. It’s called “The Bath Bun” located in the center of the city. One of my favorite things about this café is the atmosphere. They decorate the wall with a beautiful flower print and they also serve tea using a variety of colourful flower printed cups. There are many kinds of tea, which are not only from the UK but also from Asia so you can enjoy several different tastes. If you want to relax and enjoy you should try going to this wonderful café."
