The local area guide to living in Bath

The historic city of Bath takes its name from its most iconic landmark – the Roman Baths. Situated to the southeast of Bristol, it’s a small city that combines charm with modernity, making it a popular tourist attraction. In fact, in 1987, UNESCO named it a World Heritage Site.

There is a wide variety of active industries in Bath, with plentiful jobs in the education and health sectors, and many publishing, software and service companies in the area.

Information about the local residents

There are approximately 176,000 inhabitants in Bath and the surrounding areas, almost 95% of which described their ethnicity as White in a recent survey – roughly 10% more than the national average. The next largest ethnic group is Asian, which accounts for 2.6% of the local population (in comparison with 7.7% of the national population).

Bath’s age demographics are slightly older than the average, with 16% of residents aged 15 or below and 18% aged 65 and over, but there is a high rate of employment. More than 97% of the working-age population is in employment, which is more than 2% higher than the national average.

Nearby schools

All of Bath’s primary schools meet Ofsted’s ‘satisfactory’ requirements, with many achieving ‘outstanding’ ratings. Bathampton Primary School, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School are amongst some of the best ranked in the area.

For secondary school education, students have a choice of state-run academies, independent schools or the ‘outstanding’ Saint Gregory’s Catholic School. Oldfield and Beechen Cliff are two of the state-run schools which previously achieved an ‘outstanding’ score, while Prior Park College and Kingswood School are some of the mostly highly regarded independent schools.

There are two universities in Bath itself – Bath Spa University and the University of Bath. Students can also study further education and vocational courses at the City of Bath College, or specialise in childcare and teaching through Norland College.

Getting around

When driving into Bath, the easiest route is to take the A36, which leads to Salisbury, or the A4, which takes you to Bristol. However, the city has made recent efforts to reduce car pollution in the area by introducing frequent bus services in and around the city, as well as a park and ride service.

The city is also home to Bath Spa Railway Station, which runs regular routes to major cities such as Bristol, Cardiff, London and Plymouth via the Great Western Main Line, while the Wessex Main Line serves Brighton, Salisbury and Portsmouth.

Local shops

Bath is famed for its historical significance, so there is no shortage of museums in the city. As well as the famous Roman Baths, there’s No.1 Royal Crescent – a living museum of Georgian life – and The Building of Bath – a celebration of the city’s architecture. Meanwhile, the Herschel Museum of Astronomy and The Jane Austen Centre celebrate famous former residents.

Other entertainment options include the Theatre Royal – a venue that hosts comedy, drama, dance and music, and the Egg Theatre – which regularly features family-friendly shows. You can also catch the premiere of a play at the Ustinov Theatre, or a concert at The Michael Tippett Centre.

For music lovers, the Bath International Music Festival, Party in the City and The Bath Guitar Festival are just some of the city’s many music festivals that run annually. There are also digital, comedy and agricultural fairs, as well as famous sports events such as the City of Bath Triathlon and the Bath Half Marathon.

And last but not least, there are five distinct shopping districts in Bath: Central Area, full of specialist boutiques; Stall and Union Streets, featuring high-street chains; Upper Town, home of luxury retailers; Milsom Quarter, where designer brands and high-end department stores can be found; and The Western Area, a popular destination for locally owned shops and farmer’s markets.
