Explore the roman
city of Bath
Bath is a small, elegant city named after the Roman baths it is famous for. It is a World Heritage Site and one of the Great Spa Towns of Europe. Famous English author Jane Austen lived in Bath and set two of her novels in the city too.
There is lots to see and pupils can choose to do a walking tour of the city with a teacher to explore. Together they cross Pulteney Bridge, lined with shops and cafes, to the old Bath Abbey an onto beautiful parks and gardens, galleries, museums and shops.
Our older pupils can visit some of the various sites, like the Roman Baths, on their own. We often take younger children to visit an excellent adventure playground as part of their visit.
We like to include a visit to the beautiful Alexandra Park on our visit.

We are careful to balance freedom to explore, which helps build confidence and independence, with supervision and support to ensure the safety and wellbeing of every pupil on our trips and excursions. All ECS trips are fully risk-assessed with a thorough 'what if' process to ensure we are prepared for every eventuality.
There are always at least two members of staff on each coach. Younger children are accompanied at all times with at least one member of staff with every six children. Older children (11+) can explore museums and parks in small groups, with our staff nearby. Pupils are advised to stay in pairs if they are away from the group, for example using the toilets.
As the rail connection takes around twice as long, we take a coach for this journey. Travelling together in one vehicle, helps keep this excursion fuel-efficient, and reduces air pollution and carbon emissions. We always ask our providers about their green credentials.
