Visitors head to Bath all year round; in summer for the blossoming gardens and in winter for the Christmas markets. During the winter months, temperatures can drop to around 3 degrees so packing a wooly hat and gloves would be wise. However in the summer months of July and August, the city warms up and often reaches temperatures in the mid-twenties or higher, perfect for a picnic in the park. Make sure to keep an umbrella handy though, we’re still in England after all!
