"Bath has a fair few pubs and clubs. It's not quite Bristol but there's an acceptable night life."
"Clubs have to close in the city by 3.00 am due to noise restrictions but there is generally a good variety of places to go from clubs to bars with live music and a lot of pubs. There are also lots of cocktail bars and a Slug & Lettuce with two-for-one cocktails. There are a lot of student nights on and off campus so there is always somewhere with something to do if you want to go out. The buses run 24 hours a day on the main routes so it is easy to get to and from town. There are two cinemas, one affordable local cinema and an Odeon. It is also very cheap and quick to get to Bristol by bus and train so you can go to all the nights out there and get the earliest train back if you want a full night out."
"The pubs are plentiful but clubs are a bit more limited. You're still good for a night out though and the club nights on campus are always packed."
"There are plenty of pubs and clubs, although after a few years it can be hard to find something new. Bristol isn't far away though."
"You can find many clubs both on and off campus including student bars and pubs."
"We've got a reasonable number of pubs and bars that cater to every taste around the town centre. Night clubs are not so numerous due to the size of the town and are not very active, if at all, during off-term times."
"There are plenty of good pubs and nightclubs, though many of the nightclubs are underground so can get quite hot."


"You can visit the Bath Spa, various bars and restaurants, Sydney Gardens and a cinema."
"Good clubs, roughly one for each night of the week."
"Not a huge amount in the way of nightlife but Po Na Nas on a Friday is so much fun!"
"There are a limited number of clubs as it is quite a small town but you do not get bored as they all offer different types of music."
"There are lots of clubs but not very big ones. We also have bars."
"There are club nights and many coffee shops, bars and eateries as well as tourist attractions. There are also parks that you can play games or just chill out in."
"There's lots of amazing architecture and history since it's an old Roman town. The Bath Spa, Bath Abbey and many other locations are famous landmarks."
"There are good places for fine dining and movie nights out. It's safe to walk around."
"Lots of cultural attractions such as the Roman Baths and art galleries. Nice walks and places to eat."
"It depends on what you want, the clubs are small and low key but there are loads of great pubs and bars."
