Bath is a city in England.

Hitching out

North/West/East towards London, Cardiff, Bristol

Walk down to the end of London Road until you get to the large roundabout. You want the first exit for the A46 which goes to the M4. There are two lanes and so a vehicle can stop for you in one of these lanes (there is no layby at this junction). Most drivers will be driving to the M4 (J 18) from this roundabout - the motorway onramps at J 18 (East and West) have plenty of space for vehicles to pull over. Using a sign here could take you a long distance in either direction, to London, Wales or even North up the M5 User:Xael Impala often hitches up to Worcestershire using this route).

South-East towards Trowbridge, Warminster, Salisbury

Walk to the start of Warminster Road, which is the A36 going out of Bath (past Sydney Gardens). On the left of this uphill road there is a place for cars to pull in. Wait times can vary but rides will often be going long distances down the A36. Also a good spot if hitching to Stonehenge.

Hitching in

Coming from London / the west, there is a junction that heads to Bath with a layby just past the roundabout. Head there. You should get a ride pretty snappy.

Places to avoid

Accommodation and Sleep

Bath has spectacular countryside and it should be quite easy to camp out once walking out of the city in any direction (half an hour from the centre, more or less).
