Getting around Bath

The local airport is Bristol Airport (BRS), which is about a 35-minute drive to Bath. The best option from the airport to Bath is taking a bus or taxi. If you fly into London, it is easy to take a train or bus to visit Bath.

AJ says that there’s no need to rent a car when visiting Bath because the city is compact and very walkable. Plus, parking is hard to find and fairly expensive.

You should only rent a car if you plan on visiting other cities in the U.K. and want to drive along the English countryside on your own schedule. For the best offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.

Who is AJ Saunders?

It’s easy to trace where AJ’s love of digital started. His friend’s dad showed them how to write HTML code. Learning the basics of how to build a website sparked a love of digital marketing that continues to this day. Over the years, AJ developed my digital marketing skills with a strong focus on SEO, copywriting, and blogging. Even after all of these years, he’s still curious about online marketing, SaaS, and all things digital.

In the last decade, he has launched an eBook publishing company, a global e-commerce shop, and started the current brands in the AJS Digital Group’s portfolio. Also, AJ built countless websites for a range of clients and advised many on how to develop and implement a digital strategy for their business. Outside work, AJ enjoys playing guitar, tennis, and exploring country houses!
