Widcombe is a thriving community with excellent facilities and services on the southeastern fringes of Bath city centre. It boasts excellent eating and shopping, beautiful walks and spectacular scenery and is therefore very popular to live especially for couples, students and families. It sits on the Kennet and Avon canal and offers a community feel whilst not being to far from the city centre.

The area is reasonably priced, and contains mainly terraced and semi-detached properties for multiple occupancy.

It has all the amenities to meet your needs such as a GP surgery, dentist and a launderette as well as a niche shopping experience and lovely places to eat and drink. There are plenty of green spaces and an art gallery and a café.

Wicombe also has an active residents association, The Widcombe Association


Student Comment:

"Widcombe is a fantastic place to live. Transport links are good - the fit can walk to the University of Bath campus up Widcombe Hill, and the lazy can simply walk into the town centre (5 mins) and get a blue or an orange bus. There are many independent and quirky shops on Widcombe Parade. I love Widcombe!"
