A vibrant Heritage City
Let us guide you through the superb Roman remains, wealth of fine Georgian architecture and impeccable historic credentials - no wonder Bath is a World Heritage Site. This world-famous city has originated and developed around its hot spring waters discovered by the Romans over 2,000 years ago, and the famous Roman Baths remain to this day. A thriving and vibrant city, Bath combines its fascinating history with a diversity of museums, galleries, gardens and tourist attractions, making it a beautiful, exciting and unique city to visit.
Culture and heritage
The golden city of Bath has been welcoming visitors for over 2,000 years. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Britain's Heritage Cities, Bath is home to some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, such as the Royal Crescent, the Circus and Pulteney Bridge. But Bath is not buried in the past! Festivals, theatre and vibrant street entertainment, bring life and excitement to this beautiful city.
It's a challenge to visit Bath and not want to see the Roman Baths & Pump Room - one of the finest ancient monuments in Europe and Britain's only hot spring. Unfortunately, you can't bathe here as the Romans did, but you can in the Thermae Bath Spa, which uses the same warm, mineral-rich waters the Celts and Romans did 2,000 years ago.
Bath's reputation for shopping dates back to Georgian times - Jane Austen mentions the fashionable Milsom Street in her novel Persuasion, and it's there that you can still treat yourself to some designer chic. The Upper Town is a treasure trove of unique labels and vintage clothing, and Stall Street is where you'll find your favourite High Street shops.
Food and drink
If you're looking for a real taste of the West Country, Bath is the perfect place. The local farmers markets are a great place to sample the region's wines, cheeses and organic fruit and vegetables. Pop into Sally Lunn's the oldest house in Bath, and sample the famous Sally Lunn Bun, then try the delicious Bath Bun to see which you prefer.
