Britain's littered with beautiful cities, but precious few compare to Bath. Home to some of the nation's grandest Georgian architecture – not to mention one of the world's best-preserved Roman bathhouses – this sophisticated city, founded on top of natural hot springs, has been a tourist draw for over 2000 years.

Bath is affectionately known as one of the most beautiful cities in England, and with many incredible examples of Georgian architecture, mixed with a host of world class museums, Roman history, natural thermal spas and boutique shops, it’s no wonder that it's one of the most visited places in the country.

Bath is the only destination in the UK to have the whole city designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO. 2017 marks 30 years since Bath was granted this special status in 1987, and has been listed as a ‘cultural site’ with outstanding universal value and cultural significance.
 

Attractions

The Roman Baths

The Roman Baths is one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe, and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the UK. Situated at the heart of the City of Bath, the World Heritage Site, consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water.

Walk around the steaming Great Bath where people bathed nearly 2,000 years ago, see the ruins of the temple of Sulis Minerva where Roman worshippers gathered, and explore the fascinating Roman objects in the museum. 

Bath Abbey

Looming above the city centre, Bath's huge abbey church was built between 1499 and 1616, making it the last great medieval church raised in England. Its most striking feature is the west facade, where angels climb up and down stone ladders, commemorating a dream of the founder, Bishop Oliver King.

Royal Crescent

Bath is famous for its glorious Georgian architecture, and it doesn't get any grander than this semicircular terrace of majestic town houses overlooking the green sweep of Royal Victoria Park. Designed by John Wood the Younger (1728–82) and built between 1767 and 1775, the houses appear perfectly symmetrical from the outside, but the owners were allowed to tweak the interiors, so no two houses are quite the same.

Jane Austen's Bath

2017 marks 200 years since Jane Austen, and where better to celebrate her life than in Bath? Jane knew Bath as a thriving spa resort, popular with fashionable society. She set two of her six published novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, in Bath and made the city her home from 1801 to 1806. Explore how living in Bath influenced her writing style have an afternoon tea, just like she did in the Regency Tea Room which which you can find above the Jane Austen Center.

Stonehenge

Walk in the footsteps of your Neolithic ancestors at Stonehenge – one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. Explore the ancient landscape on foot and step inside the Neolithic Houses to discover the tools and objects of everyday Neolithic life. Visit the world-class exhibition and visitor centre with 250 ancient objects and come face to face with a 5,500 year-old man.

Stonehenge is one of Britain's great archaeological mysteries: despite countless theories about the site's purpose, ranging from a sacrificial centre to a celestial timepiece, in truth, no one knows for sure what drove prehistoric Britons to expend so much time and effort on its construction.

 

 

Please note you must purchase the coach ticket in order to visit Stonehenge and the Roman Baths.
