Bath is a historic city located in the rolling countryside of Somerset, England, celebrated for its Roman-built baths and exquisite Georgian architecture. The city was first established as a spa resort by the Romans in AD 43 and was given the name Aquae Sulis. The Roman Baths, from which the city derives its name, are remarkably well-preserved and remain one of the city's most popular attractions. Above the Baths, you'll find the Pump Room, where you can sample the same mineral-rich waters that the Romans once did, straight from the spring itself.
Besides its Roman heritage, Bath is also famous for its Georgian architecture, especially the Royal Crescent and The Circus, which display some of the finest examples of this architectural style in the UK. Both landmarks were designed by architect John Wood the Elder and his son, encapsulating the grandeur and elegance of 18th century British design. Another noteworthy site is the Bath Abbey, a magnificent piece of religious architecture with stunning stained glass windows and towering spires.
Close to Bath, you'll find the ancient city of Bristol, known for its vibrant arts scene and maritime history. To the south, you can explore the picturesque towns of Frome and Bradford-on-Avon. Also within reach is Stonehenge, the prehistoric stone circle monument that is one of the most famous sites in the world. Towards the south-west, the beautiful Mendip Hills AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) offers opportunities for walking and wildlife spotting. Back in the east, the cities of Salisbury and Winchester, both rich in history and culture, are easily accessible from Bath.
