Bath Tours from London 4.5 rating

  Landmarks

Bath is an elegant and historic Georgian city which lies an hour away from London. A UNESCO World Heritage city for its stunning architecture as well as the ancient Roman Baths after which it is named, it makes for a perfect weekend getaway away from the bustle of the city.

The major highlight of Bath is, of course, the Roman Baths. The natural thermal springs were believed to have supernatural powers by the Romans, and a temple to Goddess Sulis Minerva was built next to it in Aquae Sulis, as Bath was known during the time. Votive offerings thrown into the spring by the Romans have been preserved and are on display.

The magnificent architecture of Bath, comprising Neo-classical Palladian crescents, terraces and squares, can be seen on a tour around the city. The Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, commonly called Bath Abbey, is a spectacular Perpendicular Gothic building with intricate fan vaulting in the nave. The Heritage Vaults Museum displays artifacts illustrating the history of the Abbey.

Bath has several other attractions that you could choose to explore such as Sally Lunn’s, Prior Park Landscape Garden and the Royal Crescent. Pride and Prejudice fans should check out the Jane Austen Centre, that details the author’s life in the city and the influence of the environs on her work.
