Things To Do In Bath

Bath is located in the ceremonial county of Somerset in the South West of England and is only 90 miles from London and just 13 miles from Bristol. Nourished by natural hot springs which feed the fascinating Roman Baths, the City of Bath offers a unique experience with stunning architecture, great shopping and iconic attractions.

The city was first established as a spa with the Latin name, Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s about 20 years after they had arrived in Britain , although oral tradition suggests that Bath was known before then. The Romans built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs. Much later, it became popular as a spa town during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.

The City of Bath was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1987. The City has a variety of theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues and two universities and several schools and colleges.
