A really amazing place and the Roman baths aren't the only thing to see here, the shopping centre is also really nice and a totally different experience than to any other shops I've been to in the UK. Overall, a brilliant city.

This is why people visit Bath (or so I'd have to assume, being it's namesake and all). In essence, what you're getting is what you'd expect - an ancient roman bath, with history galore. It's actually one of those experiences, however, that lives up to expectations - after seeing it more than 5 years ago, I still remember it as one of the cooler places I saw in the U.K. Also, don't miss out on Stonehenge, which isn't terribly far away (and a good stopping point between here and London).

Bath is so named because one of its main features is, well, a bath. A big, luxurious real Roman bath dating back to the time when Ol' Blighty was part of the Roman empire. It's also a really charming little city, with loads of quaint cafes, Bath University (and so lots of creative students), and green riverbanks.

Roman Baths, Sally Lunn's Buns and Sense and Sensibility's Jane Austen are only a few of famous things coming out of this UNESCO's World Heritage Site. Bath has all the typical classic Britain's city and more unique gems that others don't have. It is a truly beautiful city, deep in ancient heritage and full of beautiful architecture. I was there only for one weekend, and I wished I could stay a little bit more. Very recommended!

I absolutely adore the city of Bath, there is so much to see and do...yet it's compact enough that you can easily walk and navigate the small city centre. Gorgeous architecture, tons of history (roman baths! jane austen!), lots of lovely shops and the entire city is surrounded by rolling countryside. It'd definitely get a B&B and do an overnighter in Bath, it's one of my favourite places in the UK!

Bath is a historical little city- it almost feels more like a town. There's a certain Oliver Twist-ian feel to this city: tourists come to stare up in wonder at the grand Georgian townhouses that parade the streets, particularly the curve of the spectacular Royal Crescent and the ring of houses that create the Circus. There are cafes galore, sitting cute and quaint on cobbled streets. A visit to the Pump Rooms by the impressive Bath Abbey is a novelty- serving High Teas of all varieties, to a backdrop of classical music and regency style decor. Of course there are the old Roman Baths to look around and a modern spa version in which you can enjoy the special waters of Bath. Bath can cost you a pretty penny... but it's certainly a special and worthwhile visit to make. It is an ideal size and shape to explore by foot in a day; or for a longer stay there are streams of majestic hotels and quaint B&Bs....

We went here on a day trip out of London and enjoyed this city tremendously. It is very easy to walk around in and train station is very close. Rainy day so make sure you take an umbrella as the weather is very changeable.
