The waters at Bath have been believed to have healing powers since Roman times. They established the town as 'Aquae Sulis' in AD 43, and visitors should visit the Great Bath, much of which is untouched Roman architecture. Bath has been a designated World Heritage Site since 1987, reflecting the important historic architecture, which includes the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and the prevalence of fine Georgian architecture throughout the city. Bath was at the centre of Britain's arts in the 18th century. Thomas Gainsburough lived and worked in Bath, as did Jane Austen, who set Northanger Abbey and Persuasion in the city.

Even though the Roman baths are the main attraction, be sure not to miss the shops and everything else there! It's probably easier to get into town by a park and ride in my opinion.

This beautiful city has so much to offer that it's difficult to know where to start!
Perhaps what will strike you most is the perfection of the Georgian streets and crescents built in warm honey-coloured Bath stone. But then there are music festivals, literary festivals, theatres, endless restaurants and enticing shops, museums and National Trust properties, markets, deli's and tea shops. It has Roman Baths and a new a thermal spa, it has fabulous book shops, it has so much! We love living here and we are sure you'll love it as much as we do.

The city is often overshadowed by the Roman bath complex, but it is a special place in itself. The fascinating architectural styles and open green spaces make Bath a prime location for those looking to relax, stroll, and eat (its kindof a cuisine hotspot at the moment)
