A SMALL BUT MIGHTY GEORGIAN GEM

Often described as Britain’s most beautiful city, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, Bath is blessed with stately Georgian architecture that wows visitors from the get-go. It’s one of the UK’s smaller cities but it packs in plenty of attractions, so it’s an ideal location for exploring on foot.

HISTORIC ATTRACTIONS APLENTY

Named after its well-preserved Roman Baths that date back to the first century AD, Bath is a city steeped in history. As well as Roman remains, you’ll find age-old architecture that ticks off everything from Georgian to Gothic design. There’s also a medieval abbey, leafy Victorian parks, and museums documenting the city’s rich history.

THE HOME OF HOT SPRINGS

Thanks to three natural hot springs boasting mineral-rich water, Bath has been attracting visitors for thousands of years and has become a go-to destination for a relaxing spa break. Home to the only natural hot springs in Britain that you can bathe in, Bath offers the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Romans and enjoy a revitalising dip.

A THRIVING FOOD SCENE

Fast becoming a top foodie destination, you’ll find a wide range of dining options in Bath, from upmarket Michelin-starred restaurants to award-winning vegetarian eateries and cheap street eats. Afternoon tea is also a popular pastime and available in many of the city’s cafes, restaurants, and tea rooms. Oh, and be sure to sample the local delicacy: a Sally Lunn Bun, available at the famous Sally Lunn Tea Room, which is housed in one of the city’s oldest buildings.
