Named after its natural hot springs as a thermal spa built by the Romans, Bath is the largest city in Somerset, England. Just over 100 miles west of London, in the valley of the River Avon, Bath was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the late 1980s.
Bath’s stunning skyline can be viewed from many vantage points in the city, but Alexandra Park offers an unparalleled bird’s eye view. Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent and the main thoroughfare of Milsom Street can all be spotted.
Soak up the spa city
The ultimate spot to relax, Thermae Bath Spa marries old and new, letting you soak in Britain’s only naturally warm, mineral-rich spa waters whilst enjoying award-winning modern facilities, from steam rooms to a rooftop pool with breathtaking city views.
City and country
Take some time out with a stroll along the River Avon, the waterway connecting the city to its surrounding countryside. Meandering through the centre, it is spanned by the world-famous and shop-lined Pulteney Bridge.
Golden Bath stone is the foundation of the city’s Georgian architecture, showed off nowhere more impressively than the Royal Crescent. One of Bath’s most iconic landmarks and built in the late eighteenth century, the sweeping curve of Grade I listed houses is a sight to behold.
