A day out in historic Bath

Bath is a truly spectacular town set in the rolling countryside, known for its natural hot springs and beautiful 18th-century Georgian architecture. Take a visit to the famous Royal Cresent, the beautiful Bath Assembly Room or behold the grandeur of the original Roman Baths. Today’s visitors can also soak in the soothing waters at the contemporary Thermae Bath Spa then perhaps you'll refuel with a bite to eat in the famous Sally Lunn's tea room.

THE ROMAN BATHS

Visit the heart of the World Heritage Site. Around Britain's only hot spring, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. See the water's source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements around the steaming pool. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented using the best of modern interpretation.

BATH ABBEY

Begun in 1499, Bath Abbey is the last of the great Medieval churches of England. The West Front is unique as it depicts the dream that inspired the Abbey's founder, Bishop Oliver King, to pull down the ruined Norman cathedral and raise the present building on its foundations.
