Bath has been a popular city for for thousands of years, owing to the hot springs that bubble up to the surface at several locations in the city.

The city was beautifully re-invented in the 18th century and became a centre for high society, which you’ll see in the elegant crescents, squares and terraces, built for the Georgian elite. See the Roman Temple, and original Roman pavement. Take some time for lunch in one of the elegant tea rooms, and try a famous Sally Lunn bread bun.
