Bath has been listed as a ‘Cultural Site’ with outstanding universal and cultural significance by UNESCO since 1987. It is the only destination in the UK to have the whole city designated a ‘World Heritage Site’. Explore the history behind the city’s spa culture by discovering the 2,000 year old Roman Baths, filled with ancient mystical artefacts and thermal water that still steams today.
Don’t miss the Royal Crescent, one of Bath’s most iconic attractions. Head over to Pulteney Bridgeand spend a few moments enjoying the weir views and the sight of the Holburne Museum at the end of the elegant Great Pulteney Street.
Visit the Jane Austin Centre in Gay Street which celebrates Bath’s most famous resident. Standing proud in the heart of Bath is Bath Abbey, a place of worship for over 1,200 years, it contains magnificent stained glass windows, wonderful golden stone columns and some of the finest fan vaulting in the world. All this is just a taste of what is on offer in the magnificent city of Bath.
Bath is one of England’s most popular cities. You can see great architecture in the streets of Bath. Foundations of the Roman Baths were rediscovered in 1755. This being a Roman city, the Abbey, built in 1499, is a latecomer. England’s first King was crowned here. There has been a church on this site for a thousand years. The carvings on the front of the Abbey show the dream of Bishop Oliver King who had it built.
One of the best things about Bath is that the city’s three main attractions, the Roman Baths, the Bath Abbey, and Pulteney Bridge, are all within walking distance of each other. This means all you need to get around is a pair of shoes, though I recommend also taking a bus tour of the city so you can get a narrated history as you ride around.
For information on the city of Bath and details of attractions visit the Bath Visitor Information Centre, located in the city centre, next to Bath Abbey.
