    A UNESCO World Heritage city, Bath has its origins as a Roman spa town, and the thermal springs which first brought it to prominence are still a crucial part of its attraction for modern visitors.

    Almost 100 miles to the west of London, and just a few miles to the south-east of Bristol, the Somerset city of Bath is a popular choice for a romantic getaway or a cultural sojourn. The city is connected to Bristol and to the sea by the River Avon, which is navigable by small boats, via a system of locks. The river is connected to the River Thames by the Kennet and Avon Canal, and recent restoration work means that the route is once again popular with narrow boat users. Bath is also on the National Cycle Network.

    Things to do in Bath
    The Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex around Britain’s only hot spring. Naturally hot water still flows through the steaming pool, and visitors to the extensive ruins and treasures of the Roman Baths can also take lunch or afternoon tea in the 18th century Pump Room, and indulge themselves with a trip to a modern thermal spa at the New Royal Bath.

    The novelist Jane Austen was perhaps the city’s most famous resident, and a number of visitor attractions celebrate her work and life in Regency England, including an eponymous visitor’s centre and tea rooms, and a variety of specialised tours.

    Whilst there is much to see and do in the city itself, the local environs are also packed with a fascinating range of places to visit, including the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, the WWT Wetlands Centre at Slimbridge, and the stately home and animal park at Longleat. The caves and gorges at Wookey Hole and Cheddar are also within easy reach of the city.

    The Royal Crescent – One of the world’s best known architectural landmarks, the Crescent was built between 1767 and 1775, in response to the increasing number of visitors to the resort town and spa. Considered by many to be one of the finest achievements of Palladian architecture in Bath, the great curved façade of the Crescent consists of some 30 houses. The identical façades of many of the buildings in Bath were intended to give an impression of palatial scale and classical decorum, although they often disguised wildly differing interiors and rear exteriors. One of the properties in the Crescent now houses a fine hotel, whilst another has been beautifully restored and opened to the public by the Bath Preservation Trust, to demonstrate exactly how the interior of a Georgian townhouse might have looked and functioned.

    Pulteney Bridge – Perhaps one of the most beautiful bridges in the world, and reminiscent of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, with shops built into its structure, this romantic crossing was designed by Robert Adams to connect central Bath to the other side of the River Avon, and is best viewed from the Parade Gardens Park by the Crescent weir.

    Prior Park – The classical features of this Palladian gem were commissioned on a hill overlooking Bath by the philanthropist and quarry-owner, Ralph Allen, to demonstrate and promote the new, crisp stone-cutting techniques, which were being favoured by the architect John Wood to create the classical façades for which Bath later became famous.  The landscaped gardens at Prior Park are now owned by the National Trust, and open to the public. The gardens include the iconic Prior Park Palladian Bridge, which is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

    Radstock – Once a prosperous mining town, Radstock is now home to the Radstock Museum, which houses a wide variety of exhibits, demonstrating life in Somerset since the 19th century. Near to the town, the spoil heap from the old Writhlington colliery is now the Writhlington SSSI.

    Bradford on Avon – The Kennet and Avon Canal runs through this Wiltshire town, which is also the site of St Laurence’s church, one of the relatively few surviving English Saxon churches that does not show later medieval alteration or rebuilding.
