The Roman bathsAs its name implies, this city has a history linked to bathing. The Romans built a complex of bathhouses above the three natural hot springs. The King’s Bath was added in the 12th century around the site of the original sacred spring. The buildings were constructed around the central baths in the 18th and 19th centuries. There are free guided tours every hour starting from the Great Bath.

Thermae Bath SpaYou can even book in a dip in some baths yourself. You can take a dip in the Minerva Bath where there is a whirlpool and invigorating massage jet or enjoy the rooftop bath at sunset. Prices for the latter bath, the New Royal Bath, vary from £27 for two hours to £37 for four hours.

Relax in the stunning parks and gardens of Bath and beyond which are all worth visiting whatever the season. You can enjoy magnificent views of the city in Prior Park Landscape Garden or Royal Victoria Park which is situated below the stunning Royal Crescent. Here you can play golf, go bowling, eat in the café or enjoy the duck pond.

The Royal Crescent is a row of thirty terraced houses which are arranged in a sweeping crescent. It is a Grade I listed building and widely considered one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the UK. The crescent includes a hotel and Georgian house museum.
