Bath is one of Britain’s most beautiful towns, its incredible architecture, the healing waters of its spas and the unique atmosphere of its many pubs and cafes have seen its appeal a tourist destination endure for centuries. The iconic streets offer visitors the chance to explore thousands of years of local history - from the Roman era, to the modern.

Of course, the historical landmarks play a big role in Bath’s appeal. The Roman ruins as well as the surprisingly intact bathhouses draw visitors from all over the world and are accompanied by plenty of museums and information centres which document that time in the city’s past. Alternatively, there are also stunning examples of Georgian architecture, as well as several ‘time capsule’ homes displaying what life was like in the city’s heydey.
