Bath is a town in Somerset County, South West England, on the Avon River, 25 km southeast of Bristol, and offers a trip into the history of England, from Celts to Anglo-Saxons, and beyond time, when the city was a Roman spa resort. In 1987, it was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Roman Baths, which were built in 60 BC, can be also visited today. Tourist attractions are so numerous that the best way to visit them is through the Bath Visitor Card, which gives you great discounts at all museums.
Bath Abbey is immediately visible among other buildings in the city. Not only has it been there for a long time but his stunning stature, incredible Gothic architecture and lace details can not attract everyone’s attention. There are tours where you can climb to the tower, where you can admire the city and its surroundings, and the ticket costs 6 pounds.
Bath has grown in the Georgian era since most of the city’s buildings, built of stone-colored honey, were brought from the hills in the area. The most impressive examples are The Circus and the Royal Crescent, erected in the 18th century, prepared to meet families of high society, who also received visits from their relatives, friends and acquaintances in the elegant rooms of the Georgian houses. In Bath, the Avon River is crossed by one of Britain’s most beautiful bridges: the Pulteney Bridge. Although it was built in the Georgian period (18th century), it links the city’s story to the Romans, as it has inspired the famous Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
