    Roman Baths Museum

    Art And Culture, History Museum, Water Body, Historical Site

    Rainwater from the nearby Mendip Hills heated up deep in the earth rises to this outlet at a rate of over a million litres every day. The Celts found it first, and built a shrine to Sulis here, but it was the Romans who brought style to the place. After conquering, they wasted little time deifying the place to the Roman Minerva, and over three centuries and some heavy-duty engineering, built u...Read more

    Bath Abbey

    Art And Culture, Church, Religious Site, Landmark

    A site of religious meditation since the 7th century, the abbey saw it’s grandest times during the 15th. The church seems to reach for the sky, and seems to be ready to take flight any second. Visitors delight in the many little aspects of its architecture that come together to create a soaring grandeur. Note the high arching windows, the oblong tower, the bells, the famous fan vaulting,...Read more
  3. The Circus And The Royal Crescent

    Walking Area, Square, Architecture , Neighborhoods

    This wasn’t an actual circus or anything. Instead, it’s a neighbourhood of really cool Gregorian architecture (perhaps the grandest in the country), a circular facade for viewing delight whenever someone warders in. The circle actually forms the handle of the masonic key shape that you can see from the air over the neighbourhood. The teeth part of the key is the Queen’s Squar...Read more

    Thermae Bath Spa

    Leisure, Spa

    After a trip to the Roman Bath Museum, many a traveller has succumbed to a desire to be pampered like the ancients were. The waters are at a comfortable 48 degrees Celsius, but you can have so much more than a thermal bath. The spa’s many packages let you choose the manner of relaxation and the views from the roof top pool are unbeatable… especially on a clear night. Try the aroma...Read more
  5. Sally Lunns Historic Museum And Eating House

    Museum, Food And Drinks, Restaurant

    History and cuisine have never before come together at such reasonable prices. Housed in the oldest residence in Bath is the most charming and most romantic eatery you can imagine. It’s wonderful for afternoon tea and it’s wonderful for dinner. The staffs are warm as anything and will make you feel right at home. Combine your food with a little foray into the museum showcasing the ...Read more
  6. Pulteney Bridge

    View Point, Scenic Drive, Bridge, Architecture

    Two rows of everyday shops across each other wouldn’t seem like something worth commenting about… unless it was on a bridge, and that sort of thing only happened in three other places in the entire world. Bath is pretty unique in more ways than it’s namesake. Spanning the River Avon, this Palladian structure attracts the curiosity of many. Popping into one of the café...Read more
  7. Prior Park

    Prior Park

    Park, View Point, Architecture , Hill

    The park and house are on a hill, so they give lovely views of the town. The house was supposedly built to demonstrate the use of Bath Stone in architecture, and has a wonderful manor-like atmosphere. The architecture, in combination with the landscaped garden and the Palladian Bridge all combine to create a serene and rich trip back in time. In good weather, the park looks like something out o...Read more
  8. Grand Pump Room

    Grand Pump Room

    Historical Site, Food And Drinks

    Another of Bath’s historic buildings, a visit here is usually preceded by a visit to the Roman baths, which is right across the street. Built using bath stone and with Corinthian architecture influences, visitors usually come here to sample the waters that flows into the Roman Baths. The idea is that drinks the rather unsavoury tasting water and sees all your ills cured. Coming to the Pum...Read more
  9. Theatre Royal Bath

    Theatre Royal Bath

    Art And Culture, Entertainment, Performance, Theatre

    This theatre is quite prominent in the British stage scene, and perhaps the most important outside of London. Many West-End productions are given a trial run here before moving on to the big city. That’s not to say that the shows tend to fall short. The setting is pretty intimate, so you feel like you’re part of all the action happening on stage. Classics like Fiddler on the Roof an...Read more
