Everything about Bath is impressive, even the simplicity of its name.
A city of timeless beauty, it developed around ancient thermal springs whose medicinal effects have been known and used for almost 2000 years. Bath is a World Heritage Site and deservedly one of the UKís top tourist attractions.
The town grew rapidly and became the setting for some of Jane Austenís most popular novels, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. Visit the Jane Austen Centre to discover more about the importance of Bath in the great novelistís life and works.
Pulteney Bridge is one of the most unique buildings in a beautiful city. It divides Bath gracefully in half and is one of three bridges in the world to be lined with shops on either side. Built by Robert Adam in 1771 it is a delight to photographers and shoppers alike.
Relive Bathís glory days as a social hot spot with a trip to the Pump Room. Eighteenth Century ladies and gentlemen gathered there before lunch to drink the regulation three glasses of mineral water a day for medicinal purposes.
Modern visitors can still sample the water from the Kings Spring but may prefer to relax with a cup of tea and a Bath Bun to the strains of the Pump Room Trio.
