The Historic Roman Baths
The Roman Baths are one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe, and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the UK. The Roman Baths consist of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water.
The Royal Crescent
The Royal Crescent, one of Bath’s most iconic landmarks, was built between 1767 and 1775 and designed by John Wood the Younger. This impressive landmark is arranged around a perfect lawn overlooking Royal Victoria Park and forms a sweeping crescent of 30 Grade I Listed terrace houses. It is, without doubt, one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecture anywhere in the UK.
Jane Austen Centre
Nestled in the heart of the city is the Jane Austen Centre, a permanent exhibition that explores Jane’s time in Bath and the influence that this beautiful city had on her books, characters and personal life. Together with its Regency Tea Room and Gift Shop, the Centre has become one of the most popular celebrations of Jane Austen.
Pilgrims and visitors have been made welcome at Bath Abbey for hundreds of years. As one of the most visited places in the South West, it welcomes hundreds of thousands of people through its doors each year but is fully aware that every visitor comes with their own expectations, beliefs and purpose. Whether it’s to admire the wonderful architecture, to enjoy exceptional music in a beautiful setting or to pray, come and experience the Abbey’s rich history and special atmosphere for yourselves.
One of the most photographed examples of Georgian architecture in the city and one of only four bridges in the world to have shops across its full span on both sides, Pulteney Bridge was designed in 1769 by Robert Adam. The architecture is classical, with pediments, pilasters and tiny leaded domes at either end.
