Bath: Glorious History, Majestic Beauty

The stunning city of Bath, which lies in the valley of the River Avon and is a World Heritage Site, has been a popular tourist destination for centuries.

The city’s history is indelibly connected with water: Bath was founded on the only natural thermal spa in Britain. When the Romans arrived in AD43, luxurious bathing facilities were built and the city became known as Aquae Sulis. Nearby is the magnificent Abbey, where Edgar was crowned the first king of England in 973, and which was rebuilt in Tudor times.

Helped by the royal approval of Queen Anne, Bath expanded impressively in Georgian times, as elegant terraces such as Queen Square, The Circus and Royal Crescent were built to accommodate the city’s fashionable visitors, and the Assembly Rooms were constructed to entertain them.

You will enjoy some wonderful views of the city and surrounding area from a boat trip along the River Avon from Pulteney Bridge to Bathampton. There is also a tribute to Bath’s rich industrial heritage, including crane manufacturers Stothert and Pitt.

The fascinating story of this enchanting city, which is told by local author and researcher Kirsten Elliott, concludes with a visit to the spectacular Thermae Bath Spa. Visitors to Bath can once more bathe in the natural hot waters that made the city famous.
