Bath is well known for its striking Georgian architecture and natural hot springs. It is a town where you can immerse yourself in history and soak up the unique experiences Bath has to offer. One of the most famous attractions is the museum at the site of the original Roman-era Baths; it is a great place to take a step back in time to see how the Romans preferred to relax all those centuries ago. Bath's exceptional food and drink scene has gained the city a reputation as a delicious destination. Bath's compact, visitor-friendly city centre is packed with retailers large and small, from one of-a-kind independent boutiques to major high street names.
