The Roman Baths

A visit to Bath would not be complete without a visit to the ancient Roman Baths. This gives you a glimpse of Roman times, when the Roman Empire occupied England, and how they lived. The Roman Baths were combined with Georgian architecture, opened in 1897, and utilise the naturally occurring geothermal hot water spring which runs under the site.In contrast, you can experience the same waters enjoyed by the Romans at the nearby ‘Thermae Spa’ and indulge in many of the Spa Breaks and treatments available, which is why Bath is the number spa destination in the UK.

Jane Austen Centre

The next big attraction for visitors from around the globe to Bath is the Jane Austen Centre, and the many places around the city where this famous literary resident drew inspiration for some of her most well-known books.

Both of Jane Austen’s books ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Persuasion’ use Bath as a setting, featuring descriptions of ‘taking the waters’, the social life and music recitals within them. So it’s no wonder that experiencing the world of Jane Austen and this famous city is so prevalent with the huge number of fans who visit the city.

Number 1 Royal Crescent

Make sure to pay a visit to experience the beauty, grandeur and lovely views from the most famous address in the city of Bath, Number 1 Royal Crescent. A beautifully restored Georgian townhouse, and the first house to be built in the Crescent, it has been residence to both aristocrats and Royalty in the past and is now a museum portraying life in the 18th century.

If you are looking for a Bath City Centre Hotel, you will have plenty to choose from that offer convenient access to the city centre and all of the attractions on offer.
