The City of Bath Visitor Guide

The information presented on these Bath pages is based on the Bath City Centre Street Map and Guide

The city of Bath, in North East Somerset, England, is famous for its hot springs and spa water, for its Roman history and its Georgian architecture. It is a World Heritage Site. Bath is also one of the best shopping centres in the south west of England. King Bladud, the father of King Lear, was crowned in Bath, and Jane Austen lived in Bath and set two of her novels in the city.

There are many fascinating museums in Bath, including the Roman Baths Museum, which is one of the top ten attractions in Britain, the Costume Museum, the Jane Austen Centre, and the Museum of East Asian Art, among many others.

The Postal Museum is located at the address where the letter bearing the first postage stamp was sent from, and a museum dedicated to the musician and astronomer William Herschel is in the building where he discovered the planet Uranus.

Bath is a feast for lovers of fine architecture. Bath Abbey is magnificent. Bath's Georgian splendour is epitomised by The Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the Royal Crescent. And there are some splendid parks to view the city from.

One of the best ways to see Bath is on a guided walking tour or open top bus tour. Or see it from the air with a hot air balloon flight, or from the river Avon with a river cruise.

Food lovers will also find much to enjoy in Bath - you will need to stay here a very long time to savour all of Bath's culinary delights.
