Bath - Attractions

Time Off

The city of Bath is situated beside the Avon River in the south-west of England. It was founded by the Romans in 1 AD, who chose to settle beside the only hot springs in the country. For a few centuries they stayed and built extensive lead-lined baths, which are open to visitors today. By 400 AD Bath had been abandoned, remaining so for several hundred years. Rejuvenation began with the wool trade in the 15th century, and by the 18th century Bath was at the height of fashion. At this time, architects designed and built the many fine Georgian buildings that survive today. With an interesting selection of museums, galleries, musical events, restaurants and gracious parks, visitors to Bath can choose from the very best of past and present.

Bath Attractions

Royal Crescent
Bath

The Royal Crescent, widely considered to epitomise the grandeur of 18th-century Palladian architecture, was designed by John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774. No 1 Royal Crescent has been restored by the Bath Preservation Trust and can be viewed as an authentic example of 18th-century decor and style. Here, visitors can enjoy a glimpse into the former home of, among others, the Duke of York, son of George III.

Today, visitors can have tea or coffee in the Pump Room or sample the spa water from the elegant pump fountain.

Queen Square
Bath

Built between 1729 and 1739, this square was the first example of Georgian architecture built in Bath. Designed by local architect John Wood the Elder, its style set the tone for many subsequent buildings in the city. The obelisk in the square was presented to the city by wealthy resident Beau Nash, in recognition of a gift he received from Prince Frederick, Prince of Wales. The fine architectural supremacy of the Circus and Royal Crescent can be easily reached from this landmark.
