A visit to Bath should start in the place where it all began, the Roman Baths. One of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe, these are the remarkably well-preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique natural springs rise here, and the historic Baths still flow with thermal waters.
Enjoy lunch in the elegant Georgian Pump Room, sampling spa waters that have been used as a ‘cure’ for over 2,000 years. Later, take in a few of Bath’s museums and galleries, such as the Victoria Art Gallery or the Holburne Museum, both full of fine and decorative arts from Bath’s Georgian ‘golden age’. In the evening, Walcot Street is the perfect place to discover Bath’s bohemian nightlife.
