Located in the county of Somerset, Bath is a fabulous city to visit. Its combination of rich history and contemporary culture makes it one of the UK's most popular destinations.
Formally made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, it remains a relaxing yet vibrant place to spend time
Although the city's roots are thought to stretch back to the Iron Age, it first came to prominence around 60 AD. This period saw the Romans build a temple and baths in the valley of the River Avon. This site was known initially as 'Aquae Sulis' but over time became known as Bath.
Following this, Bath found further fame in Georgian times for the restorative nature of its spring water.
The city has continued to grow and now attracts well over a million tourists each year.
