Bath is a beautiful Roman city which nestles in the heart of the county of Avon and Somerset. Its characteristic rolling hills and limestone facades have been attracting visitors for many years.
The city of Bath takes its peculiar name from the Roman Baths that were built here between the 1st and 4th centuries AD, the remains of which can still be seen today. Since its earliest days as a Celtic settlement, the history of Bath is inextricably linked to the natural waters that rise up here.
The heyday of Bath came in the 18th century when it became a fashionable spa town, and was a focus for English high society. Much of the architecture of Bath dates from this time.
