Bath Town Guide, Royal Crescent, 12K

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, and the city is famous for its elegant Georgian townhouses and sweeping crescents.

Today Bath is one of the most beautiful cities in the UK, and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

With plenty to see and do, it is an absolute must for any visitor to the UK.
