Why Go on a Tour of Bath

Located in Southwest England, the city was first established as a thermal spa and nowadays it carries the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After receiving its name after the Roman-built baths, till this day it is a great place to relax and enjoy the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in.

Home to the famous writer Jane Austen, the city surely resembles a chapter of a book, since its elegance and authentic heritage has been very well preserved. One of the main points of interest to put on your Bath itinerary is the Royal Crescent and if you travel even further, you'll see the astonishing Bath Abbey, founded in the 7th century.

After actively exploring the area, make sure to relax at the Thermae Bath Spa or savor local cuisine in one of the many restaurants. What is also worth visiting, when it comes to the gastronomic traditions of the city, is the vast selection of heritage pubs, bars, and bistros. In addition to that, there are actually festivals dedicated to the local food and drink customs, as well as multiple ones for music and literature, held every year. Another jewel for the literature lovers in the area is the Jane Austen Center, where the guides take you back to the early 1800s. Should we remind you to add the American Museum in Britain to your Bath tour as well?

It is possible to explore most of the city on foot; however, Bath sightseeing cannot be completed without a day trip out of town to the world-famous Stonehenge, so make sure to hop on a tour or organize some other way to reach the remarkable landmark.

Bath may seem small, but its immense heritage of history, culture, and local traditions will leave you amazed and wandering around the city, trying to appreciate every little detail.
