It is essential to stroll around the splendid Georgian architecture of this world heritage city, and absorb the extraordinary delights of the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Great Pulteney Street, and the famous Pulteney Bridge with the nearby weir.
Bath has a rich array of Museums and Gaileries:
Roman Baths and Pump Room. Abbey Churchyard.
The Roman Bathing establishment with its magnificent Temple and Baths which flourished in Aquae Sulis between the first and fifth Centuries AD, and the extensive remains which still flow with natural hot water.
