Bath

Since Roman times the beautiful city of Bath in the English county of Somerset has been revered for the health-giving properties of its natural hot springs. As the fashion for holidaying in spa resorts reached its height during the Georgian era between 1714 and 1830, Bath holidays became popular with people at every level of society, and as a result the city's population grew from two thousand to thirty thousand within a century.

Grand Tour of the UK

“The tour was good with excellent local guides, the tour manager Peter Scott had to deal with a number of setbacks very successfully including the Sunday train strike in Scotland and arranging for alternative transport. The only drawback was only staying in hotels for one night and moving on to the next phase, this proved to be quite tiring.

Today, however, holidays to Bath offer visitors much more than the opportunity to relax and unwind in a spa. This popular UK short break destination is a UNESCO World Heritage site and boasts a magnificent architectural heritage, a wealth of cultural and recreational activities, many historic landmarks and an abundance of excellent and eclectic shops, bars and restaurants.

Set within the naturally scenic area of the River Avon valley and surrounded by hills, Bath holidays allow visitors both to journey through and admire the timeless beauty of an unspoilt British landscape and to discover the many attractions of one of England's most romantic and best-loved spa resorts.

Roman Baths

Abandoned when the Romans departed England in the fifth century, the Roman Baths (Their Latin name is Aquae Sullis) enjoyed a renaissance in the eighteenth century as spa resorts once again found favour for the assumed healing properties of their waters. Now a museum, the Roman Baths displays perfectly-preserved Roman architecture and countless Roman artefacts uncovered in the course of excavating the site.
