Things to see and do in Bath

Bath is one of those cities that is best explored on foot. There are many miles of beautiful Georgian streets and the local sandstone has had a huge influence on the architecture of the city. Wimdu recommends you explore the city and discover its special corners and hidden delights! Bath is known for its good shopping and throughout the city you’ll find craft shops, souvenir shops and stylish clothes and jewelry shops. Once you have finished exploring, head for the historic Roman Baths that are over 2000 years old. They were discovered by the Victorians who restored the baths and since then they have become a popular tourist attraction. The baths are fuelled by England’s only natural hot springs and a trip to the baths is certainly an unusual experience. Just outside of the Roman Baths is another of Bath’s landmark buildings – the Bath Abbey. It’s the last gothic church in England and building commenced in 1499. It’s a huge church and the interior is really worth seeing! The Pulteney Bridge is one of the few examples of such a bridge left in the world and was built in the 18th century. It’s another of Bath’s landmarks and the shops that line both sides of the bridge make it certainly one of Bath’s most unique sights! Make sure you take a walk to Bath’s Royal Crescent – a huge crescent of 18th century houses overlooking a huge park – it’s amazing!
