Places to stay in Bath

People of all ages who love their history, culture or just a visually-stunning escape will simply adore Bath. Created as a natural spa location by the Romans under the name Aquae Sulis roughly 20 years after they landed in Britain, Bath would go on to have a major significance in national history from its very early days.

Initially the site of a temple, this landmark would go on to be worshipped by Iron-Age Britons indigenous to the region. Harnessing the natural resources of stone and the Roman-approved water supply, Bath transformed into a spa town during the Georgian and Victorian eras, embracing the stunning post-Industrial Revolution developments in architecture to hone its unique identity.

Its remarkable number of family-friendly sights and sounds are undoubtedly enhanced by Bath's status as World Heritage Site since 1987, which is a fair reflection of the city's cultural strengths. Whether you're after theatres, museums or even a few sporting venues, you too can enjoy what nearly four million day visitors to Bath get each and every year.
