Places to stay in Bath

People of all ages who love their history will simply adore Bath. Created as a natural spa location by the Romans under the name Aquae Sulis around 20 years after they arrived in Britain, Bath initially became the site of a temple, which would itself become worshipped by Iron-Age Britons indigenous to the region. Bath would go on to harness its natural resources - and 1,500-year-old architecture - as a spa town during the Georgian and Victorian eras.

Its remarkable number of family-friendly sights and sounds are undoubtedly enhanced by Bath's status as World Heritage Site since 1987, bringing an even richer arts centre offering countless theatres, museums, and other venues since then.

Five Free Things To Do In Bath

Royal Victoria Park
The perfect place for families to relax, Royal Victoria Park is overlooked by the Royal Crescent and offers a wide variety of activities, from skateboard ramps to 12 and 18-hole golf courses, tennis courts to bowling and putting greens, and even a boating pond; it has since been added to the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.

Roman Baths
The Roman Baths is a must for history buffs and offers the Sacred Spring, Roman Temple, Roman Bath House and the Museum, which holds all findings from the site.

Royal Crescent and the Circus
If you want to be truly wowed by British architecture at its finest - and give the kids a sight they'll remember for years to come - these streets take the forms of a crescent and oval respectively, and offer the greatest examples of Georgian architecture in the UK.

Fashion Museum
People of all ages will be truly fascinated to see over 30,000 costume items on display; independent fashion experts who have contributed to the collection directly include Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen and Donatella Versace.

Bath Abbey
One of the most visually-impressive buildings in the whole of Bath is the Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, a landmark Anglican parish church and former Benedictine monastery. It was heavily restored in the 1860s by Sir George Gilbert Scott and is now one of the most stunning examples of Perpendicular Gothic architecture in the world.
