Things to Do Near Our Bath Luxury Hotel
As one of the finest hotels near Bath Spa, we could not overlook the Roman Baths. The Roman Baths are possibly what Bath is best known for, and they are certainly the city’s most ancient feature. The site has drawn interest for centuries due to the natural hot spring that exists there, and the first monument to be built on the site of the baths was erected by the Celts as far back as the Iron Age. However, it was the Romans (hence the name) that really embraced the hot springs and made them into something spectacular. Nowadays the Roman Baths make a wonderful stop on your tour of the beautiful city of Bath. You can admire the exquisite architecture of the Georgian portico, and the amazing milky green-blue waters of the baths themselves. Find out all about the history of the Baths, and how to make the most of your visit here.
Another famous landmark synonymous with the city is the Royal Crescent. With its sweeping curved façade made of unmistakably honey tinted bath stone, it is truly a sight to behold. The Royal Crescent is a horseshoe shaped row of 30 terraced houses that looks out over Bath’s Victoria Park. Designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, the crescent is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture remaining in the United Kingdom and is a Grade I listed building. It makes the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll, or a sunny picnic on the adjacent public lawns.
One facet of Bath’s character that we certainly could not overlook is the fantastic shopping! Take a day to meander through the beautiful bath stone buildings of South Gate and the Milsom Quarter. With plenty of high end and high street shops as well as a plethora of independent shops and cafes- you will be spoiled for choice! Find out all about Bath’s shopping here.
