sightseeing in Bath CityIt is not that hard to figure out how Bath City in Great Britain got its name. The place is definitely the favoured location for some of the best bath houses way back in history. More than these leisure areas, there are many sights and places that you can enjoy when you visit the city.

As local businesses already expect an influx of tourists all throughout the year, it is easy to find a hotel in Bath City Centre. Right after you step in the city walls, you can get the feel of history with as it presents the remains of the Roman Empire in Georgian architecture. It is like boarding a time machine for a walk on the accounts found only in the books of history.

Thanks to the discovery of the Romans about the hot spring water of the city more than 2,000 years ago, you can now enjoy traditionally sophisticated baths. Although not all are still active, the Thermae Bath Spa developed their own to provide tourists the experience, including a rooftop view of the city.

Recreational Tourist Spots

Shopping has been part of the local culture even during the Georgian era. For souvenir items, you can shop a variety of things, including high street names, at the Milsom Street, Stall Street, Union Street, and the SouthGate shopping centre. Visit the Upper Town if you are eyeing for boutiques and vintage items.

The historic Bath City features rich art and culture sites. The Victoria Art Gallery and West End production at Theatre Royal are places to live for traditionalists because of the artworks dating from 15th century up to the present. The Ustinov Studio, on the other hand, contains more of the contemporary pieces.

Places to Eat and Drink

After a long day of strolling around the city, you can treat yourselves with the local delicacies. The Sally Lunn’s Refreshment House has some of the best buns, whilst the Pump Room presents an afternoon tea. If you are hungry enough for dinner, head straight to the Bath Priory Restaurant down on Weston Road.
