Tours to Bath
First of all, the city of Bath is described as one of the most magnificent places to visit in the South West of England. The town of Bath is also a fabulous city, especially with the beautiful countryside surrounding it.
Bath was founded in the Middle Ages by the Romans as a thermal spa and became an important wool industry centre. In addition, it became an elegant city with neoclassical buildings in the Palladian period in the 18th century under George III and harmoniously blended with Roman Baths.
Therefore, Bath is the real turning point–it just can lift your spirits by walking along its World Heritage streets. Georgian architecture is not only photogenic and warm, but also sunny, with sweeping crescents and terraced Circus turning your head. The most significant attraction, the Roman Baths, cleverly exploits the ancient foundations of the city, while the words of Jane Austen, a former resident, shed new life on history.
Bath is also a great student-friendly city; it is a rather safe and not a too large city to get around easily.

So, it’s the perfect place for learning and being inspired. There are so many things to see and do, from museums, galleries and theatres to bars, restaurants and clubs.
