England Day 3.5 – City of Bath

After Stonehenge we drove to the city of Bath. Located 100 miles west of London, Bath was established by the Romans in AD 43 with a Latin name “Aquae Sulis” meaning the waters of Sulis. Edgar of England was crowned king of England in Bath Abbey in 973, it’s that incredible looking cathedral on the photo above. With it’s very unique architecture Bath served as a spa resort and later became the center of fashionable life in the 18th century.

Today Bath serves as one of England’s main tourist attractions welcoming some 3.8 million day visitors a year. It received a UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1987 and with over one hundred bars and restaurants hidden among architecture hundreds of years old it is a very pleasant city to walk around and relax.
