About Bath

Welcome to Bath - A city famous for it's fascinating history, it's beautiful Georgian architecture and it's Roman remains. The traveller James Boswell who visited the city in the 18th century said "Bath is the finest place on earth, for you may enjoy its society and its walks without effort or fatigue." He was right, for Bath is one of the easiest Cities to explore, with a compact centre of broad main streets linked by narrow traffic free lanes. The streets are lined with beautiful historic buildings and pretty shops, and everything you may wish to see is within walking distance, making Bath a true peoples city, and without a skyscraper in sight. If walking is not your thing, Bath has a number of bus tours that are running constantly all day so you can sit back and enjoy the sights of Bath from your seat as a tour guide tells you all about what you are seeing. Planning your visit to Bath is essential with so much to see around every corner it is easy to miss something as you stroll around with so much catching your eye. Here at Pictures of England.com we list all the essential things to see, showing you great pictures and providing you with detailed history of this truly gorgeous city.
