Bath City: Bath is a city in Somerset in the south west of England. It is situated 99 miles (159 km) west of London and 13 miles (21 km) south-east of Bristol. The population of the city is about 80,000. It was granted city status by Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590, and was made a county borough in 1889 which gave it administrative independence from its' county, Somerset.
The city was founded, among surrounding hills, in the valley of the River Avon around naturally-occurring hot springs where the Romans built baths and a temple, giving it the name Aquae Sulis. Edgar was crowned the first king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Much later it became popular as a spa resort during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987.

Car: Not Necessary
This is an entire region of fascinating depth and historical context. The area has varied geography including river valleys and rolling hills. The history of human habitation is long but expanded massively during Roman times, and played significant roles in the Saxon era and English civil war. Industry developed from a largely agricultural basis to include coal mining with the coming of canals and railways. Bath itself developed as a spa resort in Georgian times and remains a major cultural tourism centre having gained World Heritage City status.
Batheaston was named Estone in the Domesday Book and is overlooked by Solsbury Hill which is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and was an Iron Age hill fort occupied between 300 BC and 100 BC. It is also linked to Bathampton on the south bank of the river via a toll bridge. Near the river crossing is the site of a Roman villa. Elsewhere in secluded St Catherine’s valley is the Tudor manor house, St Catherine's Court.
There are many places to visit including tithe barns, ancient churches, pristine villages and the Cotswold Way. The West Country features not only the amazing city of Bath, but Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury and Glastonbury. Longleat Safari Park and many National Trust country houses are less than one hour by car.
