The World Heritage City of Bath is famous for its Roman baths and Georgian splendour, but has plenty to offer foodies and shoppers too.

Bath Christmas MarketIt is easy to see why Bath is a World Heritage City. Marvel at the Roman Baths, enjoy elegant afternoon teas in the Pump Room or explore the Georgian splendour of the Royal Crescent. Shop till you drop or visit the Jane Austen Museum. The City of Bath truly has something for everyone.

The Romans first established the city as a spa in AD 43, although it was called Aquae Sulis (‘the waters of Sulis’) at the time. They built temples and baths in and around Bath’s hot springs.

Edgar was crowned king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Bath was granted city status by Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590. Bath became a popular spa town during the Georgian era and as a result has many fine examples of Georgian architecture.

Bath is only a 30 minute drive from Nunney, making Nunney the perfect base from which to explore Bath, Stonehenge, Wells and the many other attractions the West Country has to offer.
