“Bath is a city in the ceremonial county of Somerset in the south west of England. It is situated 97 miles (156 km) west of London and 13 miles (21 km) south-east of Bristol. The population of the city is 83,992. The city was first established as a spa by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s about 20 years after they had arrived in Britain (AD43), although verbal tradition suggests that Bath was known before then. They built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs. Edgar was crowned king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Much later, it became popular as a spa town during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.” – Wikipedia.
Now let me guide you around this amazing city through my very own eyes, this is actually my second visit to date, I love revisiting places I’ve been to as there will always be some hidden nook and cranny which I might have missed. My other half remarked how I’m beginning to resemble a British Tourism Board staff these days, but I beg to differ, as I view things through my Eastern eyes, not necessarily encompassing everything that might interest a Westerner. Does that make any sense? Right, enough of my chattering I think, let’s begin, shall we? I’ve chosen some of the highlights from my recent visit to share with you here, obviously I have plenty of images altogether as I just love taking photos especially of wonderful historical places such as Bath. Hope you’ll like them!
