The Romans established the City of Bath in AD 43 and this city, awash with architecture, history and culture has made Bath travel a priority when visiting England. Many of this city's great buildings date back from its renaissance in the 18th century when it again became a fashionable spa town and played host to royalty and the cream of aristocracy, who travelled to Bath to 'take the waters'.

Today Bath travel attractions include a walk around the old Roman Baths, to enjoy the splendour of Bath Abbey or simply take in the breathtaking Georgian architecture of this beautiful city.  For an authentic feel of life gone by, period decorations and furniture have been reinstated in No1 Royal Crescent, so that the house appears as it might have been as a fine 18th-century townhouse.

Though most travel to Bath for its architecture as its seen as something of a period piece, it is also a very modern city; its restaurants and pavement cafés packed full of local businessmen and artisans making it a destination not to be missed.

The International Music Festival marks the beginning of summer and adds to Bath's lively, festive atmosphere and its Theatre Royal is one of the country's leading provincial theatres, attracting big names and pre-West End runs.

Anytime is a good time to visit Bath. Summer July-September is the busiest and prices can be higher. The best time to travel to Bath is late spring May and June with English gardens in full bloom.  Winter is probably the least busy.

* Note: Room prices change constantly. You should check the latest availability as in many cases the room price can be even lower than the listed price on the LastBeds website.
