This city has been a world famous spa and resort since the time of the Roman Empire. Today, Bath continues to be a magnet for people looking to relax. You’ll find theaters, museums and sporting venues that keep this intimate but vibrant town a great draw for millions of visitors every year. It also has two universities and a technology hub that demonstrate Bath isn’t just celebrating its storied past but also looking towards the future.
Bathonians enjoy a vibrant arts culture, with major festivals surrounding film, theater, music and beer, to name just a few. Truly other than London – just 97 miles away – no city in the UK can match the cultural heights of Bath.
Parts of the Oscar-winning “Les Miserables” were shot in Bath, which also scored high on a recent Google poll. That survey of UK subjects named the most picturesque streets in the UK (its Royal Crescent street placed second) and the UK’s Best Fashion Street, where Bath’s Milsom Street scored first.
