Bath Spa - A World Heritage City
I have recently returned from a short stay in Bath Spa, what an amazing place. The surrounding seven hills and the Bath Abbey towers certainly create a stunning impression on arrival. Bath is compact and easily accessible, I managed to shop and visit some of the main sites in one day.
Bath is famous for its Roman Baths, romantic riverside and elegant Georgian architecture, and boasts some of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces in Europe. The Royal Crescent, the Circus, the Abbey, the Pump Room and the Assembly Rooms are all essential places to visit.
If you enjoy visiting art galleries or museums, there are as many as seventeen and the Victoria Art Gallery hosts one of the best programmes of temporary exhibitions in the region. Other galleries hold collections including East Asian Art, sculpture and ceramics. Bath's museums cover subjects as diverse as costume and antique books and the Jane Austen Centre tells the tale of the city's most famous resident.
There are a vast selection of restaurants including Thai, Nepalese, French, Italian/Sardinian and Moroccan to name a few. I decided to sample the Moroccan cuisine at "Cafe Du Globe & Restaurant" which I highly recommend.
If you are planning a long weekend away and would like to soak up some amazing architecture and sites then why not plan a trip to Bath Spa, you will be pleasantly surprised. Fortunately for me I have a friend already residing in this beautiful city and can visit whenever I need a quick get away.
