Bath Salisbury & Cotswolds 5 Days Limpley Stoke Ht
Standing majestically on the banks of the River Avon and steeped in ancient history, Bath has a magnetic splendour which fully justifies its title "The Elegant City of Golden Stone". It achieved prosperity as a spa town in Roman times, when it was dedicated to the Goddess Minerva, and boasts The Great Bath (at 70ft. in length), supplied with water from a hot spring which still flows through Roman plumbing. It was in the 1750s when the famous golden stone was used to build a magnificent Georgian city, which retains its refined architectural grace even today. Bath is famous for its literary associations and was home to both the playwright Sheridan and Jane Austen who set many scenes in her books here. As well as a spectacular gothic abbey, the famous Royal Crescent, the magnificent Pulteney Bridge, the elegant Parade and Sydney Gardens and a veritable plethora of museums from which to choose, the streets of Bath are lined with shops old and new to browse at your leisure.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
