During my stay in London, I went out with my friends to the city of Bath. Bath is a city in the county of Somerset, England. It is 97 miles (156 km) west of London.
I had always read about the city and its hot water springs, which was discovered in 836 BC by the British king Bladud. The city is famous for Roman Bath, a well preserved Roman site for public bathing, which was built in c AD 60 and for its Georgian architecture….. Royal Crescent, Circus, Pump Room and Assembly Room. Around the 18th century the city became fashion capital of England. Jane Austen the famous English novelist lived there in the early 19th century.
On our first day, we went around the city on foot saw the Royal Crescent, Victoria Garden The Circus, Bath Abbey, went to the Saracens Head a local pub (where Charles Dicken reputedly lived) had a few Guinness talked to the locals, went to Club XL. The following day, we saw the museum, the Pump House and tour the guided bus tour of the city of bath and the spectacular skyline tour and then around the evening we saw the rugby match between the teams of Bath and Bristol.
I really liked the city for its history, which was largely influenced by Roman’s, hot springs, Georgian architecture, natural beauty and for its stint with Jane Austin and Charles Dickens. (236 Words.)
