The World Heritage City of Bath in the English unitary authority of Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) positioned at the southern extremeties of the Cotswolds is a spectacularly beautiful city. The city’s compactness and striking architecture - Roman baths, majestic Abbey and sweeping Georgian terraces - combine to produce one of the most elegant sights in Europe.
The city, however, is far more than museums and old buildings. It has a lively cultural scene with several festivals and all kinds of shows, concerts and exhibitions filling up the events calendar. Being a university town, it also has a vibrant nightlife, and the dining scene equals that of almost any other British city.
Despite the fact that Bath is a sprawling city, the center is compact and easy to navigate on foot
Bath is known for its Georgian classical architecture and its development as a Roman city called 'Aquae Sullis'. The presence of hot springs and easily worked limestone made it attractive to the Romans who built the original town which flourished for 400 years.
Bath declined quickly after the Romans left Britain and did not thrive again until the eighteenth century when once again it was water and stone that made it great but this time of Georgian influenced architecture.
Throughout the Georgian period 1714 - 1830, Bath was the focal point of out-of-London social activity. Royalty, the aristocracy and commoners all bathed in the spa waters, which were made popular by the visit of Queen Anne in 1702. The population multiplied from 2,000 to 30,000 in just 100 years and Bath became the eighth largest city in England by 1801.
The development of the spa town of Bath, can be essentially attributed to three men: Ralph Allen - Post Master, John Wood the Elder - architect and Richard Beau Nash.
Bath is a city steeped in history and has the only hot spring in Britain. The city has more officially listed (5000) buildings than central London and most originate from the 18th century.
The city is particularly famed for its Roman Baths (also its magnificent Abbey) - the spa Aquae Sullis (‘waters of Sul’ – the British goddess of wisdom) was constructed about 54 AD and was abandoned when the Romans left Britain at the beginning of the 5th century. It was not until the 18th century that it was rediscovered and its potential benefits once again realised.
It was in this period that most of the developments took place and a large part of what can be seen today has its origins in Georgian times.
Amongst the architects with the most influenceThomas Baldwin (1750-1820) has left a huge legacy. He built the Guildhall, The Northumberland Buildings, The Cross Bath, The Old Pump Room, New Private Baths, Nash Street, Union Street, Hot Bath Street and much more besides.
Also responsible for design was Thomas Warr Attwood(1733-1775) he was an Architect and also a Mayor of Bath, he worked closely with Thomas Baldwin. Attwood was the cause of much controversy when he proposed the building of a new gaol. He died when on the site of a derelict building which collapsed on him.
John Palmer (1738-1817) succeeded Thomas Baldwin as city architect in 1792, he was involved in the building of many properties which included - Landsdown Crescent, Cumberland House, Stall Street, St. James Square, Christ Church Bath, Theatre Royal, New Bond Street, the further development of the Grand Pump Room and The Royal Mineral Water Hospital.
Among the many sights to be seen within the city is its superb Bath Abbey Church of St Peter and St Paul, The Roman Baths, The Pump Room, The Theatre Royal, Victoria Park, Pulteney Bridge, Victoria Art Gallery, The Royal Crescent, Orange Grove, Bath Postal Museum, The Circus and The Fashion Museum.
