Fast facts: The Circus is the exact same diameter as Stonehenge. It is said that the orientation of Stonehenge is built around the rising and setting sun, with The Circus also said to represent the sun. Could this be a coincidence?
The circular architectural landmark with beautiful Georgian homes and the ever lovely hotel are well worth a visit. Used as a backdrop to plenty of film and TV series, and home to many notorious people through the years, you have to visit here just to take in the sheer scale and beautifulness of this prestigious Bath landmark.
Bath houses one of the finest thermal spas in the world; no wonder the Romans loved it so much! The ruins and treasures have been well preserved in the World Heritage Site, across four different sections. While you are here, don’t forget to pop down to the ground floor for a taste of the fresh hot spa water in the Georgian Pump Room.
Bath has its very own Abbey located in the middle of the city centre, dating back to 1499. This spot had been previously housed by an Anglo-Saxon Abbey, dating back to 757, as well as a Norman Cathedral which was founded in 1090. Join a guided tour to truly understand and see the Abbey from a different perspective.
Pulteney Bridge is a must see when you’re visiting Bath. A beautiful historic bridge that crosses the River Avon, it is best viewed from the Parade Gardens to take it in, in its entirety.
If you fancy having a picnic or taking in some nature while in the city then there are three parks for you to choose from. Royal Victoria Park has a beautiful Botanic Garden, Georgian Gardens have been recreated to illustrate how a Georgian garden would have looked, and Sydney Gardens is the oldest garden in Bath - all equally good for a stroll.
