Bath-nestling in 7 hills between the Mendips and the Cotswolds, in South West England. The city is an masterpiece of Georgian architecture. Rightly so on every UK tourists 'must see' destination list. By the 17th century Bath had become a fashionable resort, 'taking of the waters' being particularly popular.Today the population of Bath is 85,000. Many of Bath's finest buildings were constructed in the next 150 years. Pulteney Bridge (1774), designed by Robert Adam is one such example. Downstream of the Bridge is a park, with a bandstand and superb flower displays in Summer.Visit Thermae Bath Spa, bath in the warm mineral rich waters. Visit Glastonbury-with its myths, legends, abbey ruins -a place of pilgrimage.
