Groupon’s Guide To Bath
The spa city and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bath beckon with must-see attractions such as the Roman Baths, where a trio of natural springs have been bubbling and steaming for 2,000 years and counting.
Visitors may also admire a curved strip of remarkable Georgian façades, including a museum, and the Bath Abbey, built between the 12th and 16th centuries. A little further, visitors may find the 18th-century No. 1 Royal Crescent, a Georgian townhouse which paints a portrait of the city in its glory days, while a walk along the Brock Street brings travellers to another Georgian architectural masterpiece, the Circus.
