The presence of hot springs for thousands of years made Bath one of the most famous spas in England, starting with the Romans in 43 AD. It still thrives as a spa resort, but it may be Bath's history and sights that bring the most people to visit the city. If you are on holiday in London and would like to see the stunning architecture of Bath, there are several guided tours from London to Bath.

These tours take in many other areas on your way to Bath, like Stonehenge and Shakespeare's home in Stratford-upon-Avon. Once in Bath you'll be able to see the city's beauty. The architectural designs of the Georgian buildings here include decorative crescents and terraces overlooking the streets of Bath.

These tours allow for plenty of time to explore places like the Bath Abbey and see the lovely Pulteney Bridge that looks out over the Avon River as it pours over the dam. You can also enjoy shopping or tea in the Pump Room. Inside the Roman Baths a guide dressed authentically as a Roman Legionnaire will explain to you what Bath was like for the Romans.

If you'd rather venture to Bath on your own, a perfect method of sightseeing around the city is to use the hop-on-hop-off open top bus system. These buses have continuous on board commentary and travel to the main attractions around Bath. Hop off at spots you'd like to explore further and hop back on anywhere along the route.
