Books about Bath, England

About the city of Bath, Somerset.

Located in the Avon Valley near the southern edge of the Cotswolds, Bath is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Its interesting history dates from the Iron Age, through development during Roman times then much activity in the Medieval period. It was granted city status by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590.

One of Bath's attractions as a tourist destination is its beautiful architecture.

In addition to the Roman sites remaining in the city, such as the Roman baths (above), there are also many Georgian buildings made from the local golden-coloured Bath Stone.

One of the most photographed places in Bath is the Royal Crescent (below), designed by the younger John Wood and built 1767-1774.

As Bath has long been associated with music and the arts, the great wealth of theatres, museums and festivals of performing arts is no surprise.

Bath University (est.1966, Sunday Times 'University of the Year' 2011), Bath College, Bath Spa University, and Norland College (est. 1892, specialist in childcare training) provide higher education across a wide range of academic disciplines.
