Bath Besucherinformationen für Gäste

An Introduction to Bath

Bath is a city in Somerset in the south west of England, situated 97 miles west of London. The city was founded in the valley of the River Avon around naturally occurring hot springs where the Romans built baths and a temple, giving it the name Aquae Sulis. It became popular as a spa resort during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone. There is much to see and do in this small, accessible city. The Roman Baths, the Abbey and the exquisite 18th Century Pulteney Bridge are just a few of the city’s historic sites. The city centre also enjoys a vast array of shops, restaurants and pubs.

Geschichte von Bath

The city of Bath has attracted visitors since Roman times. It is famed for its curative waters, for which the city is named, along with its spectacular Georgian architecture, magnificently displayed in the famous Royal Crescent. Around Britain's only hot spring, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. See the water's source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements. The extensive ruins and treasures from the spring are beautifully preserved and presented using the best of modern interpretation.

Begun in 1499, Bath Abbey is the last of the great medieval churches of England. The West Front is unique as it depicts the dream that inspired the Abbey's founder, Bishop Oliver King, to pull down the ruined Norman cathedral and raise the present building on its foundations. Over the past twelve and a half centuries, three different churches have occupied the site of today’s Abbey. The present Abbey church founded in 1499, ruined after the dissolution of the monasteries in 1539 by order of Henry VIII, was completed in 1611. Worship has taken place on the site of today's Abbey for over one thousand years and continues to this day with services taking place throughout the entire week.
Bath became the leading centre of fashionable life in England during the 18th century. It was during this time that Bath's Theatre Royal was built, as well as architectural developments such as Lansdown Crescent, the Royal Crescent, The Circus and Pulteney Bridge.

One of Bath’s most famous inhabitants was Jane Austen and Charles Dickens was a frequent visitor, setting much of Pickwick Papers there. Britain’s youngest Prime Minister, William Pitt the Younger, is said to have visited the Baths to remedy the gout that plagued him most of his life.

The University

The University of Bath received its Royal Charter in 1966. It has established a strong reputation in teaching and research, being consistently placed as one of the top elite universities in national university league tables.

With plenty of parking, easy access and prompt service at check in, I found the overall service to be excellent. The facilities met with my requirements very well and I would recommend to others looking at a short stay in and around Bath.

(Review Of Polden, Bath) Polden, Bath

It would be very useful to send out with the booking information a detailed map of the campus, as it took be 25mins to find out where Woodland Court was, I had to ask about 5 people before I was directed to the East Car park. Once there everything was very good, with a great breakfast at the Sports Village. Thanks, Rex

(Review Of Woodland Court, Bath) Woodland Court, Bath

I was a little dissapointed that there were no pots and pans in the kitchen. I can understand that there wouldn't be any there for the students but as there was no places to eat on Campus with the Parade bar being closed it would have been nice to cook a few bits and pieces in the evening.

Got the door key from the accommodation centre but someone has already occupied the room (D1.11). A bit confused with the electronic room allocation system. Little embrassed as there was a lady opened the door while I used the room key to open her door successfully. Other than this, all is well.

(Review Of The Quads, Bath) The Quads, Bath

Excellent value for money, very recommendable and would book again for sure. Also note the excellent bus connexions with BATH both in frequency and time.

(Review Of Woodland Court, Bath) Woodland Court, Bath

The only problem here was that there was no provision of feminine hygiene disposal bins in the toilet. Otherwise, the accommodation was convenient and very quiet and comfortable.

(Review Of Eastwood Halls, Bath) Eastwood Halls, Bath

Only problem was in the the first week out of the two toilets for a few days only one had toilet roll which is a bit of a pain. Apart from that the place is great value for money especially if there for a stay of more than a night or two you're happy cooking for yourself. Good kitchen facilities.

I was very pleased with all aspects of our stay, from the warm welcome given by the reception staff to the cleanliness of the room. I will certainly consider staying again, and will recommend to others.
