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.

Historia de 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 volunteers were polite and helpful. The rooms were cheap and cheerful, but clean, and exactly what was required. The regular bus service into town was a huge plus, as was the excellent breakfast

I've stayed in Bath Uni accommodation before and intend doing so again. I only wish there were rooms in the winter months for the same cost. Excellent value.

(Comentarios de Eastwood Halls, Bath) Eastwood Halls, Bath

Very impressed. Excellent facilities in room. Ideally located if watching sport. Only improvement to suggest is that room door should automatically lock when door closed from outside. Would be easy to forget

All staff I met were very helpful and efficient. The building was surprisingly quietly situated, which was very pleasant. Everywhere was very clean. I would recommend the Bath university rooms to anyone as very good value accommodation.

We did have problems finding the correct accommodation block when arriving on the campus; perhaps a downloadable map could be available on line once a firm booking has been made?

(Comentarios de Woodland Court, Bath) Woodland Court, Bath

Comfy beds, long way to toilets on floor above. Oven in kitchen had all dials unlabelled due to so much use , so not very safe? Good for a single traveller, but 2rooms for 2 people not really good value . Good breakfast . library bus service.
