Bath Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryWhile crinolines and tall hats are not actually local costume, it’s hard to gaze at the elegant curves of Nash’s Regency crescents without images of Jane Austen novels leaping to mind. In fact, the Romans got there rather earlier than Miss Austen – its Latin name Aquae Sulis referring to the natural hotsprings healthy-water properties that brought Georgian English fashionable society many centuries later. In between, the Normans founded the magnificent Bath Abbey. The original baths have been restored, the wonderful architecture preserved, ‘Sally Lunn’ teacakes can still be bought. And the M4 gets you there rather quicker than Miss Austen’s two-day coach journey.
