Bath

The best way to see the beautiful city of Bath is to take a leisurely stroll round the streets and wander through layers of history from Romans to the Middle Ages and Bath Abbey then on to the 1700s when the great, the good and the not so good came to take the waters, gamble and net a wealthy spouse. Bath is full of stunning buildings in honey coloured stone and I will make sure you see the highlights along with out of the way spots. Oh! and fill you in on lots of historical gossip.
