Day trip to Bath from London & Jane Austen festival
As you might expect from a place called Bath, this city is famous for its water. Its naturally hot spring water made it a favourite with the Romans, who built, of course, some baths. It’s also the backdrop to some of Jane Austen’s famous novels. Put all that together, and you’ve got a World Heritage Site. The 2018 Jane Austen Festival – Ten wonderful days of celebrating all things Austen in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath. There is a Mini-Promenade from Bath Abbey on Sunday from 12.30 pm. Ready to explore? Here’s what we will discover in Bath for a day. These Roman baths have been one of the most visited places in Britain for more than 2,000 years. Go to see the Great Bath, the Roman Temple, and to taste the mineral-packed spa water which comes out of a special water fountain.The Beau Street Hoard is also worth seeing. That’s the 17, 577 Roman coins that were found under the new Gainsborough Hotel in 2007. Walk all the way around the Royal Crescent. Bath is probably most famous for its Georgian crescents. You might recognise the Royal Crescent from period dramas, but even if you’re not a fan of those, you’ll probably like the views of Royal Victoria Park. Known as the best address in Bath, No 1 Royal Crescent was opened as the museum in 2013. The Assembly rooms, that was the entertainment centre of Georgian times, where you could dance, drink tea, play cards or just “be seen”. Option to visit an art gallery, the museum of Bath architecture, the American museum. The day trip start at 8.30 am pick up by minibus in front of Double tree by Hilton hotel, Victoria station.
