THE ROMAN CITY OF BATH
Cultural, Lunch not included

What we will see
- Pulteney Bridge
- Royal Crescent
- Roman baths
What we will do
- After leaving Portland, we will arrive in Bath, crossed by the river Avon. It was the first spa town in England and is recognisable by its elegant honey-coloured Georgian architecture.
- Strolling through the city, we will see Pulteney Bridge, built between 1769 and 1774, the only bridge in England with shops on both sides, three arches and a window in the middle in a Venetian style.
- Then, a visit to the Royal Crescent is a must. This residential complex consisting of 30 buildings laid out in a crescent shape is one of the most important examples of Georgian architecture in the United Kingdom.
- Next we will even have the chance to visit the famous Roman baths which gave the city its name. They were built in 43 AD to take advantage of the potential of the sulphur water that flowed naturally underground. They are no longer in operation today but a visit inside is an interesting journey back in time.
- There will also be some free time to have lunch and do a bit of shopping.
What you need to know
- The coach transfer from the port to Bath takes approximately 2 hours each way.
