Bath: Visit the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey in England

Here’s a throwback post to my trip in London in 2016. On one of our days in England, we visited Bath in a 1-day tour package.

Bath, about 97 miles (156 km) west of London or 90 miles west of Windsor Castle, is known for and named after its Roman-built baths. Bath is the largest city in the county of Somerset, England.

Bath Abbey

We stopped outside the Bath Abbey and admired this 7th century, medieval Gothic architecture. 

The Abbey is a Grade I listed building,particularly noted for its fan vaulting. The west front includes sculptures of angels climbing to heaven on two stone ladders, representing Jacob’s Ladder. The Abbey is built of Bath stone, which gives the exterior its yellow colour.

The Roman Baths

The Roman Baths are well-preserved thermae in the city of Bath, Somerset, England. The Roman Baths are preserved in four main features: the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House, and a museum which holds artefacts from Aquae Sulis. However, all buildings at street level date from the 19th century.
