The City of Bath
Bath is a small city which is easy to explore on foot, and it is also large enough to have two universities and a number of theatres, cinemas, museums and art galleries. Bath College is in the centre of Bath, and so is only a few minutes walk from the shops, the train and bus stations, and the beautiful old buildings located all around the city. Bath attracts many visitors, artists and musicians to its international events, such as the music and literary festivals. The city is a shopper’s paradise with familiar large stores and a wide variety of small specialist shops.
About two million people visit Bath each year to see its magnificent architecture, ancient Roman Baths, famous abbey and extensive parks. Bath has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, reflecting the importance of its history and buildings.
Bath is in the south-west of England, about 80 minutes by train from London. It is easily accessible by train and bus from Heathrow Airport and Bristol Airport. Bath is only 12 miles from the busy city of Bristol with its theatres, shopping malls and busy nightlife, and it is also surrounded by beautiful countryside and fascinating small villages for those who also like quieter pastimes.
