Few cities compare to Bath when it comes to sheer elegance. The architecture is renowned – think the sweeping Georgian townhouse-lined Circus and Royal Crescent, as well as the stained-glassed abbey. Quaint cafes and independent boutiques housed in handsome stone buildings flank the narrow-cobbled streets.

While there are several remarkable places to visit, including the Victoria Art Gallery and the Museum of East Asian Art, many come to bathe in the hot springs that have been in use since the Romans founded the city almost 2,000 years ago. Bath also serves as the gateway to the rolling green hills of Somerset, home to the Longleat Safari Park and the ancient sites of Stonehenge and Avebury.
