Bath is a city in Somerset in the south west of England. It is situated 99 miles (159 km) west of London and 13 miles (21 km) south-east of Bristol. The city was founded, among surrounding hills, in the valley of the River Avon around naturally-occurring hot springs where the Romans built baths and a temple, giving it the name Aquae Sulis. The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987, and has a variety of theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues, which have helped to make it a major centre for tourism, with over one million visitors.
England is a wondrous dichotomy. In one sense, it is a country determined to keep its traditions and revere its own millennial history. In another, it is a nation on the cutting edge of art, fashion and all things culturally significant.

Like the prettier sister, it’s hardly fair that England has been blessed with so many outstanding qualities.
Country lanes that meander without a real sense of direction; honey-hued stone cottages lit by a late afternoon sun; sheep-filled meadows in lush valleys framed in the fragrant white blossoms of hawthorn. This is what awaits you in the English Countryside.
