Bath (Somerset, southwest of Great Britain)

An ivory-colored city that you will fall in love with at first sight.

Charming ivory buildings distinguish Bath from other English towns and cities. Almost everything here is made of limestone quarried nearby. Thanks to the stone of this special color, the city was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

There is a majestic abbey here, next to which, in 1878, a large complex of Roman thermal baths built more than a thousand years ago was found. Later, Bath became a popular resort for the English aristocracy. Today, the official name of the town's train stop is Bath Spa, which further emphasizes the presence of thermal spas in this wonderful place.

This corner is also famous for its artificial castle. Outside the town, an aristocrat dared to build only the facade of the fortification just so that it could be seen from the windows of the town's residents and visitors.

What to see:

  • Pulteney Bridge;
  • Sally Lunn's house;

Over time, the importance of the religious building only grew.
