The city of Bath is a World Heritage Site located in South West England. It is situated 97 miles west of London and 13 miles south-east of Bristol. The city was first established as a spa by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s. They built a temple to Minerva and a bathing complex around whose ruins still stand today. The town became popular as a spa town during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a vast heritage of Georgian architecture exemplarly crafted from Bath stone.
The city has a variety of theatres and other cultural and sporting venues. The city holds several festivals every year such as the Bath International Music Festival, Mozartfest , the Bath Film Festival, Bath Literature Festival (and its counterpart for children), the Bath Fringe Festival and the Bath Beer Festival.
The city is also home to multiple museums, among them the Victoria Art Gallery, the Museum of East Asian Art, the Holburne Museum of Art, the Bath Postal Museum, the Fashion Museum, the Jane Austen Centre, the Herschel Museum of Astronomy and the Roman Baths, as well as numerous commercial art galleries and antique shops. Bath also houses several historic sights, like the Royal Crescent and the Circus, two examples of striking Georgian architecture designed by John Wood the younger and John Wood the elder respectively. There is also the splendid Bath Abbey, a fifteenth century medieval church, and the Pulteney Bridge.
There are also plenty of bars and pubs in Bath city centre, many of which serve locally produced drinks. Below is a map of the city centre showing the location of many pubs in and around the city centre, so as you can see you will never have to go thirsty. The Salamander (on John St) and the Assembly Inn (on Alfred St) are two of Bath's pub that offer a fine choice of local beers.
