Tourist Information

The nearest source of local information is available from Bath Tourist Information Centre.

Bath is a city in northeast Somerset with a current population of about 84,000. The city has a wealth of attractions and is one of the main visitor attractions in the whole southwest.

Bath as a settlement dates from antiquity. There have been Mesolithic (Stone Age) archaeolgical remains found nearby and was a centre for the Iron Age Britons who were drawn to the area by its geothermal springs, dedicating the spring to their goddess Sulis. Some centuries later, in the time of the Roman occupation, the settlement was known as Aquae Sulis - which translates to 'the waters of Sulis'. Bath was granted city status by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590 and grew again as an important spa town in Georgian times. The City of Bath was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987.

Today, the city is a blend of several architectural styles and is an important tourist centre. Each year over 1 million visitors stay in Bath, whilst close to 4 million people just come to visit for the day.
