In the valley of the English river Avon in the ceremonial county of Somerset lies a beautiful old town with charming city centre, rich history and special rounded buildings. Its name originates from Roman baths which erupted at the beginning of Gregorian calendar time. Bath.

One of the fascinating things in Bath is The Circus. Originally called King’s Circus it is an example of Georgian architecture. It’s a spectacular circular space surrounded by large townhouses, divided into three segments of equal length. The feeling when you are surrounded with circular buildings is magnificent. There are beautiful apartment houses wherever you look. It’s a pity mankind is not building awe-inspiring buildings like this anymore.

Commonly know as The Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Bath Abbey is another breathtaking architectural masterpiece. It has the most incredible ceiling with gorgeous vaults. These are one of the most beautiful vaults I have ever seen. I was totally mesmerised by them… I could just watch them for hours.

To emphasise, Bath has amazing architecture that is not seen very often. Pulteney Bridge is an exclusive bridge with shops on it, semicircular The Royal Crescent, The Pump Room where Jane Austin wrote some of her novels and exquisite Assembly Rooms with Whitefriars crystal chandeliers.

But apart from its stunning Georgian architecture Bath is known for its Roman-built baths from 60 AD. I was in Bath just one day and the city vibe took me over. Even moody English weather didn’t ruin the experience. The one thing I didn’t do while in Bath was visiting the spa. I must admit I have been craving to visit one ever since I visited Bath so hopefully I will share some spa moments with you in the upcoming posts. 🙂
