A row of thirty terraced houses placed together in a crescent, was built between the years 1767 and 1774 by John Wood the Younger. Every house was built with the same façade, but the rear of the houses is quite individual and reflects the character of those who lived and still live there.

The Roman Baths are a fascinating and must-see part of Bath, which will help you to understand why and how this area is steeped in history. 2,000 years ago the Romans bathed in the luxurious waters and left their mark when they built the amazing Baths and left relics and remnants of their life here.

Built over 1,200 years ago, Bath Abbey is a magnificent structure that welcomes thousands upon thousands of visitors every year.
