Student Life in Bath

Bath Overview


Bath is one of the most beautiful Georgian cities in the United Kingdom. The city was lucky enough to have had its streets and many of its buildings designed by an architectural genius. Bath was originally a Roman settlement well known for its hot mineral springs and today visitors can still see these well-preserved Roman baths during their time in Bath. But the city and its popularity shut up in the 18th century when Beau Nash showed London's elite the wonders of these springs. Bath became the trendy place for wealthy and powerful. The charm of Bath was well documented by popular authors of the time such as Jane Austen and Dickens. On top of the stunning architecture, the bridge over the Avon, a very beautiful abbey, and countless street performers and artists; it’s no wonder tourists flock here!

Despite the beauty of Bath, the thousands of tourists which come to the city every year can crowd up the pretty streets and upset the peace that attracts many of them.

The city offers great shopping, including many independent shops and boutiques, and many high street brands being well represented in the city centre. There are also three markets open daily if you are looking for something different. There is also an area of shopping especially for students. All of which are worth a browse. You also won’t find a shortage of wine-bars, pubs, restaurants and tea-rooms all along Bath's cobbled lined streets. The images of the city will be long remembered well after your visit here.
