Full Description
The magnificent historic city of Bath - home to sweeping crescents in honeyed stone, restorative thermal waters, and beautiful boutiques - is no stranger to those who seek to explore its manifold charms. Most are only intrigued by the obvious: the Roman Baths, the Pulteney Bridge, the Royal Crescent, the Circus. But for the more inquisitive there are countless hidden gems to discover. Pick up this book and explore Bath's best-kept secrets - stories, locations, and unique personalities from the past and present, who have been neglected by the conventional tourist routes. In these pages you'll take a bespoke detour off the well-beaten path to unearth unexpected treasures: from secret statues and characterful pubs to artists' studios and Georgian ballrooms, from memorials paying homage to lesser-known figures who left their indelible mark on the city to treats for foodies and fashionistas. Make your own gin, weave a scarf, tell the time with a stylish personal sundial, play 'shove ha'penny', bind your own book - or head beyond the city fringes, just a short hop by bike, punt, barge, or steam train, for a fresh perspective on this picture-perfect metropolis. The possibilities are endless. Whether you're a first-timer, a frequent visitor or a native who has 'seen it all', here are 111 things you never thought you'd see in Bath.
