Cotswold Way - Bath

The city of Bath sits at the southern end of the Cotswold Way. It was granted city status by Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590. The city was first established as a spa with the name, Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s although oral tradition suggests that Bath was known before then.  Edgar was crowned king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. During the Georgian period, it became popular as a spa town, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of fine Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.  The City of Bath was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1987. There are a variety of theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues, as well as restaurants, shops hotels and B&B’s.
