City of Bath
Rear of Bath abbey
The Royal Crescent is a street of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent in the city of Bath, England.
Designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774,
it is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom and is a Grade I listed building.
Although some changes have been made to the various interiors over the years, the Georgian stone façade remains much as it was when it was first built.

St Michaels, Bath Parish Church.
St. Michael, Broad Street. At the sharp corner with Walcot Street and in the point de vue up Northgate Street.
The church is of medieval original and lay originally ante muros. The present church is of 1835-7, by G. P. Manners.
Its immediate predecessor dated from 1742 and had a dome (Collinson).
Manner’s church displays a crazy W tower, tall and narrow with a huge group of three stepped lancet arches, buttresses with the stepped-set offs of Wells,
and at the top a tall octagonal open lantern with spire. The tower is flanked by polygonal porches. The sides have the same buttresses and the same group of lancets.
A “hall-church” inside, that is with aisles the same height as the nave. Thin tall circular piers with four attached shafts. Quadripartite plaster rib-vaulting.
Polygonal apse with tall blank arcading. – PAINTING. Two panels attributed to William Hoare and Rombinson.

THE ROMAN BATHS
The Roman Baths complex is a site of historical interest in the English city of Bath. The house is a well-preserved Roman site for public bathing.
The Roman Baths themselves are below the modern street level. There are four main features: the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House and the Museum holding finds from Roman Bath. The buildings above street level date from the 19th century.
The Baths are a major tourist attraction and, together with the Grand Pump Room, receive more than one million visitors a year, with 1,037,518 people during 2009. It was featured on the 2005 TV programSeven Natural Wonders as one of the wonders of the West Country. Visitors can see the Baths and Museum but cannot enter the water. An audio guide is available in several languages.
In 2009 a grant of £90,000 was made to Bath and North East Somerset Council to contribute towards the cost of re-developing displays and improving access to the Roman Baths, by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport/Wolfson Fund, which was established to promote improvements in Museums and Galleries in England
