9. From Birmingham: Stonehenge & Bath Day Tour
As you travel, hear interesting facts about the region and your first destination — the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain. On arrival, enjoy time to explore this atmospheric site at leisure. Head inside, collect an informative audio guide and ride the shuttle or follow the pathways to the UNESCO-listed stones that date back some 4,500 years. What you can see in Bath: 1. Pulteney Bridge This is an architectural monument that you cannot miss. Built around 250 years ago, Paltney Bridge is in the heart of Bath. Similar to the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, along the Ponte Paltni are a bunch of buildings that house shops. It is considered unique, so the best recommendation for city guests is to take a walk from the bridge and along the river embankment. 2. Bath Abbey (Bath Abbey) Bath Abbey is an Anglican parish church and former Benedictine monastery in Bath, Somerset, England. Founded in the 7th century, it was reorganized in the 10th century and rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries. 3. Green Street (Green Street) If you want to go shopping, Green Street is perfect for you. Yes, it's quite small in size, but the streets and surrounding areas are full of independent shops and stalls that call this area home. Also close to Green Street are the Jane Austen Center and The Raven pub, where you can dine on classic British dishes. 4. Royal Crescent and the Circus (Royal Crescent and the Circus) The Royal Crescent was built around 250 years ago and is considered one of the finest Georgian buildings to be seen in Britain. You can walk around the crescent and go down Brock Street to the circus. Built by John Wood the Elder, the Circus is a replica (in circle size) of Stonehenge. The reason for this is that, according to Wood, this area of England was one of the most important places in the world for the Druids. That is why the dimensions correspond to the dimensions of Stonehenge and are preserved to this day. 5. The Roman Baths Built nearly 2,000 years ago Britain's only natural hot water spring lies the magnificent Roman public bath complex and Roman temple. Your ticket includes entrance to the Roman Baths 6. The Jane Austen Centre The Jane Austen Centre is a permanent exhibition. Situated in an original Georgian townhouse, it tells the story of Jane’s time in Bath, including the effect that living here had on her and her writing.
