Freebase

  1. Bath

    Bath is a city in the ceremonial county of Somerset in South West England. It is situated 97 miles west of London and 13 miles south-east of Bristol. At the 2001 census, the population of the city was 83,992. It was granted city status by Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590, and was made a county borough in 1889 which gave it administrative independence from its county, Somerset. The city became part of Avon when that county was created in 1974. Since 1996, when Avon was abolished, Bath has been the principal centre of the unitary authority of Bath and North East Somerset. The city was first established as a spa with the Latin name, Aquae Sulis by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s about 20 years after they had arrived in Britain, although oral tradition suggests that Bath was known before then. They built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs. Edgar was crowned king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Much later, it became popular as a spa town during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.
