Day 1:  London to Bath (By Train)

Bath is one of the great treasures of Britain and at just 97 miles (156 kilometres) from London, it makes a perfect 3-day trip.

Harmony and proportion were of supreme importance to the Georgian architects who determined the current shape of Bath, and they often drew inspiration from classical styles. Luckily outstanding examples were close at hand, with ancient Roman ruins recalling Bath’s age-old reputation as a spa town from which it also derived its name.
