Bath is of historical significance as a former Roman Spa town and has its own unique architecture. Located in Somerset, just 13 miles from Bristol, it has two universities, as well as a host of cultural sites including theatres, galleries and sporting venues. The main industries in the town are tourism, with 3.8 million visitors each year, as well as IT and creative industries.
Such is the popularity of the area that new developments sell quickly to a waiting list of families and young professionals keen to experience and best of “both worlds” life. Popular locations include Beckington, Oldfield Park and the outskirts of Bristol. The M4 and M5 are nearby and train services to London and the West Country are frequent and fast.
Bath is also at the forefront of the organic food wave with many people who live in the city keen to use good, local produce. They even had the first-ever farmer’s market in the UK.
