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

Nearby Bath Abbey watches over the town center while the Royal Crescent is the largest and most impressive of Bath’s residential crescents, which unfold in elegant arcs of honey-colored stone. Bath is also noted for its literary associations; the Jane Austen Centre celebrates its most famous resident. Numerous other small but fascinating museums cover everything from fashion to astronomy, while the lush green of gorgeous English parks provide outdoor diversion.

While an excellent destination in itself, Bath is also ideally situated to add on visits to other quintessentially English sites. Stonehenge was built around two and a half centuries before the Romans got to Bath, its original purpose lost in the mists of time and still wreathed in myths. It undoubtedly had some astronomical significance and modern-day druids still flock there to mark the solstice. Nearby Salisbury, with its magnificent cathedral, attracts more conventional worshippers or simply devotees of fine buildings.

The enormous castle which dominates Windsor dates back 900 years and remains an important royal residence to this day. Nonetheless you can still visit the recently restored state rooms and the St George Chapel, resting place of many British royals, including Henry VIII, George III and the late Queen Mother.

An ambitious but achievable itinerary for those who want more bang for their buck (or pound) also takes in Stratford-upon-Avon, home of the immortal bard as well as the breathtaking scenery of the Cotswolds and the dreaming spires of Oxford. And there you have the very best of England’s green and pleasant land.
