The city of Bath, located in the Avon Valley, lies at the southern edge of the Cotswolds which are a range of limestone hills which have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hills that the city lies on and are surrounded by have a maximum altitude of just under 800 feet.
The geothermal springs that rise up through the ground in the city, fell as rain in the Mendip Hills. The water percolates through the limestone aquifers at a depth of around 10,000 feet. At it as this depth that geothermal energy heats the water to a temperature of between 64 and 96 degrees centigrade (147 - 205 degreed Fahrenheit). As the water is under pressure it rises to the surface along fissures and fractures in the limestone rock.
The city of Bath has five theatres: Bath Theatre Royal, Ustinov Studio, the egg, the Rondo Theatre and the Mission Theatre. Between them they attract internationally celebrated companies and directors along with an annual season by Sir Peter Hall. Bath Abbey, home to the Klais Organ and the largest concert venue in the city, stages about 20 concerts and 26 organ recitals each year. The art deco Forum, which was originally a cinema, is another concert venue in the city and has a capacity of 1,700.
