The city of Bath in Somerset in the south west of England is perhaps most famous for its Roman Baths and for its architecture particularly Lansdown Crescent, the Royal Crescent, The Circus and Pulteney Bridge. The city is approximately 100 miles to the west of London and 15 miles to the south east of Bristol.
The city became a spa with the Latin name Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") at around AD 60 when the Romans built the baths and a temple in the city. The city became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. However, there is more to the city than its baths and architecture. The city's theatres, museums and other cultural and sporting venues are major draws for over 4 million visitors each year.
Royal Victoria Park, which is a short walk from the city centre, was opened in 1830 by Princess Victoria (later Queen Victoria) and was the first park to carry her name. The park is overlooked by the Royal Crescent and covers around 23 hectares. Contained within the park is a skate park, tennis courts, bowling green, a putting green, two golf courses, a children's play area and an open air concert venue.
The city of Gloucester is located in the county of Gloucestershire and lies close to the border with Wales. The city, which also lies on the River Severn, has a rich past dating back to Roman times. At the heart of the city, and standing in College Green, is the Norman cathedral with its breathtaking fan-vaulted cloisters and great east window. From the cathedral it is only a short walk down narrow cobbled streets, past historical buildings, to the main shopping area in the city. From there it is, once again, a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its now converted warehouses. In the docks you are likely to see all manner of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area and take in the splendour of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. The Cotswolds is an area of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Forest of Dean is an area of mixed ancient woodland and forms a roughly triangular plateau bounded by the River Wye to the west and north, the River Severn to the south, and the City of Gloucester to the east.
