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.
Located in the county of Hampshire, the city of Portsmouth, sometimes referred to as "Pompey", lies on the south coast of England and is home to the Royal Navy. The city's Historic Dockyard contains one of the most important collections of historic warships in the world. The collection includes HMS Victory, Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, and the Mary Rose. For visitors wanting to see modern navy ships, boat tours can be taken around the harbour where docked Royal Navy ships can be observed. Portsmouth also has a rich literary and engineering history and is the birthplace of Charles Dickens and the pioneering engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
Portchester Castle,, which is roughly 5 miles from Portsmouth, is one of the best preserved Roman fortifications in Northern Europe. Views from the castle's keep, which was built in Norman times, cover much of the surrounding area. The outer wall is of the late Roman era and the original church is still in use and is popular in summer for weddings. The castle is well sign posted, and served by regular buses and Portchester railway station is only a 10 minute walk.
