Bath Maps and Orientation
(Bath, North-East Somerset, England, UK)
The World Heritage city of Bath is a breathtaking place to visit and is located on the south-western side of England, within the county of Somerset. Bath is just over 160 km / 100 miles to the west of London
and is a mere 21 km / 13 miles to the south-east of Bristol. The city of Bath is famous for its seven hills and it is fair to say that if you are planning to walk outside of the city centre, you can expect to encounter some steep roads and pavements.
Central Bath comprises a number of prominent streets, which include Walcot Street, Milsom Street and Great Pulteney Street. Milsom Street is the place to head for the best shops and restaurants, and leads to Union Street (home of the Roman Baths), Stall Street and the recently regenerated SouthGate Shopping Centre, next to the Bath Spa railway station.
