This guide covers all of Bath's notable architecture with commissioned photographs and an introduction outlining the social and economic forces that shaped the city.

The city of Bath is not just a museum of a past phenomenon -- it is a living urban organism with dramatic scenery and ancient beauty. The Romans established their city of Aquae Sulis, and it was here too that eighteenth-century society settled in the refined luxury of the architecture we now call Georgian. Its rich history is told through the text and pictures here.
