From the Roman Baths to Cardiff’s castles and much besides, this issue we visit some of the country’s most fascinating historic sites
We travel back in time in the Nov/Dec issue with a visit to the Roman Baths in the city of Bath and a tour of the idyllic villages along the River Avon, Shakespeare’s old stamping ground. We’ve also gone castle-spotting in Cardiff and shopped for bowler hats and fine wines at the historic shops of London’s St James’s, a bustling enclave dating back to the 1660s. Here are some of the highlights.
Bath’s magnificent ancient Roman bathing complex set the scene for the city’s heyday as a Georgian spa resort
We follow the course of the River Avon, which gathers along its banks the stories of three historic battles and the nation’s greatest bard.
