Bath: Pevsner City Guide - Michael Forsyth

I skipped ahead and tested out one of the later Walks because it covers a part of town I've never been to before and have been meaning to visit for about a year. Today was a sunny day and I had to be in Bath on other business anyway so it was a perfect opportunity.


The guide was very informative and pointed out lots of buildings and features I probably would never have noticed otherwise but I found that I had to keep my wits about me because it would have been easy to get lost or miss something. The map provided is minimally adequate; taking a proper map of the city centre as well might be a good idea.


The architecture, settings and views were all amazing and I took heaps of photos, some of which I like. Here's one example:
