Short version: "A scoop of pure honey set in a green bowl"
Long version: Bath is the world's most perfect Georgian city. A graceful and airy miracle of Palladian grandeur, it's a world of arcades and crescents, of Assembly Rooms and Pump Rooms. In the 18th-century it was the focus of the Age of Elegance. Today it's our turn to savour the accreted delights of the slow centuries as we explore this exquisite place and its stunningly cosmopolitan Roman foundations, folded into a time-warp in the lovely Somerset hills. A trip to Bath is an event. European cities don't come any more provocative. Or profound. Or poetic. N.B. we'll be back in central London at approximately 6.15 pm.
