Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    From here you can access all the streets and shops. Take a breather at the Bath Coffee co shop and relax a bit. Visit the Boston Tea Party shop and Guinness and Flan OBriens across the street.

    Victorian bandstand set in the middle of Royal Victoria Park. Large open grassy area with views of The Royal Crescent behind. I would imagine an incredibly enjoyable spot to listen to an outdoor concert.

    I believe that this perhaps is the most inadvertently photographed structure of the city of Bath. This is because all the tour buses stop right next to it. Tourists getting off are bound to take their first selfie in this historic city right here. Stefano Vallerio Pieroni was a Tuscan who came to England in the 1800s. He used to make plaster statues. He designed this drinking fountain, out of Bath-stone, so that Bath visitors could partake the medicinal mineral water from the hot springs. This fountain was erected at another point in 1899. It was moved here much later. You can find it on York Street next to the Terrace Walk.

    This square is located between the Bath Spa Train Station and the Bath Bus Station. It can be found in front of the railway arches on Dorchester Street near the South Gate. It was named after the famous nineteenth century engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. He was one of the major contributors to Britain’s Industrial Revolution. He built the Great Western Railways, many unconventional bridges and a series of railway tunnels. You can find gourmet burgers, sourdough pizzas and many other interesting foods here. I feel that such areas create facilities for the tourists.

    I believe that this bronze statue is the pride of the Parade Gardens. You can find it as you descend from the grand stairs into the garden. It is also known as King Edward VII Memorial. The angel is shown holding an olive branch in one hand and a globe in the other. The wings of the angel are spread wide. It is positioned on a tall column which has a likeness of King Edward, the peacemaker, etched on it. It was built in 1919 by the people of Bath. The statue appears to be spreading love and harmony.

    Charlotte Brunswick was a famous chocolatier of Bath. You can find her unique statue on Church Street, outside the shop named after her. This is a unique statue as it appears to be entirely crafted out of chocolate. It has chocolate brown face, hair, clothes and shoes. Charlotte was the finest chocolatier of the 18th century. Flavours always fascinated her so she experimented with ingredients from all over the world brought to her by her father. Her aim was to bring life to the the dead Georgian chocolates. She evolved such magnificent confectioneries that her recipes are still treasured.

    Thursday afternoon 27th May and we took the Pulteney Cruisers Tour along the River Avon.

    Along the way this was one of the bridges we sailed under.  This Grade II listed structure opened in 1826. It spans the River, linking Bathwick Street and Cleveland Place.

    The single arched metal structure is currently shrouded in scaffolding as it undergoes a multi million pound structual repair, which commenced on the 4th May and expected to take 7 months.

    At each end of the Bridge there  there is a small  unusual building, known as a lodge, built in a style that could be considered Greek.
