The Roman Baths are one of the most iconic places in Bath and are visited by thousands every year. Its popularity was honoured this month when they were awarded the gold award for best Large Tourism Attraction during a recent tourism awards ceremony.

The South West Tourism Awards were held on 8th February at Cornwall's Eden Project. They honoured the best of the tourist industry across one of the finest areas of the UK in which to find English country cottages. A great deal of anticipation surrounded the Large Visitor Attraction category, with Exeter's Royal Albert Museum, Cornwall's National Maritime Museum and the National Trust's Cotehele providing competition for the Roman Baths in Bath.

Described as a “regional icon”, Bath's Roman Baths are known worldwide and were an obvious choice as the winner of the award. Its old-world beauty and haven of relaxation in the city centre are sure to keep visitors coming back year after year whilst enjoying a cottage holiday in Somerset.
