Geocache Description:

Great Pulteney Street is one of the best sights in Bath, starting at the Pulteney Bridge (which is lined with shops itself) and ending at the Holburne Museum.

The City of Bath is a wonderful location, loaded with history, beautiful architecture and quaint little shops. If you have time to visit the city before or after visiting the cache, it is very well worthwhile.

Bath was built by the Romans around its hot spring waters around 2,000 years ago. The Victorians re-discovered the Roman Baths and they have since been restored to a magnificent condition.

The Saxons built a huge Abbey in the 800s which was the site for the Coronation of the first King of all England, Edgar, in 973. The Abbey was re-built in the 1400s and still shows the scars of the English civil war in the 1640s.

Bath became popular again in the 1700s due to its "restorative waters", resulting in a massive building programme. All buildings were constructed in a similar style, in a similar stone, resulting in its beautiful architecture. The Royal Crescent, Pump Rooms, Theatre Royal and Assembley Rooms are particularly recommended.

The Pulteney Bridge was built as an echo of the Venice Bridge of Sighs, and is the start of Great Pulteney Street with it's fantastic architecture. For details of Great Pulteney Street, the Bridge and Holburne Museum visit this web site. The cache is located at close to the end of Great Pulteney Street, easily accesible without a car although you could park very close.

Remember that this is a MICRO-CACHE. It is accessible from the street. We suggest you sit down whilst you search.

An Ordnance Survey map for the location is available at this web site.

The hint reduces the difficulty of this cache to one.
