Bath is (not surpsingly) the most famous British bathing city from Roman time and lies east-south-east of Bristol. Gloucester is at the start of the Severn estuary, which serves as a border between England and Wales. Wells is a royal cathedral for music and lies to the south west of Bath. Worcester is north of Gloucester and south of Warwick in the west country.

Bath is at the extreme south west end of the Cotswolds, or maybe just beyond them. It gets its name unsurprisingly from the Roman baths established not surprisingly by the Romans. It is also the town where the Royal crescent and circle are located. There are several photos taken at the Royal crescent and I included one of several I took of the circle.
Wells cathedral contains the royal choral school. The cathedral itself (the towers) appears truncated to those familiar with French cathedrals like Notre Dam, but the interior is eye-catching. There are several churches or chapels within the overall cathedral. One contains a highly ornate and colourful choir - see photos of the choir seating. The cathedral dominates the town, then the bishop's residence which looks more like a fort with its moat and rampart walls. One can make interesting hypotheses about the popularity of bishops who build such structures.
