How a George...

“Queen Anne died childless, so England turned to the suitably protestant Duke George of Hanover, and invited him to become King in 1714. Intriguingly, George II’s Queen Caroline loved to bathe frequently and was known as ‘Clean Caroline’. The beautiful people were irresistibly drawn to the elegant Bathonian social scene, set in a backdrop of fine Palladian architecture. Byron, Austen, Turner and the rest of high society and social climbers flocked to Bath to see and be seen. Visit our George-dropping museums in Bath, to enjoy the exquisite taste of the Georgians. And there’s no need to admire Bath only from the outside – come into a museum or several, take a turn through elegant rooms, pause to admire graceful views through perfectly proportioned windows and take in the highly individual collections."
