What a nice surprise, I never thought Bath would be so charming!

I like the lack of trees on the streets BTW.

Bath is pretty famous for its beauty JPBrazil, glad you have been introduced to it. I think the uniformity of architecture and materials allows for a lack of greenery.

Although there is not much greenary inside the city there is plenty all around it. Bath is quite small, you can walk out of the city centre and be in lush green fields in 10-20 mins. Near to Bath there are also many famous and beautiful villages (Bradford apon Avon, Lacock, Castle Combe etc). There are also many fantastic manor house with large landscaped gardens (Durham Park, Prior Park). So for anyone in Bath who needs a bit of countryside you are always very close to some of the most beautiful in the UK. A really great place to live and also a great place to visit, thanks again for the great photos!

Are there any other large towns/cities that are similar to Bath in architecture and beauty?

I have been to Bath and it is amazing.

Windsor, Canterbury, York and Winchester are all places that have olde traditional architecture, Cathedrals, Castles etc...

But are there any other city's towns in England pretty similar to Bath ...?

Amazing photos, I really need to visit sometime!!

In response to above, Oxford, Cambridge and Chester are all really stunning English cities. There are almost certainly more, but I can't think of any others off the top of my head!

Edit: Durham is really nice aswell! Check out pages 2&3 of my thread below!

There are plenty of other cities and large towns in the UK with unifrom architecture, like mentioned the two most famous are Cambridge and Oxford, i'm surprised you didnt mention Edinburgh Mossy22 Additonally there is Royal Leamington Spa, Chester, Cheltenham, Brighton&Hove, Harrogate, many parts of London, Llandudno, Norwich and many other smaller places built in a similar architectural style and materials. Also most cathedral cities have a large mix of medieval architectural styles like York, Lincoln, Salisbury, Durham and many others.
