A cold pint is often the perfect way to end a hot day of sightseeing. Like most English cities, there are plenty of bars in Bath. But if you like history served with your ale, try Saracens Head Tavern. Founded in 1713, it claims to be Bath’s oldest pub. Its most famous customer was a young writer who sipped while working on his first serialized novel in 1836. His pseudonym was Boz. You probably know him better as Charles Dickens and his book The Pickwick Papers.
