Bath's Roman heritage features on a collection of stamps highlighting some of Britain's most significant sights.

The collection - A-Z of the UK Part 2 - was issued on Tuesday.

The Roman Baths - a World Heritage Site - was chosen along with the white cliffs of Dover and London's Victoria and Albert Museum.

Its manager Stephen Clews said the image captured the baths "as few people ever see it, with dawn light breaking".

He added: "In the early morning the baths can be a calm and quiet space with mist rising slowly from the waters, allowing the viewer to immerse in tranquil solitude."
