Bath, England

If you are visiting London, you must take a day trip to Bath. Bath is in Somerset and is known for its Roman Baths.
The Romans were able to build a spa around 60 AD because of hot springs, which are the only ones in the United Kingdom!

 

Bath has been a World Heritage Site since 1987.

 

This is the main bath and when it first was opened it attracted people from all over Europe as it was said to help people with many ailments. The water is said to have magic healing powers, even today!

 

When it was an active and working spa the water was clear because a ceiling was covering it from the sunlight. It now has a green tint due to algae.
When the Bath’s first opened, only men were allowed. Then they had separate baths, one for men and one for women. The one in the photo above was the private spa for royalty.
