{england} bath’s baths

April 15, 2018

Bath is such a strange name for a place. Once you realize that it’s named for the Roman Baths that used to be extremely popular in this area though, it all makes sense. In fact, this is where people during Roman times traveled to in order to get a chance to soak in the natural hot springs bath. According to its own website, “The Roman Baths, at the heart of the City of Bath World Heritage Site, consists of the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. The city’s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water.”

While expensive, the self audio-guided tour gives you a chance to learn all about the history and people when the Roman Baths were functioning. You also get to know about the history of the area and the people who used to live in the area thousands of years ago. Last of all, you get a chance to see the steamy hot baths were rich and poor alike would relax. If only we were still allowed to soak our feet in to get a sense of what it must have been like!
