Bath has the only hot spring in Great Britain, and it’s been a hot vacationing spot since Georgian times.
Before that, it was a hot spot for the Romans. The ruins of the Roman bath were unearthed relatively recently, having been covered up by streets and the more modern Georgian era bath.
Now there’s a museum to which tourists flock. There’s also a live bath/spa for anyone who wishes to take the waters.
Other tourist attractions include an interesting abbey, and a lot of Georgian buildings. Tour buses roll into town mid-morning and disgorge themselves of the hordes, and late in the day swallow them up, so the town seems a relative ghost town in the evening.
At one time Bath was a small, walled medieval town. There is one stretch of the wall, about 20 feet long, intact, and a single well-hidden minor gate.
The town was bombed by the Germans in 1942 in retaliation for an allied bombing of a couple of historical German resorts.
The Avon River borders the town.
There’s a really great free walking your conducted by the “Mayor of Bath” that runs three times a day.
