During the Roman occupation of Britain, in 60-70AD,
the natural hot springs under the city of Bath were harnessed.
The Roman Baths included the calderium (hot),
tepidarium (warm) and frigidarium (cold) baths.
Romans used them not only for bathing, but eating
 and entertaining.  The water that flows through the Roman
baths is unsafe, as it passes through the still functioning
toxic lead pipes.
The newly constructed Thermae Bath and Spa allows
modern-day bathers to experience the waters with
more user friendly plumbing, and on a rooftop!
The best plant we saw in England!
Royal Victoria park in Bath was opened in 1830 by
11 year old Princess Victoria, future Queen of England.

Although King Henry VIII ordered it
destroyed when he created the Church
of England, it was later lovingly restored
by his daughter, Queen Elizabeth I.
The coronation of King Edgar, known as
Edgar the Peaceful, the very
 first king of England, was held on this
spot in 943AD. 
Each region of England has it’s own unique chimney tops,
or “pots”.  They dot the rooftops, each one telling the
outside observer how many fireplaces there are in the
home.  Chimney sweeping is a lucrative profession here!

The Royal Crescent is a row of 30 terraced houses,
laid out in a sweeping semi circle.  Built in 1767,
it is THE address to have in Bath.

the gentry is served their tea and crumpets.
