Finally I am here, in the city so desirable to visit by many - magnificent and glorious Bath! I’d like to dedicate this post to a lovely security guy of a short stay car park in Bath for letting us get away with a £25 parking fine! Whoever you are – God bless you!
What a great city to spend a casual Tuesday in! I’ve been dreaming to visit this place for a long time and when I was there in reality, it seemed like a dream!
The city was first established as a spa with the Latin name, Aquae Sulis (“the waters of Sulis”) by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s about 20 years after they had arrived in Britain (AD43), although verbal tradition suggests that Bath was known before then. They built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs. Edgar was crowned king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Much later, it became popular as a spa town during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone (Wikipedia).
Bath has so much to offer to everyone, in 1987 it was included into the Worlds Heritage Site. Being a lover of the old architecture I enjoyed the stroll through the lovely streets of Bath inhaling every single moment of the experience. Nothing let me down and the place has absolutely exceeded my expectations.
