Bath is a city in South West England known by many as the city and spa resort that Jane Austen wrote about in her novels.
However, the city is also a World Heritage Site as its baths date back in (known) history to AD 50 when the Romans built baths and a temple on the site.
The bath in the photo above is part of a geothermal spring and its hot water (46 degrees Celsius and 115 degrees Fahrenheit) rises here daily as it has since the Romans built their temple on this site over 1000 years ago.
The Bath springs are the only hot springs of its kind in the United Kingdom.
In Jane Austen’s time period during the18th century, Bath was a popular resort destination where people would come to “take the waters”.
It’s such a stunning travel destination in this day and age with amazing architecture, history, and geography.
