This time our travels took us to Bath for a weekend get-away! Bath is small town in England known for its unique Georgian architecture and natural hot springs. When we got there, we wandered throughout the city taking in the variety of shops and cuisine. Other fun activities in Bath included; afternoon tea at the Pump Room, The Fashion Museum, The Jane Austen Centre, and a tour of the Roman Baths.
The Roman Baths is a top historical site in England and one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. These baths are famously known for public bathing. From the tour, we learned that a huge part of the Roman culture was cleanliness. It helped the Roman’s stay healthy and played a huge role in their social life. What’s really neat about these baths is that the water was naturally hot from thermal springs. It’s still heating up the water today. Unfortunately we were not able to swim in the original baths, however, we took a step back in time and pretended we were Romans at the Thermae Bath Spa. We had 2 and a half hours of much needed relaxation in natural thermal baths!
The following day, we went to Stonehenge; one of the seven wonders of the world! Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument built in the late Neolithic period (~2500 B.C.) It’s crazy to think that people made this without advanced technology.
Stayed tuned to find out about our last week in Nottingham and our London adventures before we head back to the United States!
