Any old city or town in the UK has its historic sites that require at least one visit to get an understanding of the history of the country. Visiting Roman Baths in Bath Spa, UK is a must-do. It’s one of the most visited tourist attractions in the UK, transporting visitors back to the period of Roman occupation over 2,000 years ago. The Roman Baths are fed by hot mineral springs located throughout this area.
I’ve visited two times in the past eight years and constantly find something new on display. Excavations continue several metres under street level, carefully uncovering and preserving the superior Roman technology that continues to work to this day!
