Bath is a city heaped in History. If you come to live here, then remember that there have been people dwelling on this site since prehistoric times. The reason they have come here is for the spring and spa that for centuries provided a source of cooling and some claim healing water due to its very high mineral content. This was used for bathing and drinking, and the fame of the spring brought the Roman’s to set up a city around them and the baths that still stand today.  It is worth a visit as soon as you can and there is a whole new spa built on the roof that gives you views of this spectacular city. The Georgians and Victorians were big on the whole healthy living thing and saw the spring as a place to rejuvenate as well as the Romans. The rich came and the city changed dramatically. You can see that fro, the incredible architecture that lines the city’s streets. There are examples of its glorious past everywhere plus there are little narrow medieval streets to get lost in. The town centre is a Mecca for shopping with established brands next to bespoke and boutique shops plus there are prestigious arcades and markets that have benefited from the Art deco period.
