What to do on a Friday in July? Go to the lovely city of Bath on the other side of Somerset from us. Bath is famous for… its baths! Hot springs in the area have drawn people from earliest times and the Iron Age peoples had a shrine there to some un-remembered gods or goddesses. When the Romans arrived in Britain they took over the area and built the city of Aqua Sulis… Romans bathed regularly at home and in public baths, with the hot springs providing free hot water it was ideal! The Romans left Britain and left Bath, but the town continued through the so-called Dark Ages, and through the Medieval centuries and becoming famous and popular in the Regency period… read Jane Austen if you want to know more!
So now, Bath is a beautiful city with an abbey, wonderful old shops, houses and other buildings, and lovely place to visit with daughter.
