Bath

Bath is a designated World Heritage City with its famous Roman Baths, Abbey, Royal Crescent and wonderful Georgian architecture. Now you can take the waters yourself in the Thermae Bath Spa. Many of the buildings were built in the 18th century when Bath became the society venue: the place to see and be seen attending Balls.
