4 Photos that will inspire you to visit the Roman Baths, Bath, UK

2000 years ago, the romans came to the cold northern lands of England.

They discovered the natural hot-springs at Bath and thought, “Shit, this’ll keep us warm on those winter nights, lets build a bath-house”. And build they did.

The ancient site, fortunately, was lost beneath the modern city – meaning it was preserved until re-discovery in the 19th century. In fact, the baths at Bath are the best preserved example of Roman baths in the world.

We paid £13.50 per person for regular access to the Roman Baths. You don’t get to bathe their unfortunately. If you want to bathe in the healing springs, you have to pay a fortune to visit the luxury spa 🙁
