Photo Essays: Bath, England


On our second day in London, we took a day trip to the countryside to visit Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath. It was a really fun experience even though there were some issues with the tour. Overall I would suggest not trying to cram those three into one day, because there was a lot of time spent driving and, everyone agreed, not enough time at each destination (or even time to grab a bite!). Even so, I am glad we got to see Bath! It’s a city in Southwest England that was founded by the Romans in the 1st Century AD, who used the area’s natural springs as a spa. The still-intact Roman baths helps explain why Bath is a designated World Heritage Site – these Roman remains are some of the most important in the world. The Georgian architecture of the city is really beautiful, with most of the buildings made of this gorgeous cream colored Bath Stone that you can see below.
