Bath: Lose Yourself In The Magnificent Roman Baths

Bath is not only a trendy and attractive town, it also has a long history within its walls, and more specifically under its ground. The natural ground of the town has been elevated throughout the centuries, so that in the 19th century, the discovery of an almost intact baths temple has forced the town to improvise. As you walk in the town centre, you will find a decorated balcony that is now several metres above the main entrance to the old baths. But this is not all, you can find great visit tours to take you through the history of South England: The windsor, stonehenge and bath tour is a full day of sightseeing that combines prehistory, Romans and medieval architecture.
