With its natural thermal waters and indulgent facilities, spa breaks in Bath have been enjoyed by us Brits since the Romans made it a spa resort back in AD43. Ever a bunch to identify an opportunity and take it as far as they could, the Romans created baths and a dramatic temple in the area that we now know and love as the city of Bath – and they gave it the name Aqua Sulis.
The hot springs that they discovered in Bath are the only ones of their kind in the UK, so it’s easy to see why the city remains one of a kind, attracting the stressed and those in need of some time out all year round.
While visitors can enjoy a tour of the original baths and see how it all began, these days there are slightly more contemporary ways to enjoy the waters and forget their troubles. The Thermae Bath Spa has been carefully designed with two things in mind, relaxation and enjoying the city’s unique waters during a visit. Those who really want to get a taste of the spring water should visit the Pump Room restaurant too, as they offer free glasses of the water to visitors…just don’t expect to be too impressed with the taste!
