Welcome to Bath

Roman Bath Museum

Roman Bath Museum Bath is a small city in the south west of England in the county of Somerset about 100 miles west of London (160km). It was originally founded by the Romans in the valley of the River Avon who were attracted by the naturally occurring hot springs. The Romans were the first to have the idea of building hot baths around the hot springs, but later during the Georgian era it became a very popular spa resort once again and underwent rapid expansion. Some of Bath's finest architecture was built during this period from from the local, yellow coloured Bath Stone. Even to this day there are strict local building regulaitions that ensure that new building are built with this stone, in keeping with the historic buildings.
