Way back in 2008, Lori and were on a road-trip through parts of Southwestern England. We spent a day and a night in this beautiful city on the Avon. Bath, UK is best known for its Roman Baths, from which the city took its name.
This is a shot from poolside. The water is a mineral hot spring. Not bad shape for 2000 years old.
This a view from a bit higher up.
Like most cities in Europe, it has a fine cathedral.
Not to mention some distinctly English architecture. We had an enjoyable day and evening here, with family and friends. Look forward to passing through again someday.

There’s something about ancient European architecture that always gets me.
Those Baths are stunning!
It don’t get much more ancient than that place. Very impressive.
I seriously need to travel Europe and enjoy.the architecture… Great shots!
Absolutely John. You could wander around for years and not even leave England. Quite amazing.
With the UK being 1/59th the size of Australia, I reckon it’d only take a year or two for me. (All day, every day)
I’ve got a few Z survival buddies that way that I plan to catch up with.
Just do it is what I always say. We started much to late in life.
That’s the plan
Still looks fabulous after 2,000 years, just amazing, great photos.
Stunning and it never gets old.
So true. The best part of ending one of our trips is the anticipation of the next one. Planning is underway as we speak.
Us too … put we’re still at the selection stage.
I’ve been to England several times and have never heard of this. We’ll have to take a look next time.
Pretty place. Definitely worth it. We did Stonehenge and Avebury in the way up from Portsmouth. Full day.
My son and DIL (she’s a Londoner) were there recently and thought it was amazing but said I might have a prob going in water that a zillion others have been in cos I’m a bit of a clean freak.
Not to worry, they don’t allow people into the baths, at least not when we were there.
Ha ha, they were just messing with my head, I should have known!
Lol. Start thinking of revenge haha
Wonderful pictures. This is one place I didn’t get to visit on my trip to the UK. I shall live vicariously, or rather bathe vicariously, through you. Oh, can you get my back?
Done. Pretty nice place, just a bit off the beaten track.
