I simply adored Bath. The size of the town was just big enough without being overwhelming. It was very picturesque and immaculate.

|A very cool shop called “Found”. |
|At William Herschel’s home. His telescope lens-grinder. He discovered Uranus, the infrared light spectrum and numerous comets. His sister Caroline discovered many celestial bodies as well.|
|The Bath Postal Museum is fantastic! So much fun here.|
|Old Pultney Bridge. Shops line either side of the bridge (the only other one in the world is the Ponte Vecchio in Florence).|
|Parade grounds, at the Avon River’s edge.|
Bath is known for the 2000-year old healing baths built by the Romans. A great deal of the structure remains and the baths themselves were used up into the early 20th century. A natural hot spring feeds the baths and the water was thought to have restorative properties.
