Roman Baths in Bath

The Roman baths in Bath are located at the entrance of the Bath Abbey court yard, and are about an hour and half drive west on the M4 from London.  These bath are so well persevered that they still work to this day.  Well worth the trip from London, the roman baths have a great museum with dioramas of the sight during Roman times.

Time For A Bath In Bath Abbey

without comments

Bath Abbey

Bath England was not originally on our UK itinerary until someone recommended it to me.  My wife, a massive Jane Austen fan, immediately made the executive decision that we were going as soon as I said I had some interest.  Austen had penned many of her novels in Bath.  Bath has many buildings that have Georgian Architectural influence including John Wood the Elder’s The Circus.  Also in Bath is a well presearved Roman bath with a great muesum, and the Bath Abbey founded in the 7th century.  Three Churches have been on this site, with current one completed in 1611.

Full disclosure Note:

In order to maintain my standing among men, I declare the following.  I have no intereest in Jane Austen. I was forced to attend these sites in order to preserve a happy marriage.  I enjoyed the many Jane Austen sites we visited because of the architecture and history.  I attest that I love red meat, watch sports, and occasionally forget personal hygine, thus maintaining my Man Card status in good standing.
