About Bath, England
Legend has it that the British king, who was sick with leprosy, discovered the only hot springs in Britain while disguising himself as a shepherd. Just like the pigs, he wallowed in the mud, in the Somerset County area of south-west England, and discovered that it cured the disease he was suffering from. As a result of his recovery, he set up the Bath City area, so that more patients could recover from the disease. A few centuries later, the Romans discovered the hot springs. Around the springs they built magnificent Roman baths and a temple. The whole city was built around the baths and the temple. Years later, in 1702, Queen Anne visited the site, discovering the therapeutic qualities of the baths. Following Queen Anne came to Bath all the wealthy inhabitants of England, and Bath, became a fashionable and glamorous resort town, and even enjoyed further construction and development. If you're going to visit Bath with your car (or a rental), make sure to book hotels in Bath city centre with free onsite parking to avoid high parking fees.
