The Legacy of the Romans in Bath, England


We all know the rich and lavish architectural taste of the great Romans. When Romans invaded the Britain way back in A.D 43, they started building the robust monuments which they were famous for. Many churches, Museums, Villas, statues and many more structures were constructed.
The early Romans had a very smart idea of building the resort spas for their luxury and relaxation. With this idea in mind, Romans started searching the best place in Europe that can be suitable for baths. They finally found a place which is surrounded by hills and a river (Avon) was flowing through the valley of the hills. But the question here is, How can they manage to worm up the water for Spas (baths)?

It is a natural wonder that the water gets heated up due to the Geo thermal nature of water when the water falls from high altitudes. The same natural phenomenon happened in the described place which is most suitable for the worm water resort spas. Early Romans named it as the Aquae Sulis (“The water of Sulis”) which is the modern day city in the United Kingdom named as the Bath England Hotels or the Bath city.

The Bath city has the world’s most renowned and best in class historic monuments like Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, Thermae bath spa, the Royal Crescent, the Circus and Pulteney Bridge. The Bath City took perfect shapes over the centuries under the greatest dynasties of Romans, Georgian, Norman and the British kingdom. It has now become one of the largest cities in the United Kingdom and around 3.8 million day visitors every year.

In the early 20th Century, the baths have been renovated with the latest technology as the baths have been shattered by the floods, winds, world war and so on. Tourism is the principle industry for the Bath city and there are so many service related industries coming up which lead to greater job opportunities. The Bath England Hotels became one of the best fashionable living places in the modern world and there is an exclusive museum for fashion artifacts called “Fashion Museum”.

In the end, The Bath England Hotels or the Bath city was inscribed in the “World Heritage site” by UNESCO because of it’s amazing historic marvels carved all over the city.
