As I wallowed in the gloriously warm spa water on a cold winter’s morning, I thought of the Celtic Prince Bladud enjoying a similar experience around 863BC – some simple pleasures don’t change.

The waters in Bath have been a constant thread through history from their discovery by the Celts to the present day.

We really enjoyed the city’s 21st century fabulous experience, the Thermae Bath Spa, the only naturally warm mineral rich thermal spa in Britain.

Situated in the heart of the city, it is a remarkable combination of ‘old and new’, where historic spa buildings blend with the contemporary design of the New Royal Bath. Bath is steeped in 2,000 year history, all due to the hot springs from which the City derives its name. In the early 18th century, the Georgian era, fashionable English society began coming to Bath to "take the waters" as a health cure.

it was wonderful to bathe in the pools, relax in scented steam rooms and experience the thrill of looking out over the city from the roof-top pool. It was both invigorating and enjoyable.

We stayed overnight at the conveniently located Brooks Guest House and took time to explore the city. The hotel was delightful, however, the rooms were small but adequate and there quite a few stairs to negotiate.

I had tea in Georgian style at the splendid Pump Rooms. Next door I walked where the Romans walked on the 2000 year old pavements beside the steaming pool of the Roman Baths. These are the finest examples of remains of roman spa. There is an excellent new audio and visual interpretation keeping all ages enthralled.

Sally Lunn’s historic eating house was well worth a visit to ample her delicious speciality buns.

Bath has welcomed us and other visitors over the centuries and truly earning it reputation of a World Heritage Site.
