The City of Bath is a World Heritage Site with many unique architectural buildings. It was first established as a spa resort with the Latin name, Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") by the Romans in AD 43.
Much later, it again became popular as a spa during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone. The architects laid out the new quarters in streets and squares, the identical façades of which gave an impression of palatial scale and classical decorum.

Today, it is a very pretty stone-built town which includes many stunning ancient buildings and landmarks
