Bath and Wells photo diary

In the weekend, I visited the city of Bath – England is such a beautiful country full of nature (and rain!), and it’s even nicer when it’s sunny. Bath has such a big history from the time of the Roman invasion and the Roman Baths as well as the Thermae Spa, which has mineral water, which is naturally warm. They are both a must-visit.

Public Baths were a feature of everyday life for Romans, where they would go to not only bathe themselves but socialise as well. In this case, the baths were built by Celts and were dedicated to goddess Sulis, who for the Romans resembled their goddess Minerva. The name Sulis remained after the Roman invasion, and the city became known as Aquae Sulis (“the waters of Sulis”). The baths featured three different rooms, the caldarium (hot bath), tepidarium (warm bath) and frigidarium (cold bath).

We stayed at Crapnell Farm, a lovely house-turned bed&breakfast. The owners Pam and Sandy were super lovely and friendly and suggested we visit the city of Wells, which was nearby.

Wells is the smallest town in the UK with the oldest street in Europe. It is a beautiful city and well worth the visit. This medieval city is a Unesco World Heritage City. It has a few different things to explore, such as the gardens of the Bishop’s Palace, St Cuthbert’s Church and also has a market twice during the week.
