The historic city of Bath is a world heritage site and famously
dates back to Roman times. Its spa heritage became extremely
fashionable in the 18th century with Beau Nash presiding over
Bath’s rich culture, and Jane Austen lived in the city in the
early 19th century. Emma Jolly’s latest

Bath and North East Somerset.
