Archaeological evidence suggests there was human activity around the hot springs on which the City of Bath is built at least 8,000 years B.C; but it was the Romans that started the development of 'Aquae Sulis' as a sanctuary of rest and relaxation in AD43.
In AD 70, the Romans built a reservoir around the hot springs, and then a sophisticated series of baths, and a temple dedicated to the goddess Sulis Minerva. Visitors from across Britain and Europe were attracted to Bath, however, after the withdrawal of Roman protection in AD410, the town fell into decline, although the baths continued to be used.
Bath is rich in heritage and is well-known for its Roman and Georgian history. Some of the most impressive architectural sights in Europe can be found in Bath, and the city has around 5,000 listed buildings.
Some of the finest examples of Bath’s history and architecture can be explored at the Roman Baths, Royal Crescent, Circus, Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey. Recognised as the last of the great medieval churches in England, construction on the abbey began in 1499 but was not completed until 1611.
