Immerse Yourself in Historic #Bath @visitbath #travel #UNESCO #history @visitbritain @visitengland @RomanBathsBath

Confession: we almost skipped historic Bath, worried that the famous spa town might be too touristy. Popular for so long with fashionable society, we pictured the streets of Bath crowded with well-to-do weekenders carrying bags from high-end shops, taking…
