Bath is a historic city that is located in the county of Somerset in the southwest part of England. It is roughly about 97 miles west of London and it is home to around 84,000 people. It was first granted status as a city by Queen Elizabeth I in 1590.

The city first gained notice as a spa resort established by the Romans around 43 AD, though there is evidence settlements had been in the area long before then. Baths and a temple were constructed on the hills surrounding the city and in the valley of the river Avon around hot springs, which are the only ones in the country that are naturally occurring.

Bath was crowned a World Heritage Site in 1987and the city today has a wealth of museums, theaters, and many other cultural and sporting venues which make it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United Kingdom. Over one million tourists make the trip to Bath annually.

The city is also home to two universities and a number of schools and colleges. A large service sector caters to the tourist industry and a growing information and communications industry provides employment for the residents of the city.

Tourists and residents of Bath enjoy a temperate climate that is in general wetter and milder than the rest of England as a whole. The summer months see temperatures that are around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and the winter months see temperatures in the area of 33 to 35 Fahrenheit. Rainfall is most prevalent in the fall and winter months and are most often caused by Atlantic depressions. The area also sees a bit less sunshine in these months than the rest of England but overall, the weather in Bath and Somerset County is delightful for most of the year.

Bath is a city situated in South West England and is quiet well known for its baths fed by three hot springs. It is positioned 159 kilometres west of central London and approximately 21 kilometres southeast of Bristol.

The city was discovered during the period of the only naturally-occurring hot springs in United Kingdom. It was initially recognised as a Roman Spa, though folklores suggest it was discovered much earlier. It was said that the water which originated from the spring would cure many afflictions. During the Elizabeth and the Georgian age it considered to be a resort city for the Wealthy people. It is because of its reputation that many examples of Georgian architecture are found here.

The city has a total population of 80,000 and has been declared a World Heritage Site.
