Background

In the 50th year of the AD, the Romans discovered hot springs in Bath and built a public bathhouse for people to use. At the same time, a temple was built. At that time, Bath was already a very developed city. But in 407 AD, the Roman army left the United Kingdom, and Bath was abandoned and abandoned.

During the Anglo-Saxon period to the Middle Ages, Bath gradually recovered. In 1189, the main industry at this time was the manufacture of wool processed products. After the 18th century, Bath gradually became a hot spring tourism industry, and many famous buildings were also built at that time, such as the Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge.

In 1987, Bath was listed as a World Heritage Site. Today, Bath's tourism industry is still booming. In 2006, the new Thermae Bath Spa, combined with the new and old buildings of Bath Spa, allows visitors to directly experience the bath culture of the Roman era.
