Bath is a fascinating world-class city with the elegant Georgian city of Jane Austen combined with Roman architecture.

Constructed for fun and relaxation, since Roman times, the beautiful bath has been a wellness destination. Waters remain a major draw, both at the old Roman Baths and at the modern Thermae Bath Spa, home to Britain's only natural hot springs.

The story begins then. 46 Celsius degree surplus hot spa water from the spring, which pours into a Roman drain and then flows into the river. In the first century, the Romans built natural baths around the spring and the built a temple dedicated to the goddess Sulis Minerva.

Stop At: Stonehenge, Amesbury SP4 7DE England

Our next stop is Stonehenge which stands alone in the vast, empty section of the Salisbury Valley as the world's most famous prehistoric and now a World Heritage Site. Its origins date back almost 5,000 years and since then it has been home to pagan religions and spiritual worship. What was the purpose of this huge collection of stones? Was it a Moon Sighting Observatory, a Sun Temple, or a complex cemetery? Who were those people that took these 4 ton rocks and carved them? Stonehenge still functions as a celestial calendar. Even in modern times the Sun rises on the longest day of the year in just the right spot and it retains its powerful sense of wonder over those who gather. We will learn all the answers and marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient design and engineering here in today.
