I would definitely love to go to the thermal baths in Bath! My mother was in the UK this summer and spent a few days in Bath, and she really enjoyed it. I also have a romanticized view of it from reading some Jane Austin novels. Looks beautiful -- can't wait to visit someday! So much history there.

Bath Spa is a remarkable day spa, combining the ‘old and new’. The historic spa buildings, the Hot and Cross Baths blend with the contemporary design of the New Royal Bath.
