As we ride along on our open-top bus tour we learn all about Bath. Todays Bath sits on a layer cake of history, starting with the founding Celts, then Romans who were the first to build a town here because they were attracted by the natural hot springs. Romans were followed by Saxons, Normans, 18th century Georgian high society and finally, modern tourists who flock to this extremely popular holiday town. All of Bath has been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations, making it one of the few cities in the world that has been protected in its entirety. There are 4,500 listed historic buildings in the city, so there is architectural beauty and significance nearly everywhere you look.
