Bath has been a magnet for tourists and locals alike for over 2,000 years. The only place in the Britain where you can bathe in naturally warm water, the Bath’s thermal springs have been in use since Roman times. Located on the banks of the River Avon and a UNESCO world heritage site, the city is a collection of ceremonious streets and magnificently preserved architecture, such as the Royal Crescent, that nostalgically recalls the splendour of Georgian times. While in town make sure to visit the Thermae Bath Spa for a warming al fresco rooftop swim with spectacular views over the city, browse Bath’s many shops, visit the cathedral or the Jane Austin museum and, of course, pose for a photo by the picturesque Pulteney Bridge.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
