Bath is a city in south-west England, most famous for its baths fed by three hot springs. The city was first recorded as a Romanspa, though verbal tradition suggests it was known before then. The waters from its spring were considered to be a cure for many afflictions. From Elizabethan to Georgian times it was a resort city for the wealthy. As a result of its popularity during the latter period, the city contains many fine examples of Georgian architecture, particularly the Royal Crescent. The city has a population of over 90,000 and is a World Heritage Site.
