What's Special

Bath is symbolic of man's street smart nature, his ability to make best use of the available resources (environment, people and society rules). The city Bath was built as a place to provide ailment from disease and to replenish. Further on, Myths related to Natural SPA water that it can cure certain untreatable diseases and about its soil is also believed to contain the constituents which are supposed to cure hazardous diseases.All these factors help in increasing the visitor's crowd to bath. Local people like Nash cashed on this, and started constructing houses, hospitals and rooms to serve the huge population turning up to bath, to get cured. This gave rise to a boom in construction and architectural designing, monuments like Royal Crescent, Circus, Bath Abbey, The Assembly Rooms were constructed during this era and now  are now part of world Heritage. The local government was not too far off in getting their share of cash, so they introduced taxes like Window Tax, In which one has to pay tax based on the number of windows one's house has.

The best thing about the current Bath city, is that, it is one of the few places least affected by the cultures of foreign nationalities; the old English culture is still intact at this place. The food, drinks, environment and the people make this place authentically Brit.
