Roman Baths (In Bath)

Location In The UK
The Roman Baths are historical site in the English city of Bath. The location is visible in the map here:

The baths are below street level and the buildings are above. The main parts of the site are: the Sacred Spring, Roman Temple, Bath House and Museum.

More than 1 million people visit the attraction each year and I was there recently for a day out.

Rain water falls on the nearby Mendip Hills, it percolates down through limestone aquifers to a depth between 2,700 metres and 4,300 metres where geothermal energy raises the water temperature to between 64°C and 96°C. With pressure the heated water rises back to the surface along faults in the limestone. 

I drank some of this warm water. It tasted pretty normal. It is completely safe to drink at the spa water bore-hole which was sunk in 1983 in the Pump Room. Mrs Rosh refused to drink the water.

Here are some pics from the day:

From the site you can also see Bath Abbey:

On route to the site I briefly stopped off to see Stonehenge:
