Bath : Michelin's recommendations
England's only hot springs surfaced in Bath around 100 000 years ago. The Romans established baths here, and in the 18C it became a fashionable spa town. It is today one of England’s most appealing towns, not for its allures as a spa, but because it retains the ambience of its golden age as epitomised by Jane Austen and her heroines, in whose footsteps visitors can follow as they take in the town’s elegant buildings.
