Bath is a World Heritage City located southwest of England. It lies within Somerset County and near major cities Bristol and London. The weather of Bath is unpredictable just like most English cities. Summers can be extremely sunny and warm, but it could start getting gloomy and wet in the afternoon. Most tourists prefer making hotel reservations between March and May when the temperature is mild and the flowers bloom.
According to legendary tales, Prince Bladud, who suffered from leprosy, was miraculously cured by the waters of the hot springs found in Avon Valley during the 9th century BC. After being crowned as the King, he went back to the place that healed him which led to the discovery of Bath.
