Though I will say this, I was tempted to see if we could have got a small dingy and go for a little row! MOL

Anyhoo, let's see what Smooch has to say...

Here's a little bit of info from BBHQ's Historical Travel Guide, Smooch:


Hello epic travellers and history lovers!

During our trip to Bath, UK, we enjoyed visiting the historic Roman Baths. Built in 70 AD during the Roman occupation of Britain, these impressive baths were a popular destination for Romans seeking relaxation and healing.

One of the most fascinating aspects of the Roman Baths is that they were constructed on top of a natural hot spring. The water in the baths is heated by underground geothermal activity and remains at a constant 46 degrees Celsius. This hot water is rich in minerals and was believed by the Romans to possess healing powers, making it a prime destination for those seeking restoration.

However, the Roman Baths weren't just a place for bathing. They were also a hub for socializing, with an array of shops, restaurants, and even a temple dedicated to the goddess Sulis Minerva. This temple was of great significance to the Romans, as they believed that Sulis Minerva had the power to heal and protect.

The Roman occupation of Britain lasted from 43 AD to 410 AD, and during this time, Bath was known as Aquae Sulis, meaning "the waters of Sulis." The goddess Sulis was highly revered by the Romans, and her importance is evident in the name of the city and the temple dedicated to her.

Visiting the Roman Baths is truly a unique experience as it allows mew to step back in time and witness the intricate Roman architecture firstpaw. Mew can walk on the same stones that the Romans did and even drink the water from the hot spring. Overall, we really recommend a visit to the Roman Baths for anypawdy interested in history or seeking a one-of-a-kind and relaxing experience.

  1. Great selfie and artwork, mew guys! We love the green of that water in your art. We wonder what the water froma hot spring tastes like? Somehow it does not sound appetizing. But your Tasty Mix by Whiskas DOES sound delicious, so enjoy that! XO

  3. We hope you had a really great time in Bath. It certainly looks like you did. Mummy has also visited Bath - not just the Roman remains but also the Regency bits. She would love to visit again.
    As always, your art is spiffically epic - or do We mean epically spiffing (mol)?

  4. Well, it doesn't look like they have changed the water in all those years since! MOL
    But Bath is a wonderful place to visit if in search of what the Romans did for Britain. A good bath is just what those ancients needed by all account, and what modern day stressed folk still enjoy.

  15. England is one of the few Countries I didn't get to while I had all that chance. I have been ever sorry for that. And Bath is a place I would love to see. The Regency as well, but the Roman Bath...oh, be still my heart. Seriously.
