Bath, The Hot Baths

View of visitors to the Hot Baths at Bath, which were opened in 1778 and designed by John Wood the Younger. The building is in the Palladian style and is simple and not particularly decorated. The internal layout is symmetrical and centred around the octagonal Bath. Besides the bath there are lobbies, dressing rooms, and private slip baths. Like other of Bath's baths, this bath was in use in the middle ages, but was rebuilt several times. The water in Bath's springs was thought to have curative properties and invalids flocked here to bathe and drink.
