Bath, England

The thermal springs in Bath, a city in Somerset, have been used since the Roman Empire controlled most of what is now England. Though you cannot take a dip in the bathhouses that the Romans constructed, you can visit their remains and see the hot water steaming in the ancient pools. Bath had a more recent renaissance in the 18th century and currently has some of the best remaining examples of Georgian architecture in the U.K.

The Thermae Bath Spa allows visitors to take advantage of the time-tested power of Bath's springs, which have more than 40 different minerals that can provide benefits to people suffering from skin ailments and chronic conditions.
