Read The author’s take

Could we imagine being without Bath? England, Britain, the World would be significantly poorer if it had never been created, for Bath has culturally enriched our lives over the centuries. That’s why the city is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, a status that it shares with the Taj Mahal, the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Wall of China, for providing ‘outstanding universal value to the whole of humanity’.
