 Bath is a city in Somerset, founded by the Romans on the site of the only natural hot springs in Britain. It became a fashionable spa resort in Austen's time, where society would gather to drink the horrible-tasting mineral water, which was credited with restorative properties.

Austen lived unhappily in Bath from 1800 to 1806. Part of her novel Persuasion is set in the city.
