Bath is an unusual city because it was built for leisure and health.
Most of the houses were built in the eighteenth century when Bath became
a fashionable place. The houses were built with the pale golden-coloured
stone from the nearby hills. Some of the terraces in Bath were built in
crescent or circular shape. Some of the streets in Bath are closed to
cars, so walking around, relaxation and pleasant conversation are as
popular as they were in the eighteenth century. In those days the
favourite meeting place was the social center of Bath, a building called
“The Pump Room”. Here you can drink tea in the elegant atmosphere of the
eighteenth century. The Pump Room was built over a spring, where natural
hot water comes up from the underground. This water contains minerals
which are good for you. The English were not the first to enjoy this
warm, healthy water. The Romans built hot baths, swimming pools, and a
temple here nearly two thousand years ago. The Roman Bath was fonded in
1878 and now ut’s stil work there. Near Bath you can visit beautiful
gardens and classical country houses. Devon. Around the world there are
about forty Plymouths-all named by people who sailed from this town in
sixteenth and seventeenth century. In the early seventeenth century men
and woman left from here to build a new life in America. The English
Plymouth of today is Devons largest city. Its an interesting city to
visit and many of the houses overlooking the sea are hotels, guest
houses and bed and breakfast. A bed and breakfast is a private house
which offers a room and a breakfast. Guest houses are like hotels but
usually smaller and cheaper. The countryside of Devon has narrow country
roads with high banks on both sides, which protect you from the wind.
Devon is a green hilly county with many rivers and estuaries. Salcombe
is a popular holiday town on the Kingsbridge Estuary. Here you can hire
a boat and explore. Its one of the most popular places in Britain for
sailing. One reason for its popularity is climate. This area is the most
southernmost part of Britain, so its little warmer than elsewhere.
Another good thing is absence of big modern hotels. They are not allowed
in this protected area of natural beauty. The local drink in Devon is a
strong cider called scrumpy. Its made of apples, using a traditional
process. When the apples have been cut up, the pieces are scooped up
with a wooden shovel and carried to a press. The lid of the press is
placed on top, making a giant sandwich. The cogwheels begin to turn and
the juice is squeezed out, quickly at first. A few month from now this
apple juice will be a good scrumpy.
