Bath and the Cotswolds. England's most beautiful village

So how is it that Bath has become one of the most beautiful cities in England? Surprisingly, it's even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The answer is simple: it happened in the 18th century, when the thermal spa became quite a fashionable place among the English nobility. This happened largely thanks to the efforts of Richard Boe Nash - the famous dandy and trendsetter in England: he was appointed master of ceremonies, which is engaged in the organization of entertainment for the visiting public. Under him, Bath became so popular with tourists that the city authorities decided to rebuild the city streets in a style which would correspond to the splendor and fashion of the new time.
