I strongly recommend taking a trip to Bath. Grant and Mandy took us, and it was so much fun to walk around and go into all of the shops. There are cobbled streets (I'm a little obsessed with these because we just don't have any in Los Angeles). But most importantly are the baths themselves. They have excavated these Roman baths there that are amazing to walk through. Not only were they used for healing the sick and to keep people clean, but people would toss offerings to different gods and goddesses written on pieces of lead into the main bath. The people sometimes asked for wishes to be granted, and sometimes they placed curses on other people!
