Swinburne describes Bath as being 'like a Queen enchanted.' The poet was only one of a long line of famous writers who have given Bath a native to resound through the ages. And if Bath be acknowledged a Queen of Cities, the valley in which she lives is a fairyland-especially in spring. 'It may well have been a spring morning nearly nineteen centuries ago when that unknown Roman, who had perchance heard native Britons speak of the wonder working waters of the West, resolved that here by the hot springs in the winding valley of the Avon should be a place where men might find health and happiness.'
