Simon luxuriates in suds. Bruce gets a plug in (obviously)

Bathtubs aren't something that most of us spend a lot of time thinking about. Unless you're remodelling a home, you probably don't even think about the noble bath. But it's hard to beat the tub as a place for winding down, cleaning up, and generally finding a sense of well-being. This time, we go into the history of the tub, its use over the ages, and why you would want to spend vast amounts of money on one. As always, click on the pics to go down inescapable plugholes.
