The setting of "The Rivals" is in the city of Bath in England.

Bath is situated 97 miles (156 km) west of London.

The poster above is correct. Bath was the hot vacationing spot (and continues to be) for the elite of London. There, women would show off the latest fashions, worn around town and to elaborate parties. Marriage proposals were often made in Bath and many couples honeymooned there as well.
