    1. It means that old imperial glamour can still be noticed in those buildings. The atmosphere of that glamour survives to the present day.

    2. "Head as one" means "Move in that direction as if they were one person".

    3. "Catch out the inwary" means to surprise those who don't know about the hot water jet. "Blasted by a boiling jet" means subjected to a stream of hot water.

    4. "Emphasis on" means that is the main feature (simple and functional).
    "Eased tenderly" means gently taken by the hand" or "gently led".

    5. It theoretically explains the benefit of bathing in spa water. After thousands of years, the remains of decayed plants and herbs have formed a film of Moor (layer on the water which contains the remains of plants of the Moor). This cocktail (mixture) of various substances might make you healthier.
