At the end of October I was lucky enough to spend the day in the beautiful city of Bath. I had never been to Bath before but have always wanted to go having seen lots of lovely photos. I was only in Bath for a day trip but I really got a feel for the city and managed to pack a lot in!
The first place we visited was obviously the Roman Baths, I mean this is definitely one of the biggest tourist spots in Bath. I really didn’t know what to expect from the Baths, but it was a really fun place to visit. Although I’m not super into Roman history, I really enjoyed seeing the baths. We walked around the baths where there is a tour (you can get audio tours as well when you pay entry) and lots of information on the History of the baths. Once you have gone through all the history you get brought out into the middle of the Baths and in between all of the beautiful Roman pillars is a huge bath of water shimmering in the sunlight.
I loved visiting the Baths as I felt I really got to see some of the history of the city. Although you do have to pay to visit the baths at about £16 for an adult, I would recommend going as it’s such a spectacular piece of history. And even better is the fact that the Bath Abbey stands beautifully just outside of the baths and that is really one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. Bath Abbey is a huge gothic church with such amazing intricate details!
The next place we visited was Pulteney Bridge, which was a short walk from the Baths and had the most amazing views over the River Avon. There are also some really lovely spots to grab a quick drink or a bite to eat. There was a really lovely cafe overlooking the river right on the bridge which we went into to get a drink. It was really relaxing and everyone was really welcoming.
We then ventured onto Green Park Station to visit a market, which is such a cool place. However, we arrived at around 4pm which was a little bit too late as the market had pretty much already closed and there were only a few stalls still open. So I would say if you wanted to visit here do it first to get the full experience!
The final place we decided to visit was the Royal Crescent which is a row of terraced houses that form a crescent shape overlooking a huge green. Again this was such a spectacular thing to see and was a lot bigger than I had first anticipated. A lot of people were sitting on the green just taking in the view.
As you can tell every inch of Bath is beautifully historic and picturesque. I had the most amazing day exploring all of the historic tourist spots as well as the more modern parts of the city and would love to return. Bath is beautiful and I’ve heard they also have an amazing Christmas market! So maybe a visit in the festive period is needed!
I love visiting different places in the UK and I’d love some new recommendations! Where are your favourite places to visit?
