Bath is somewhere I’ve always, always, wanted to visit.
A few weeks into Uni, there was a trip on offer to go to Stonehenge and Bath. I may, or may not have almost left it slightly too late and almost missed the tickets, but all was fine. Ollie was also able to hop along for this trip, so I wasn’t left lonesome.
There was a lot of travelling involved, I think we ended up spending about 7 hours on the coach in total, but it was worth it.
I should probably give Stone henge some credit whilst I’m here. It was fascinating, a little smaller than I expected actually, as in it covered less ground that I envisaged, I’m sure the majority of you have heard the conspiracy theories surrounding the site.. aliens? Giants? Who knows.
The size, and positioning of some of the stones really does get you wondering..
Stone henge is shrouded in mystery.
We spent a few hours at this incredibly historic and famous world heritage site, before heading off to Bath.
Bath, ahhh, upon arrival I fell in love.
I actually snoozed on the coach and woke as we were just entering Bath. I was welcomed by cute terraced houses, and they only got more elegant and larger as we traveled further into the centre.
The street’s were immaculately clean. The centre was busy, but felt sophisticated, filled with class, yet so homely.
Other than bumping in to a few drunken, and rather rowdy men mid-afternoon, I have nothing bad to say about Bath.
We ended up residing from the crowds in a small Cornish inspired cafe, and ate wedges and a pastie, and chatted over a latte and iced tea.
half a day is no where near enough to give you a true feel for this place, but as a first taster, I’m itching to go back and explore more. I would highly recommend taking a trip to Bath if you ever get the chance. It’s totally different to other English cities, and holds a completely different atmosphere than the likes of Manchester or London.
I would love to live here for a little, at some point in my life.
The city was golden as we left and we we were treated to the view of the sun setting over the city through the coach window on the journey home.
Bath – we’ll be back again soon!
Love, as always,
