Where I stayed
University of Bath
Finally finding the right bus we made our way to our accommodation at the University of Bath. We also found out there is another University in Bath - Bath Spa University. Useless piece of info there. It was out of term time at the University so it was quiet and relaxing. Only a 5 minute ride out of town it was one of the best places we have stayed. Cheap too. We spent around 2 hrs relaxing on the grass near a large pond under a big tree
Our first afternoon in Bath was spent exploring the Roman Baths. Wow. Not only are there actual Roman baths to see (kind of like Hanmer Springs but older) but there is a museum of Roman arterfacts which were found at that site. We spent over 2 hours here and were not disappointed.
That night we went on the Bizarre Bath comedy tour. Not a history tour - but a comedy tour - of Bath. Very funny.
The next day we spent relaxing and exploring. Martin had a tour of the Old Theatre Royal and Masonic Museum. He was even approached about being a Mason. Haha. I spent that time keeping out of the stinking hot sun and made my wish list of wants if we have shopping money at the end of this trip!
Instead of going out for dinner that night we paid £1 each to enter a private garden which sits alongside the River Avon and had a picnic
That night we stayed in town people watching. We sat outside the Roman Baths and got to see the whose who of Bath enter for a wedding reception...ohhh la la.
Bath was simply stunning, simply sensational. So worth a visit and so worth strolling the streets to get lost and find your way.
We were sad to leave Bath but happy to continue our jouney!
