City of Bath.
This week my wife and I had a pleasant couple of days in the city of Bath. It was the first time I have had any time in Bath to wander around and enjoy its history and architecture. We stayed in a lovely hotel just outside of Bath. The Waterhouse, is set in a lovely patch of countryside not far from the Kennet and Avon Canal. It was only a ten minute drive from Bath’s city centre and with a combination of a warm welcome from the staff and the hotel being clean and tidy, I would highly recommend a stay here.
Bath is a great city with amazing architecture which ever direction you look. The yellow Bath stone can be seen in most buildings and the vast streets of Georgian architecture is something to be seen.
At heart I am a country boy but every now and then I do enjoy a few days surfing the city life, I will look forward to visiting Bath again to uncover some more history and enjoy what this great city has to offer.
We were very lucky with the weather and managed to have a good walk around the city, including a visit to the Roman Baths. The Roman baths were excellent and far better than I had anticipated. Often when you queue up at these museums and attractions, you wonder whether the high entry price will be worth what is ahead of you but in this instance it certainly was. Not only is the site itself amazing, the layout and information available is outstanding. They provide an audio tour just like the one available at Cardiff castle. I am a big fan of these handheld style audio tours as you can walk about at your own pace deciding what you want to listen to.
Below are some bullet points about the Roman Baths in Bath.
Above are just a few interesting points I found out on my visit, as you will now know if you follow my blogs, I like to add a little history and information to accompany my images.
