A Day Out in Bath


Bath, situated in Somerset, is brimming with things to see and do. Bath presents some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, definitely a place worth visiting, especially when it’s sunny!

We visited back in August, hoping for a sunny day. It started well, and then the clouds came over and the rain came down…but not to worry, as there were plenty to still see and do which meant the rain wouldn’t spoil the day.

One of the main attractions to see is the Roman Baths. Britain’s only hot spring, the Romans built a magnificent temple and bathing complex that still flows with natural hot water. Here you get to see the water’s source and walk where Romans walked on the ancient stone pavements around the steaming pool. You can even have a glass of water from the source! Free with your admission ticket, otherwise 50p a glass.

Even if you don’t visit the Roman Baths, there is so much architecture to take in when you walk through Bath, along every street there is something to see. We managed to even spend some time looking at a photo exhibition that was on the streets.

Another site to go to would be the Circus and Royal Crescent, easy to walk to and a site worth seeing. The Royal Crescent is one of the world’s best-known landmarks. Built between 1767 and 1775, the crescent contains some 30 houses.

So lots to see and do, with only a 2-hour train ride from London, definitely worth visiting.

    Bath is a great city to bring a Jane Austen novel to, especially "Persuasion".
