So this post is super super late! I meant to write a part two about my trip to Bath a few months ago but never got around to it, whoops! But I thought I would still write the post and put the pictures up anyway.  Better late than never, as people say!

You can read all about our first day in the beautiful city of Bath here – A Long Weekend in Bath….(part one) .  We explored the cute lodges we were staying in, did a walking tour of the city, visited the scrumptious Sally Lunn’s Bunns and watched the fireworks over the Pulteney Bridge.

On the Sunday we started the day with a trip to the world famous Roman Baths.  When I think of the city of Bath they are one of the first things that come to mind.  Over one million people visit each year!

You are given an audioguide with the price of your admission.  There are different numbered stops which you type into the remote and it plays back information to you.  I like that you could take it all at your own pace and skip parts you wanted.

Here is me demonstrating the audioguide  *cringe*

The history of the Baths is fascinating.  Although mostly ruins, you can actually imagine them at the time of the Romans.  You can envision how grand they were and people travelling to them for socialising and relaxing.

At the end of the tour you can sample some of the hot spring water.  I must admit it has a pretty weird taste but you can’t help but feel healthier after a few sips…

Next we visited Queen Square.  The autumn leaves were out in full force so we couldn’t resist trying to get the standard ‘leaves falling all around me’ insta shot.  I even convinced Martyn to have a go! It definitely took us a few attempts and I’m not sure we fully mastered it but hey ho…

With hungry bellies it was then time to grab some grub.  We were enticed by the beautiful looking restaurant ‘Crystal Palace’.  The food was delicious and the restaurant had a very nice ambience.  I would definitely recommended if you are ever in Bath.

Lastly I couldn’t help getting a picture of the Bath Retro Store outside the restaurant, it looked so magical all lit up!

I had an absolutely magical and relaxing time in the city of Bath, so much so that I didn’t want to leave.  I would love to go back in the summer and also for the Christmas market.  I hear it is amazing! Do let me know in the comments if you have been.
