Travelling to Bath we got the X39 Bus from Bristol
For those of you who have been to Bath, you know! And for those of you who haven’t it is definitely a place to add to your list.
Steeped in history and beautiful architecture, it is a beautiful city for a walking tour and you definitely need to visit the Roman Baths. We were very lucky with the weather, a crispy cold, clear sky winters day. You can spend alot of time wandering the city with its beautiful architecture, historic streets and beautiful views.
We were there for about 6 hours and in that time walked the city and saw the Abbey, The Circus and The Royal Crescent.
As we were on route to Cardiff we had luggage with us and it was very handy to leave our bags at Cafe au Lait (they have a left luggage service, the bus/train station does not).
Map & Discounts
I picked up a map in the cafe. A beautifully handdrawn map (BathSussedOut) and it comes with an app that also has offers and discounts. We got 10% discount off the Roman Baths and 3 hours for the price of 2 in the Thermae Spa. (The spa is quite expensive but the view from the rooftop pool is amazing.)
Bath Abbey is a unique piece of Gothic architecture, the details of the church is beautiful. Built in 1499 Bath’s splendid Abbey, , marks the very centre of the town.
The exhibition was easy to follow through the building. Amazing artifacts and architecture. A great experience for old and young. Well worth a visit. Admission is 15pounds
My Travel Tip – If you have only a limited amount of time in a place to sightsee, make a list of things you want to see, then halve it and be realistic about the time you have. Don’t try to cram too much into your visit.
