    18 things you must do on a road trip to Bath.

    Bath, old friend, we meet again. This time, I’ve brought a new chum (the infamous Kelly) back to your gorgeous Georgian terraces. This time I won’t be staying for 10 days, it isn’t my first Christmas in the UK and I won’t be leaving you and using you as a base to explore the county. But, we will however be re-sampling as many of your delights as we can.

Take a stroll in the Golden hour past the Mayor’s office (on a previous trip I learned that one of the Mayors collected peppercorns, a traditional subsititue for rent as peppercorns used to be so expensive? One time we joined one of the volunteer walks, and found ourselves IN the mayors office where he displayed his peppercorn collection.)

    Bath #travelthursday

    Bath, I love you.

     

    Your honey coloured Georgian Terraces, the fascinating history, the infamous Sally Lunn Buns, the canals, the fact that you are a day trip from London, your Christmas Bauble shop…

      

    The industrial heritage dotted about the landscape:

    My mate Johnny Depp’s house in the Grand Circle Circus (can you tell I was a little sleep deprived whilst drafting this?)

    Not to mention the Bath Knob Shop.

     

     

    The Roman baths themselves, and of course the canals threading through the city centre.

     

     

    What is your favourite city break?

    Nipa Thai at the Royal Lancaster Hotel: Travelling to Thailand by Fork

    I haven’t yet graced the shores of Thailand, but in my dreams it’s a fragrant tropical paradise. One with coral seas and sparkling white beaches where the air is redolent with… massaman curry. Disclosure: We were guests of Nipa Thai, a delicious restaurant in the Royal Lancaster Hotel – it’s always, always a pleasure to dine there. All random musings are mine and mine only as ever.
