Your Guide to a Day Trip to: Bath

I went to Bath a few years ago now on a family trip to Wiltshire. My mum, sister and I took my grandma and her two sisters back to the family home they grew up in and learning about all our family history on the way. It was actually a really lovely 1 week break and I was so grateful to be able to get the time off work to go. Bath is the largest city in the county of Somerset, England, known for and named after its Roman-built baths. It is also in the valley of the River Avon. 

1. Marvel at the Roman Baths. The city’s premier attraction, the Roman Baths have been attracting visitors for 2,000 years! It's built around natural hot springs and still to this day is functional, making it really feel like the ancient Roman period of time. 

2. Relax at the Thermae Bath Spa. The spa uses the water from the three natural hot springs, so you can swim between relaxing treatments or visits to the aromatherapy rooms. It's a once in a lifetime experience! 

3. Visit the Bath Abbey. Made with the famous yellow Bath stone, this is a building with gothic architecture. 

4. Walk by the Circus. These are an arc shaped pristine row of homes. They are breathtakingly beautiful, especially in the sunshine. 

5. Sunbathe in the Parade Gardens. One of the most beautiful areas was the park. We left my grandma there for a little while before enjoying some cake and drinks. They had some beautiful flower arrangements around, and it was very well kept. 

6. Shop around. I came across so many unique shops, alongside the traditional high street shops, and I fell in love with some of the jumpsuits! 

7. Enjoy the buskers. There was a number of different entertainment around the city, especially the baths themselves. From music to performance artists. 

8. Listen to the band. Similarly, the park in the summer has a lovely traditional brass band play in the band stand!

9. View the Pulteney Bridge. Designed to impress, now a tourist hot spot. 

10. Admire the Monks Mill ruins. This is one of the few ruins left in the city and sadly there isn't much information on it, but it's located near the park and lovely to see. 

Anything you would recommend to do in Bath should I find myself back there?
