Hi all, apologies, it’s been rather busy here but without further ado I give you Bath for 2012:

When you’re standing on that bridge you have no way of knowing it’s a bridge because it has a road, pavements and is lined with shops like any other street!

Bath Abbey & The Roman Baths & The Pump Room

Bath Abbey & The Roman Baths & The Pump Room

Amazing how this little square in Bath contains so much of my favourite thing – History!

Bath Abbey sits straight ahead, to the right is the Pump Rooms, a famous and once fashionable place for the ton to meet and loiter and the Roman Baths sitting happily behind the Pump Room, like it has done for thousands of years…..

And of course this is just a beautiful city to see!

So, whether you want to admire the beauty of the Roman Baths:

Look at and try and imagine the splendour of bygone days whilst taking tea in the Pump Room:

 Walk around the incredible architecture of the Royal Crescent:

Bath Crescent - On one house there is a plaque describing an elopement of one of the women that lived there with a young man!

 Or just milling around, doing a little shopping, popping into the many art gallerys or museums, Bath is a lovely city to visit.

 

I have been and it remains one of my favourite places in England and my favourite part was Jane Austen’s house and Great Pultney Street (I cheated with two!!).

 

How about you? Have you been? What did you think? What was your favourite part?
