My biggest regret about going to Bath is NOT STAYING LONGER.
Bath had been a bit of a stopover trip between us seeing the Stonehenge, to going to Brighton, so when we got to Bath we had 5 hours to explore.
Since it had been a very spontaneous trip, we had no idea where to go and what to see, so first things first, we headed to the tourism office.
When we got there we bought a ticket for the ‘Hop On, Hop Off’ buses that went around the main tourist sites. However, just as we were about to’ hop on’ one, we realised that the Roman Baths would close in a couple of hours and that was something we really wanted to see. So, we headed down to the Roman Baths.
Bath is one of the prettiest places I’ve seen in England. I absolutely loved it there. It was very busy and bustling with life, but it didn’t seem huge and daunting like I sometimes find London.
Because we spent so long at the Roman Baths, we didn’t end up having enough time to use our tickets for the ‘Hop On, Hop Off’ bus, which was a shame and a waste of money, but I had a lovely time all the same, and hope I can go back soon to have a proper exploration.
It took a while to find the entrance, but eventually we got there! When we got in, we picked up a free audio-guide, (if you don’t know already, I LOVE audio-guides) and did a quick tour around the baths.
I absolutely loved it, the audio-guides were very detailed and explained everything that was on exhibit. The exhibits were laid out really well and it was easy to find your way around. The highlight was definitely being able to go right down to the main bath.
It is definitely something I’d recommend doing. It’s very interesting learning about the history of the baths and the people that used them.
