RECENTLY: BATH


Having (shamefully) never been to Bath, I was stunned at how much I fell in love with the city while I was there recently.  The photos (while not wonderful & taken with my iPhone), hopefully in some way show the beautiful architecture and stone work there.  Obviously the Roman Baths have a massive presence in the the city but there seems to be so much more than that.  In many ways Bath reminded me of Edinburgh, where I used to live.  It had a similar atmosphere too - isn't it funny how you can arrive in a place and instantly feel at home?  For me, Bath was one of those places. I could have spent a lot longer there and will definitely be back, hopefully soon.

Have you been?  Is there anywhere unmissable I should go next time?  Perhaps a spot to get some lunch, a great little shop, local secrets?  Fill me in!  Oh and enjoy the weekend, friends!

  2. these look so lovely!! your colours are always so enviable, jo. :)

    as for bath, i've only been once, when i was 15 or so, with my father - and it was a quick visit, as we only had a few hours. he wanted to show me his childhood home, and as we got there, the new occupants are just leaving, but offered to give us a look around (so nice of them!). it was weird seeing it for him, i'm sure, but it made him so happy, that i was ok with giving the roman baths a pass after that. hopefully i'll make it there again one day...

  9. Hi Jo,

    A bit late to the post, but I just wanted to say that you have captured Bath wonderfully. I live in Bath and completely take it for granted that I get to walk these streets and be surrounded by such beautiful architecture. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit. If you are out and about again, a few places to try are The Fashion Museum and The Holburne; Society Cafe has -the- best hot chocolates and if you're after crafty goodies - The Makery Emporium is definitely worth popping into. :D

    Love your blog by the way!

    Kim
