Roman baths

View Europe 2023 on bonne vie's travel map.

In the afternoon we arrived at our Georgian accommodation built in 1875 - central location only two streets over from all key sites. Wednesday morning we went out early while it was cool and walked up to The Circus - Georgian townhouses with a Central Park in the middle. It is close to the size of the Rome coliseum roughly. Up the road is the Royal Mile houses for the wealthy and a filming site for Bridgerton. The park opposite is an illusion with a wall to keep the riff Taff off the toffs lawn.

We then headed back down through the streets to visit The Roman Baths. The exhibit and the baths were amazing and to think of the rich history there - we easily spent an hour and half. We tried the water from the fountain, it was warm and a funny after taste - lots of minerals in the water.

Next stop was Bath Abbey, where the first English King was crowned in 987 AD. There was many memorial stones on the walls and floors from early years all around. We then headed across to the river Avon. Pultney Bridge is right close to the river and is a bridge with shops like the Rialto in Venice. Nice for a wander coming back from the bridge across the street we walked through the Guildhall markets - like nick nacks shops under a building, but it was quite hot in there. After some gift shopping, food gathering we settled in for the night.
