Bath and Bath Skyline

When: June 06, 2015
Where: Bath, England
How to get there? Train stop at Bath Spa from London Paddington which takes around 1.5 hours and can be really expensive (like at least 50 pounds return) so make sure you book early.

The City of Bath

Pultney Bridge 

The Cathedral

The Roman Baths

It has a nice Roman Bath which you need to pay. Personally not that exciting. I have seen this a long time ago and it is OK.  I rather walk around the city.


Sally Lunn's 

"Sally Lunn’s is much more than a world famous tea and eating house in the centre of the wonderful city of Bath England. This historic building is one of the oldest houses in Bath. Their kitchen museum shows the actual kitchen used by the legendary young Huguenot baker Sally Lunn in Georgian Bath to create the first Bath bun – an authentic regional speciality now known the world over."

And the Food
It is pretty good actually and not that expensive.   A savory bun will cost around 8 pounds, and plus Sally Lun's Home made blend tea for 2.80 pounds.

Salt Beef Bun

The Vegetarian Trencher
It is Ratatouille on a bun

The Welsh Rarebit Special
It is very similar to Croque Monsieur

And there's a museum downstairs where you can see where Sally Lunn originally baked the bun and where you can buy a bun for 1.80 pounds (and if you buy 3, you get 1 for free)

Bath Skyline

On a nice sunny weather, you can most likely do a day hike along the Bath Skyline and get a great view of the city of Bath. Here is the link for the Bath Skyline and is actually under the National Trust. Part of the path will lead you to Prior Park Landscape Garden which has a beautiful Palladian Bridge on a pond.

Sham Castle

It "is a folly in Bathampton overlooking the city of Bath, Somerset, England. It is a Grade II* listed building.[1] It is a screen wall with a central pointed arch flanked by two 3-storey circular turrets, which extend sideways to a 2-storey square tower at each end of the wall.[1] It was probably designed around 1755 by Sanderson Miller and built in 1762 by Richard James, master mason for Ralph Allen, "to improve the prospect" from Allen's town house in Bath.[2] Sham Castle is now illuminated at night." (Wikipedia)

It is a nice folly .. seems like you have a small castle and you can be the big giant!
