Exploring England - Bath II

Here are some more pictures from our trip to Bath this Easter. 

These bluebells were in full bloom in the garden and the parks. Just love them!

Even if the pictures are not that great as they are taken with my Iphone (forgot the camera at home...) the setting sun made this garden rather magical.

I just loved the deep windows in our room where you could sit and look out at the amazing view.

We were really lucky with the weather and spent some lazy hours lounging in a park in town in between sight seeing. We used the CitySightSeeing buses which you can find in most British towns. It is an easy way to ensure you get to see all the important sights and you can jump on/off along the way all day. 

At the end of the sight seeing tour we got off the bus by the statue of Sulis Minerva who was the local goddess of the thermal spring in Bath in Roman time.

We actually came too late to see the Roman Baths as they were closed, but the souvenir shop let us go in and see the King's spring. 

We did manage to get a view of the restaurant in the Pump Room which has been regarded as the social heart of Bath for more than two centuries - also famously mentioned by Jane Austen. 
Next time a visit to the Jane Austen museum is also on the agenda.
Bath has a lot to offer - I will definitely go back!


  1. For en flott tid vi er inne i, og jeg ser dere har mye kjekt å ta dere til i fritiden:))
    Ha en fortsatt god helg alle sammen!

  2. Vi hadde en lynrask biltur gjennom Sør - England på vei til St Ives i 1996. Vi stoppet i Bath.

    For noen dager siden ble vi enige om at en biltur i England står på ferielisten. Det gjør også Edinburgh. Jeg forlater nødig gården om sommeren, så jeg vet ikke når det blir.
