Travelling inside the UK - Bath for Easter

Wednesday, May 04, 2016

If you have never been to Bath, now it's the perfect time to go!

Me and my boyfriend decided to spend Easter somewhere in the UK and Bath sounded just the right place. And we were not wrong about it - was just the perfect destination!

Bath is such a lovely little city, famous for its beautiful architecture, iconic sights, and fascinating history.

We visited the Roman Baths, one of the finest historic sites in Northern Europe, and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the UK. The Roman Baths are below the modern street level and have four main features, the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House and finds from Roman Bath. The tour is quite interesting and you can have a look at it here.

The food in Bath is so amazing! We went for lunch a the Pulteney Bridge Restaurant, near the end of the bridge, and had the best pasta seafood ever. 

The Madrid Tapas Restaurant was as great! With a small but full of flavour menu, this family owned business located in the heart of the city centre didn't stop impressing. Dish after dish after dish... We couldn't just stop eating... the grilled goat cheese and the famous patatas bravas were my favourites.

For dinner, we chose the oldest restaurant in Bath (probably the oldest in England?) - the Sally Lunn's - famous for its buns (which were really yami!). The bun is wonderful with both sweet or savoury toppings and comes alive when it is toasted – the flavours and aromas will stay for a long time.

The best part was spending the afternoon in the thermal spa Thermae. We were able to enjoy an open air rooftop warm pool (while raining...), bathe in the natural thermal waters of the Minerva Bath, spend some time in the steam rooms, each infused with a different aromatic essence, and cherish a treatment to relax.

Thermae has great spa packages, some at affordable prices. Do book in advance if you are going to spend the weekend or a bank holiday.
