Bath, England, is the place I picture when I think of a lady in the 1800s promenading along the streets in her grand corset dress. The houses are absolutely stunning, and you immediately feel like you’ve been transported back in time (yet, taken technology with you).
The town itself sits in the bowels of a bath shape (as the name suggests) and is surrounded by beautiful countryside views. Climb up one of the many steep hills on the edge of the town, and you’ll be presented with stunning views.
If you visit, I highly recommend taking the tour of the Roman Baths. Despite it being a major tourist attraction, it really is worth it. I also recommend going on the free walking tour of the city. You’ll pass all the major historical sites, including the impressive Royal Crescent.
As for food, Bath is packed with amazing cafes and restaurants. I highly recommend The Bertinet Bakery. They have the most incredible pastries and bread. You have to get the chocolate & almond croissant, it is seriously amazing! There is also great fish and chips at The Scallop Shell. And as for coffee, go to the ever cute and modern cafe, Colonna & Small’s or one much the same called Society Cafe.
Bath was one of my highlights when I visited England in the winter and would definitely recommend it to everyone. It has endless amounts of history, great food, amazing shops and is home to very friendly people. What more could you want!
