A Few Days in Bath

On Wednesday, March 14th, we decided to make one last trip while in England.  We took the 10:30 train to Bath in southwest England.  We found our hotel in downtown Bath and set out to find some lunch.  We spent the afternoon checking out some sights and went to the botanical gardens.  That night, we ate at the oldest restaurant in Bath, the Sally Lunn, dating back to 1482 and famous for the buns that they have been making since 1680.  Later, we had a pint at The Huntsman while watching the Chelsea v Naples football match.

The next day, we joined the free walking tour in the morning and got to see all the sights of Bath including the Royal Crescent, Abbey, Pulteney Bridge, and Roman baths.  Once the walking tour was finished, we hoped on a small tour bus going to Stonehenge.  It was about a 45 minute drive through the countryside to Stonehenge and it was very cool to see.  The tour continued on to a small village with very old buildings named Lacock.  Lacock is very beautiful and has hosted film crews shooting such things as Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter.

On our last day in Bath, we took it easy and enjoyed some tea with scones and clotted cream.  After a great couple days, we caught the 1:00 train back to London.
