The Roman Baths, Bath

The Christmas break is over and today it was time to get myself back to university ready to start the new term. Mum and I decided to make the most of the last day with a stop off in Bath for a wander round the city and dinner. We also visited the Roman Baths, the best preserved of Roman bathing complexes in Europe.

Mid-afternoon on a Sunday in early January proved to be the ideal time to visit- it wasn't too busy and the setting sun and cool air made the place look stunning. Without children running all over the place, watching the misty steam rise over the blue-green water was wonderfully calming. I doubt that's how the baths would have been in their day but it was lovely nevertheless to just step back in time for an hour or so.







Even just looking back at the photos makes me feel relaxed - just what I need to do before my 12 hour day on the children's ward tomorrow!

  2. That looks wonderfully relaxing. I'm really hoping for a quiet day at work tomorrow and definitely not a 12 hour one. Keep thinking about the photos during your day tomorrow!

  3. Ahh Bath is so lovely, we took my Australian cousin there when she came to visit a few years ago! I almost slipped over about 10 times though walking around the baths, so slippy! x

    1. Haha, it wasn't too slippery when I went but I did stumble into a few holes in the uneven flooring! x
