My sister gave me a voucher for a mystery trip at the end of last year as a gift for my birthday which I was pretty excited about cashing in this weekend as she does great mystery trips and it is always fun to go on adventures with my sister.
Overnight I stayed at my sister’s new place in Bristol that she shares with a friend, it’s another great place (you can see some of her previous flats here and here). We didn’t actually have the damson jam as we couldn’t open the jar (haha, feeble!) so we had honey instead. Then we headed out on the train to Bath which is only a short ride away.
These are the Roman Baths, it was especially interesting to see these having just been to Rome. My favourite fact was that the street level next to the baths is now 4 meters higher than it was in Roman times.
We had morning tea in the Pump Room, very civilised.
Bath seems a very good place for cute little shops and cafes. While Bristol seems to have more of an alternative edge, Bath has so many pretty streets. We ate at the River Cottage Canteen, really good kippers and chocolate brownies.
The Royal Cresent.
Thank you for the fun adventure Rose! :)
