Traveling alone to Bath

Some go to Bath to capture bit of Jane Austen’s sensibility and bask in the fabulous 18th century architecture.

Some go to Bath for the shopping. High street chain stores as well as unique antique, gift and fashion shops make it a destination for shoppers. (I must confess to buying a pair of fabulous red boots.)

But, what really attracted me to Bath were the baths.

Don’t get me wrong, there is much to recommend in this beautiful, historic city. There’s the Mayor’s Guides Free Walking Tour that gives you a history of the city and a good walk around all the highlights. There’s the  Bath Abbey and Pump Room for a bit of historic extravagance. And two great spots for good value and atmosphere are The Bathtub Bistro and The Raven pub. But what I enjoyed the most was soaking up some history in the Roman Baths.
