Accommodation: Bath YMCA [ Perfect location, clean rooms/bathrooms and friendly staff! ]
Pretty cool: You can’t visit Bath and not tour the ancient roman baths. Nearly 2,000 years ago, the same bath you will see today was used as a place of socializing and relaxation. According to the Roman Bath Museum, it is one of the most well-preserved Roman sites in the world.
Don’t miss it: Pack your swimsuit and head to the Thermae Bath Spa an hour before sunset. Relax in the rooftop bath while overlooking the city below. It’s very therapeutic after a long day of exploring. Indoors, there are several saunas with therapeutic aromas. After a long day of walking around the town, you’ll enjoy this “me time.”
Wish I had more time for: Nothing! We stayed for the perfect amount of time [ two nights ].
Must try food/drink: An afternoon tea or coffee in a café on the Pulteney Bridge overlooking the River Avon.
Here’s a hint:
- Visit the Pump Room Restaurant and ask the host/hostess to try the hot spa water, which contains 43 minerals. Legend has it, you will live for 100 years if you drink it. You don’t need to dine at the restaurant for a taste of it.
- There is an excellent free walking tour through the Mayor’s Guides.
