We had a lovely weekend away in Bath, our first weekend together without the girls since Chloe was born nearly 3 years ago. If you’ve never been to Bath before it’s a great place to visit, a beautiful city renowned for its Georgian architecture and Roman Baths.
One of the most famous streets in Bath is The Circus.
But the premier address must be The Royal Crescent.
Pulteney Bridge is one of the few bridges in the world with shops built into it.
We stayed at the Francis Bath hotel which has a great location right in the city centre. We ate out courtesy of Tesco Clubcard points in Strada, Cafe Rouge and Pizza Express. On Saturday night we ate at Jamie’s Italian to celebrate Rachel’s birthday and had a fantastic meal. It’s the first time we’ve queued up to get into a restaurant but it was worth it. Whilst we waited for our table the cocktails went down well and then we were guided past the kitchens through to the back dining area which was really bustling with a lively atmosphere. We had the Anitpasti Meat Plank to share, Rachel had steak and I had lamb for main followed by Tirimasu and Chocalate Brownie for dessert washed down with a bottle of wine. A great evening.
There are loads of restaurants and cafes in Bath but the oldest is Sally Lunn’s where a pot of tea and a Sally Lunn bun is the done thing. We shared half of one, toasted with jam and clotted cream which was more than enough for late morning bite.
We had a fantastic weekend in Bath and being just an hour away by train I’m sure we’ll be back soon.
