Bath is lovely. Pretty buildings that are golden in the evening light. People were friendly and there was lots to see and do. Roman Baths impressive. Bus tour good but cold! Highlight of trip was visit to Sally Lunns - famous bun shop and real old building. We ate far too much and will remember it forever! (See picture)
So beautiful - Terry-Jo. Date of travel: Aug 2005
Bath is wonderful. We were there a few days, and I really wish we'd had some more time just to be able to walk down those gorgeous little streets, sit at the cafés, and talk to the locals. Filled with boutiques and cafés, bath feels as though it's always in relaxed-mode, with the characteristic clay-coloured houses, and beautiful waterways. We stayed at the Newton Mill campsite, which was lovely! I've been to many built-up campsites before, but this one was so beautiful and so well-equipped, that we were glad to camp instead of staying at budget accommodation. The campsite is quite magical, and has its own bistro, and even offered a Morris Dancing show, which was great fun :) The town managed to maintain its sense of character and history and is exceptionally beautiful - a brilliant place if you just want a time out, and just a few hours from London. The people really make the place too - so welcoming and so calm. I suppose it can be rather touristy, but coming from London, it was nothing!
