Bath is the type of city that you visit in your childhood dreams or your adult over active imagination. By that I mean that it can be compared to walking through a fairytale. There’s stunning architecture around every corner, the food is magical, and if you walk all the way around the city centre, you will find that you are surrounded by water. It feels like a mesmerizing historic city placed within in a snow globe.
Travel often requires a great deal of preparation and planning. So when Bobbi offered to be our tour guide in Bath, I jumped at the opportunity to sit back and not plan for once. Bobbi is such an expert on Bath, she even had her wedding reception there!
We met Bobbi right outside the train station in a quaint little cafe. She had a table ready for us and we indulged in a few rounds of coffees and teas while catching up. The last time I saw her was ages ago in the States, when we had our Wizarding World adventures. After our caffeine fix we started exploring the streets of Bath. We saw historic buildings with doors so beautiful that I would hang photos of them on my wall (and I probably will). There were stunning statues that immediately reminded you just how old Bath is. Even the street performers choose to showcase tricks and talents that make you feel as if you have stepped back in time.
We stopped into Sally Lunn’s for a cream tea. It’s no surprise that it is a world famous tea and eating house as I was treated to a Sally Lunn bun, which is one of the best things I have ever eaten. John was just as smitten with his bun and now I’m trying to figure out how to get them imported to the United States. We then explored the Bath Gardens, The Huntsman, and some adorable bookshops. Bath is definitely on my revisit list and next time I would love to spend even more time there.
