Bath is about a 2 hour drive from South Bucks – that is if the M4 isn’t shut down for a few junctions. That was annoying because it sent us down several backwoods routes.
Bath itself is wonderful. As you can tell throughout the blog, I am generally in awe of the Romans. Seeing a Roman bathhouse was amazing. It is the best preserved Roman bath/spa around. Apparently if you want something to be preserved for 1000s of years, just bury it in dirt like a time capsule like every 5th Grade class does.
Bath also has the Bath Abbey next to the Roman Baths. It has a very European feel to it compared to many places in England. I kept doing a double-take thinking I was in France half the time.
I highly recommend this city if you like old stuff, very walkable cities & cider.
