Bath – September 5, 2020

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.

 

If you go down in the woods today
You’re sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today
You’d better go in disguise!
For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain
Because today’s the day the
Teddy Bears have their picnic
