Healing waters of Bath

I have been to Bath a few times as my cousin used to live here, but I think my best trip was my most recent spa trip with a gaggle of girls.

The new therme spa is quite an experience & I would urge visitors to Bath to pack their bathing suits (swimming costumes etc) & pre-book a session.

Bath is full of unusual quaint shops, expensive yes but worth a look!! I missed a visit to the Jane Austen Centre but bear in mind she was not born here but she did write some of her novels here.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Thermespa, beautiful architecture
  • Cons:lots of tourists & tourist prices

    Loved Bath...though what we did mostly was drive in circles...had not figured out the whole English driving thing yet!!

    Jo, interesting and funny page about Bath. Unfortuntaly I never made it to this tourist gem. The Greenhouse and the Vom Fass shop seem to be well worth a visit. ;-)

    Looks like you and the "Gaggle of Girls" had a fun time in Bath. Interesting tip about the window tax & how people boarded up their windows to avoid it. Hansi would have loved the Bath Humbug Shop.

    I really like your Bath page, it brings back so many memories. I remember laughing about the bricked up windows, but when you can save on taxes, why not??
