When Trivago asked me to spend some time in Bath researching for the best hotels in town and write an article Bath: the perfect weekend getaway from London, it was a matter of seconds and I immediately said yes! and jumped on the first plane.
I had already been to Bath on a day trip when I was hired to photograph and write about the Bristol International Balloons Festival a few years ago, but a day in Bath wasn’t enough to see everything that the city has to offer. This time, I spent over a week in Bath, exploring the city and the surroundings and you can read everything for the perfect weekend away here and if you are looking for the perfect hotel, here are my suggestions on Trivago.
TOP 5 MUST DOs IN BATH
1 BATH ABBEY
Climb the 212 steps to the top where you can get incredible views of the entire city and beyond.
2 ROMAN BATHS
Get a clear idea of how the ancient Romans treated themselves before the modern SPAs.
3 THE CIRCUS AND THE ROYAL CRESCENT
I never get enough of architecture – one of my (many) childhood dreams was to become an architect – so this full and half-circle of limestone houses is not just a pleasant surprise to the eye, but also the perfect setting for a (thousands) Instagram shots.
4 THE FOODIE BUGLE
If you live in London or Bath, this is the place to go if you are in need of super cute and vintage homeware. It also serves tea, coffee and cakes.
5 SOCIETY CAFE
Not one, but two venues of this coffee institution that serves single origins beans along with great snacks and cakes.
