Snapshots of the City of Bath

A couple weeks back we spent three days in the city of Bath in England. Originally intended solely as a distraction trip, it really turned into so much more. The city of Bath is somewhere I’d want to return to again and again. The city itself was absolutely gorgeous, the people were friendly, the food was good, and we were able to explore the entire city on foot – a major plus in my book.

With a history dating back to the AD 60s, Bath is one of the oldest cities I’ve ever visited, and also quite possibly one of the prettiest. (Although, a few I saw in India could rival that statement on both counts!) It rained about 90% of the time we were in Bath, but on one lovely morning, the clouds broke for a few hours and I was able to get some sunnier photos of the city. You’ll find both the sunny and the rainy snapshots of Bath below, because as it turns out, Bath actually looks just as good in the rain as it does in brighter weather. (At least in photographs, anyway!)

While the photos below are some of my favorites from the trip, they do not include the most famous sights in Bath. (I am saving those for later posts!) Whenever I return from a vacation, I always find that I have a collection of lovely photos from wherever we’ve been that don’t necessarily fit into any particular category for a post, but are still certainly worth sharing. And so, before I start getting into the city’s history and the things we did while in Bath, and to keep these photos from being forever lost in the dark recesses of my hard drive, I give you the “we-don’t-belong-anywhere-else” photos of Bath!

    These ‘don’t-belong-anywhere-else’ photos are beautiful! A friend of mine went to bath to learn English some years ago and said it was a gorgeous place full of history but she never showed any picture, so I’m looking forward to you posts loaded of history and photos :)

    Have a lovely day, Sarah!

    I love these ‘random’ photos! I’ve never been to Bath, but it’s on my list. Probably good to combine with a trip to London. Thanks for sharing these photos.

    You managed to get a lot of sunny pictures for how much it rained. I read a fiction book recently that takes place in England and they are in Bath for a part of it and after reading the book it totally made me want to go there and now I want to go there more :)
