We checked out, waived good-bye to London and took a train to Bath. It was only an hour and a half trip and dropped us right in town. We found our B&B called the Highway House and checked in.
The little town is quaint and expensive. We walked down the cobblestone streets looking in the shop windows and stumbled into the Roman Bathhouse Museum. We purchased tickets and walked around listening to the audio tour as it lead us room to room showing the ruins of what was left and the still flowing thermal waters which were the cause of this great bathhouse to be built. We took pictures and spent a couple hours touring. The main bath outside was the size of a pool with statues overlooking it. You could see the steam rising off the water and although the sign warned not to touch or drink the water…mom dipped her hand in to feel the temperature. We of course teased her of all the cooties she had just picked up.
We were all super hungry and went on a search for food. We saw a sign that read, Jaimie Oliver’s Italian. The place was huge and had open kitchens and fresh food. We ordered small dishes and shared, tasting things like house-made polenta chips, chopped root salads and meringue with berries and creme fraise.
After dinner we walked over towards the Royal Crescent area which is a residential area full of huge homes. After some pictures, made our way back to the B&B for a good night sleep.
