  1. Great round up of things to do in Bath. I have never made it there. As with every place it’s on my to do list! It’s just so hard to leave London, but now that I have more visuals on Bath.. I might just make it 🙂

  2. Looks like a wonderful city, just gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to check out a Roman bath. Thanks for all the great suggestions for stuff to do in Bath.

  3. Bath is one of the very first cities I visited when I first started traveling and I really enjoyed it but too much time has passed and I realize that I missed so many great attractions – time to return for a visit I think!

  4. That’s a nice list of things to do in Bath. We went there for just half a day, and I wish it was longer, because I also wanted to see the fashion museum, and just walk around and find some places I knew from English literature. All we got to see were the Roman Baths, but without taking a bath. I didn’t even know that was a possibility!

  5. I briefly stopped in Bath on my way back from Stonehenge. Because it was late in the day, I was only able to stop into the Abbey and visit a few shops. I’d definitely like to go back one day!
