The Roman Baths in Bath, England

 

Bath, EnglandBath, EnglandAfter visiting Stonehenge, there was one more must-see landmark I wanted to see in England before flying back to Canada–Bath. Although I couldn’t see everything in England, after London, I knew I wanted to make it to Stonehenge and Bath. Bath is a small city of about 90,000 people, popular for its thermal water, old palladium style bridge, Sydney House, Sydney Gardens, Roman ruins, and because it’s the city where Jane Austin used to live. Bath is also a beautiful place to visit because in the distance you can see Wales in the horizon.

Bath, England5 Things I love about Bath:

1. The Roman architecture

2. The laid back atmosphere

3. The street performers

4. The colourful flowers and green parks

5. The emerald green-turquoise water at the Roman Baths


Bath, EnglandWalking through the Roman Baths and seeing all of the Roman rubble and artifacts brought me back to the Roman period when  the Celtic people in Britain looked up to Sulis Minerva who was believed to be the goddess of life, nourishment, and protection. The cult statue of Sulis Minerva rests at the Temple in Bath.Bath, England

Among the other artifacts at bath, I noticed that the romans too like turquoise, because of the blue and green coloured stones they precisely chose for jewelry. Bath, England

For those who would like a romantic, quiet, and green setting in England, Bath is the perfect place for you. Bath is a small city nestled between green rolling hills where you can stroll through the streets with a coffee, have a picnic, or listen to street performers outside of the Roman Baths. Is this your English heaven? Bath, England

    • What a perfect combination! However, unfortunately you can’t actually go in the Baths because the water is not clean. 😦 I think there is a ‘spa’ in the city of Bath, but you can’t go in the actual Roman Baths in Bath. Bummer eh? That’s what I was looking forward to! I was disappointed when I found out I couldn’t soak my feet in the hot spring Baths in Bath. If only I grew up in Roman times…ahhhh!

  1. I’ve only ever visited Bath once, years ago when I was a child, and I don’t really remember the day much. I now live in South Wales, just over the border and only a short train journey away from Bath. I’m hoping to visit the city properly soon, especially as a friend told me there’s a pub there that sells gluten-free beer!

    • Yes you should go again. It’s always fun to visit a place a second time around, especially if you can’t remember the first visit. I hope my pictures brought back flashes of vivid memories. Oh, I wonder what gluten-free beer tastes like?! Are you 100% gluten free?

      • Yes, I found out 3 years ago that I’m allergic to gluten and I have especially bad reactions when it’s in alcohol. You can but gluten-free beer in the supermarkets here is Wales, but I haven’t found a bar that sells it yet 😦 I’d love to be able to sit in a pub and drink a beer again, so I’m definitely going to check out the train schedule and find that bar in Bath 🙂
