Come with me to Bath . . .

An early morning alarm call on a Saturday morning . . . what's that all about!

Today was the day that I travelled up to the historical town of Bath, for those of you in Blogland that have never been it really should be on your list of places to visit ~ and stop over.

Bath is nourished by natural hot springs and offers a truly unique experience that will leave you wanting to plan your next visit before the first has ended . . . stunning architecture, fantastic shopping (I loved the quirky-ness, the little curious shops tucked away in side streets and arcades) and of course not forgetting the iconic attractions.

The perfect starting point of our day was a visit to the Jane Austen exhibition which has been created with the guidance of local members of the Jane Austen Society which I definately recommend as it set the mood for the day, a lovely period atmosphere, contemporary exhibits and books galore!

There are tea rooms a plenty to re-charge throughout the day ~ before setting off to explore the rest of the attractions including the Roman Baths and the fabulously grand Abbey!

And to top it all off if you're in the mood for a little festive shopping you'll not want to miss out on this fabulous little shop . . .
