Bath the Xmas market 2016

We had a lovely time going around the Christmas market and stayed in a pub hotel, this was amazing. We had Along weekend and decided to go over to London to see our youngest son. We found a lovely Christmas drink 🍹 cinnamon Jack Daniels, it was sooooo delicious.



Bath Xmas market is a truly fantastic festive shopping experience. The centre of Bath is transformed into a magical Christmas shopper’s paradise, as over 170 chalets packed full of gorgeous Christmas gifts line the streets surrounding the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. It will really stimulate all of your senses, smell all the delicious foods cooking, see all the beautiful crafts and items to buy, visit the old fashioned shops, taste the mulled wines and mince pies…..mmmmmm…listen to the carol singers and enjoy purchasing your xmas presents.





The city of Bath

The city of Bath is famous for its natural hot springs, something I have yet to try. It was founded in the 1st century  AD by the Romans.  It is also famous for the wool industry in the middle ages. George I,II and III developed it in to an elegant spa city which is famous for its literature and art.



 

The Romans took advantage of the area’s natural hot springs by building the majestic Roman Baths,  which is now a heritage site. We walked around the elegant Georgian streets in the afternoon and evening, we walked through the royal Victoria park, there were some amazining museums but unfortunately we didn’t have much time on this trip.

given time I would have loved to visit Bath Abbey and the Theatre Royal. Its on my list to visit the Jane Austen Centre and the museums. No 1 Royal Crescent, Holburne Museum or the Fashion Museum.

There are many Roman designs to see especially the Temple of Sulis Minerva and the baths complex. It is now a beautiful Georgian city with architecture, landscape and beautiful parks to provide a relaxing and harmonious visit.
