I met Heath and Laura for breakfast before they headed on their day trip to Stonehenge and Bath, then I went to Paddington Station to organise my Oyster Card (highly recommended for anyone who’s in London for more than a couple of days) and waited for Bianca for our trip to Bath.
I slept for a while on the 1.5 hour train trip there, and woke up to the rain on the window. But a little rain was not going to stop us! When we got off at Bath we purchased a ticket for a bus tour then boarded the bus heading up into the hills around Bath. These hills contained many huge properties, some of which belonged to the town’s founding fathers, and plenty of excellent views back across the town and valley.
Hungry, we grabbed a sausage roll and hopped on our inner-city tour which showed us around the town and many beautiful Bath stone buildings. Especially beautiful were the The Circus and Royal Crescent, viewed from Royal Victoria Park. The tour then took us over Bath’s own Ponte Vecchio before dropping us outside the Roman Baths. As Bianca had seen them before I headed in on my own to browse. As with all things Roman the baths were incredibly engineered and it was amazing to see how much of the complex was still intact.
Bianca kindly bought me an umbrella which came in very handy as we set off by foot to explore Royal Crescent, where they were filming an unknown movie (maybe we’ll appear as unintended extras), then we went to explore some of the shops.
Feeling as though we’d seen most of the sights, and given how wet and cold we were getting, we headed back to the station for our trip back to London. There I did some washing before meeting up with Heath and Laura for dinner at Pizza Hut before going back to their room for a room party. This ended fairly late and I headed back to the hostel.
