I live in a little place called Lyneham in Wiltshire. Not much goes on there but not far down the road lies the wonderful city of Bath. I tend to get the train over whenever I'm a little bored.

A few months ago, not long after my return from a hectic two weeks in Florida, I felt the need for a bit of pampering. Those coasters get stressful after a while. Bath is partly famous for it's Roman Baths and it's newly opened Thermae Bath Spa (review to follow). So I booked myself in for a few hours but because it's such a busy place I had to wait til now to go! My session didn't start til 1.30 so I went in a bit early so I could have walk round and soak up the history on offer. Not to mention all the lovely little shops.

I had a few things I needed to do while I was there but I got distracted by Baby Gap. My sister's due to give birth in mid June and Baby Gap has got some really cool stuff so I went a bit mad with little outfits for my nephew to be. Spent a while and too much money in there. But it was fun and I know it'll all get worn.

I've been to Bath loads of times before but I had never seen the Royal Crescent. Only ever on TV and on postcards. So, I found a map and started walking. The thing about Bath is, it's built on a hill and the Royal Crescent is, yes, you guessed it, right on the top. It was well worth the walk though. A breathtaking old Georgian building that seems to go on forever. I was a annoyed that I couldn't get it all in one shot though. I took a few photos and headed on back down the hill for my Spa Session.

Bath Sights & Attractions review
Amazing steam rooms.
Thermae Bath Spa opened in 2006. 4 years late and £32 million over budget. No surprise there then. I'd been past it on a few occasions and have wante… read entire review
