, , Comment closed

No how much you love DIY, everyone needs a break at some point, some quality time to relax and have fun with your loved ones. Sometimes a weekend break is essential for your sanity, and provides a chance to spend some quality time with your family or friends, so why not try a mini-break in the popular, well-loved city destination of Bath?

Why Bath?

Why not? What’s not to love about this beautiful city full of history and culture? Obviously one of the main attractions in Bath is, well, the Roman Bathhouses, but this city is also famed for its gorgeous architecture, and, not only has Unesco named it as a World Heritage Site, it also has more listed buildings than anywhere else in the country.

If you’re a fan of fine literature and love a bit of Jane Austen, the Jane Austen Centre is definitely a must-see for you. It’s great for fans of literary classics such as Pride and Prejudiceand Sense and Sensibility.

The test of a great city is whether it has a hop-on hop-off tours bus, and Bath’s open-bus tour certainly won’t disappoint. It’s cheap and relaxing, and by far the easiest and most stress-free way of seeing all the sights and attractions this fabulous city has to offer.

Where are the Best Restaurants in Bath?

Bath has a whole plethora of wonderful restaurants to suit every palette and preference. The vast number of options available in and around the city means you’ll be spoilt for choice, but it’s always wise to investigate your options and book in advance online, by looking at restaurants in Bath to see what the city has to offer.

If you’re a fan of traditional pub grub and like food with names you can pronounce, one of the best restaurants in Bath is The Hare and Hounds. This restaurant takes everyone’s favourite pub dishes and puts their own fancy spin on them.

If you fancy something a bit more exotic try Las Iguanas. This fun, lively restaurant serves delicious Latin American cuisine, and you can try a unique and fabulous blend of native Spanish, Indian, Portuguese and African dishes. With so many options you’re bound to find something that suits everybody’s tastes. Again, because this restaurant often receives rave reviews, you’d be wise to book in advance.
