As you probably know well by now if you are a beloved follower of my blog/ Youtube that I live in South Wales (UK).
So I very rarely go visiting past the seven bridge, but I went to bath on a coach trip for a day to go see the shops. Of course we took our trusty camera with us for sight seeing, photography and vlogging (I didn’t get very far with vlogging as I became very shy!).
The coach was only suppose to take two hours at the most, four hours later we ended up forcefully squeezing into a space as turns out there was also a bath university tour day going on. Typical!
Bath is quite picturesque, not as I expected after listening to many peoples high views on Bath I thought it could do with a good lick of paint if i’m honest.
Yes I know before you harp on that, that is the beauty of bath but some of the places looked no better than what we would scowl upon back at home and ignore that street. (what a snob do I sound like hey!)
There was plant of high street shops and big top end shops that I have never seen with my own eyes before. As Cardiff unfortunately does not accommodate these but the shops were all very very small!. There was a Primark (of course I had to browse and buy in there, did you expect any different?) it was significantly smaller than the Primark I am use to but there was some new items in there that I had not seen in the bigger one so whoop for them!.
The cafe’s were cute and quaint and I absolutely fell in love with a Little Alice in wonderland themed cafe. It really was no bigger than the office I am sat in right now. As it compromised of one large 6 seat rectangle table and one round 2 seat with a counter and small kitchen. I was gutted I couldn’t even fit a mouse in there let alone me to have a peak in. There was two cute deck of cards and alice themed metal tables and chairs but it was far too cold to just sit on and have a cuppa. Never mind the risk of the table being knocked over by a passer by.
I loved the quaint canal that was probably by far my favourite sight seeing spot and I don’t know it just looked so calm compared to right next door was a bustling busy shopping area.
I could only take photos from inside the bus as we were suppose to be on our way home yet there we were stuck in yet another traffic jam. Every part of me wanted to get out and find a little dog to walk along the canal with.
Curtis didn’t particularly enjoy the shopping or even the sights, so I doubt we would both be visiting again together anytime soon.
I did find a small little park area with a huge tree in the middle and benches where we relaxed too for a few minutes in the shade. Curtis also took a few Outfit shots for me at the rustic fence.
We also found the christmas shop “25th December”. It looked so pretty and christmassy, it also had a cart and horse outside which naturally, I took a picture of and took to show my mum as she loves those kind of things and was hoping one day to put our horse Onyx back to carting. But she’s getting on a bit now for that so we may have to break Jack in and teach him but thats another story. Look how lovely the cart looks I can imagine riding along in that, in a big fluffy coat red velvet dress and boots feeling all christmassy with pretty lights everywhere and a bit of chill in the air.
Oh yeah and I can’t forget to mention the very pretty park green, My mum did tell me there was a park where, when she went the bushes were shaped in Winnie the pooh theme. This time they were Flowers, butterflies and a very cute bee.
The canal streamed out bigger to the left of the park and on the other side of the canal was a football match that was jam packed.
Have you ever been to bath? How did you find? Do you have a blog post about Bath that you could share?
