Bath presented a completely different vibe from the ones that I have received when I was in York, Canterbury and other historic towns. First of all, architecturally, the majority of the buildings were of Georgian style, reminding me very much of the British period dramas I do so enjoy watching. The fact that all the buildings were of the same beige color made the place seem very orderly and stylish, and I quite liked that about Bath.

Here are some of the photos I took of the place.

I must say I was the only person in Bath excited over the cherry blossoms.

This is the cinnamon butter toasted Sally Lunn’s Bun. These buns are a must-try when you visit Bath. The cinnamon butter was to die for and if I wasn’t at the early stage of traveling around the UK, I probably would have bought the cinnamon butter to take home.

Bath is also known to be where Jane Austen lived, and is the setting in many of her books. There is even a Jane Austen Centre which was a very interesting (and insightful) place to visit. I also took the time alone to venture out and visit the buildings where Jane Austen lived.

The Royal Crescent. It is a pity I couldn’t capture the whole thing in a photo without using the panorama setting in my phone.

The Roman Baths was more extensive than I thought it would be, with the big indoor museum and a very detailed guide to the origins of the roman bath…

Bath is a beautiful place worth visiting. I dare say it may even be a must-see destination for Austenites! The architecture oozed the fashionable English gentry period. And a bit cliche of me, but I just wanted to sit in front of the Royal Crescent and read some romance novels.
