Matt & I spent last weekend relaxing in the soothing warm waters of the Thermae Spa in Bath. It was wonderful, I heartily recommend it. Without going into details, I’ve been having a bit of a rubbish time recently and there’s nothing like a bit of rest and relaxation to restore the soul and the Thermae Spa is the perfect place to do just that! There are two pools which are heated by the mineral-rich hot springs of Bath, the only place they occur in the UK. One of the pools is outdoors up on the roof with a fantastic view of the beautiful city and its surrounding hills. Bliss indeed! Sadly, I couldn't take any pictures from this session as cameras are not allowed, but you can check out the website and ooh and aah over that, if you're so inclined.
However, as you can see I did manage to take pictures elsewhere on my trip! No visit to this city is complete without a wander round the Roman Baths, so we did that too. I couldn’t resist dipping my fingers into the waters (also not allowed – naughty girl) and can confirm that they are indeed still kept pleasantly warm, despite no longer being used for bathing. I then sampled the drinking water, also warm, which tasted odd. Not gonna lie.
Even though it's not quite yet Halloween, I took the opportunity to wear my new favourite bat print jumper as I wandered around sight-seeing. Let’s face it, a bat is just a bath with no ‘h’. Right...?
Have you ever been to Bath and its spa? Where else is good to visit for a bit of a rest in the UK?
