Bath

sunny 5 °C

Bath - 01.jpgBath - 09.jpgWe pulled into Bath quiet late and ended up driving around in circles to find our way to the hostel as we were given a map but neither of us realised that it was just of the main roads not of the street names in each of the towns. Once we finally found where we were staying and then found a car park we had dinner and settled in for the night. Got up bright and early to do some photography before going on our guided tour but as we walked out the door we walked smack into a cloud of fog, oh well as there were no photos at that point in time we settled for breaky instead. Once we had finished breakfast the fog had lefted enough for us to wander around and start taking some photos. We walked over one of three bridges in the world that have cute little shops lining either side, we then headed down to the river bank to see some fantastic veiws of the New Bath on top of the old, anyone coming to bath is strongly advised to head down and see it for yourself as it is a truely wonderful sight. We then walked down the river Avon for a bit and bumped into a lovely lady who told us a little about the history of Bath. We then went on to join one of the free guided historical walks, this is also recommended if you come to bath, as you wouldn't beileve some of the information and history you get to catch up on. We ended our day there looking throught the old Roman Baths and the Pump house, very interesting, definately worth doing but you really do need some time to listen to all the audio information. We were short of time so we just listened to the start of each section to get the jist of it all.

Stonehenge

sunny 5 °C

Stonehenge - 02.jpgStonehenge - 20.jpgAfter driving throught the country side from Bath we found Stonehenge. Wow it is absolutely fantastic to see in real life. Unfortunately due to our days becoming shorter, we got there 5 mins before they close the gates so we didn't get to do the audio tour but managed to take some beautiful photos from the road of it and also of a fantastic sunset. It is well worth seeing but definately include it in a trip somewhere else as there is not alot to see for miles around it.
