Now a world heritage site, the Baths were constructed by the Romans around Hot Springs in this area. There also stands a temple to the Goddess Minerva. The Audio Guides provided plenty of information about the history.
Just outside the Roman Bath is the Famous Abbey. We did not go inside.
Bath is an architectural marvel. So we prayed for bright sunshine and walked around this beautiful city . Bath wears the golden hues of her buildings almost all of which are made of creamy Bath Stone . Since Bath is right on the River Avon, as an artist I would have loved to do a Venice and see the reflections of these buildings , unfortunately the River is not as central . So its entirely upto my imagination and I've given myself the creative license to paint what my minds eye wants to see :).
An explosion of culture sees itself in the abundance of theaters, museums, architecture , two colleges. The space around the Abbey was filled with artistic performances, dance and music.
We lunched on a little place above the Pulteney Bridge, and my fascination for boats and seascapes kept me standing on the bridge, watching the seagulls land .. The bridge is lined with shops and is supposed to be one of the very few bridges in the world that is so..
We enjoyed our day out .. Hope for bluer skies next time around :) As evening descended we drove out and back to London.
