Today was an early start to the day for our day trip to Stonehenge and Bath, we had to leave home at 7.00am to be at our meeting place outside McDonalds at 8.30am, with careful planning the four of us managed to make it with extra time to find where exactly McDonalds was at Baker Street!!! I spotted the coach and that made it a lot easier.
Finally we were on the highway once we made two more stops to collect passengers for our trip!! When we left London it was sunny but still cool but as we got further away the weather did not improve, we could see the evidence of this on the windscreen it was raining this put a dampener to the trip as was this going to spoil our trip???
We got to Stonehenge about two hours into our trip, we walked around Stonehenge and were able to have a audio guided tour which took us about 45 minutes, was great to be here finally and was magnificent of what we saw in front on us, thought we would be abit closer to the actual stones but we were about 50 metres away. The weather did hold out for us even though it was still pretty cold and of course we were wearing our jandals!! So got the Mickey taken out of us by fellow members of our tour!!
We then headed onto Bath, after three closed roads that the Tour usually follows we managed to get there only half an hour behind schedule. We got a guided tour on the bus of some parts of Bath seeing parts like the Circus, Queen Square, Royal Victoria Park, Royal Crescent
Daylight robbery, Jane austin centre, The Avon River and Pulteney Bridge
We did an audio tour around The Roman Baths which just took us over an hour; the complex is a site of historical interest in this English city. The complex is a well-preserved Roman site for public bathing. The Roman Baths are below the modern street level. Main features are
After The Roman Baths, we went and had some lunch from a local bakery, was really hungry as had not eaten at all today just a red bull for breakfast!!
After this we went inside The Bath Abbey a parish church which was once the great church of a monastery was built in 1499 on the site of 7th Century Cathedral was fascinating inside.
We then headed towards the Pump Room to have cream tea and scones but were put off the price which would have been 10 pound each, which we were not going to pay so we went to explore for further options and found a small café off the side of the main road and they were delightful!!!
I think we will go back again because we really only got time to do a few things not have a long explore around Bath plus I want to go back for the thermal pools, look so dam fantastic.
