Hey guys, I hope all is well. I went to Bath last month so this post will be about the beautiful town and things to do whilst there! If you haven’t been to Bath already, please plan a visit!
Bath itinerary- 2 days 1 night.
Stay– Dreamstays, Kingsmead Street– excellent location, right in the city centre with bars and restaurants around. You also have Sainsbury’s and Tesco right on your door step. About 10 mins walk from the coach station. The apartment was spotless and perfect for 3 people sharing. The only issue we had was the hot water running out and taking a while to heat up (that’s been happening to me a lot lately) and there are no full-length mirrors.
Best for food/drinks– Gong Fu Noodle Bar, Sotto Sotto, Giggling Squid, Vino Vino Bar, Real Italian Ice-cream parlour
We arrived quite early on the Saturday and after dropping our bags at the apparent, we did the ‘Walk to the View walk’ which took us about 2 hours. P.S- don’t bother printing the map from the Visit Bath website, you can simply google Bath Skyline and follow the directions. I would definitely recommend this walk (there is also a longer 3-4hr walk available), the views are beautiful and it takes you through the city centre, points of interest and a garden.
Afterwards, we grabbed a quick lunch at Gong Fu Thai Noodle Bar which was right opposite our apartment. The food was tasty and a good portion. It’s a small take away place. P.S- most of the restaurants closed at 2pm for lunch to reopen at 5/6, this place was one of the few that was open.
After lunch we were exhausted and chilled indoors till we left for dinner in the evening. We went to Vino Vino for drinks before dinner and I had the best Strawberry lychee martini I have ever had. The service was a bit slow but once we ordered the drinks were made quickly. I would recommend. Across the road was Giggling Squid and we had some amazing Thai food! I have been to Giggling Squid before in Bristol and loved it so I wasn’t surprised but the girls had never been so they were very impressed! The service was top notch, Deborah our waiter took care of us and made sure we had everything we needed.
After dropping our bags at the sister hotel (also located in the city centre) we went to Sotto Sotto for lunch. We heard it was one of the best restaurants in Bath and we wanted to have dinner there on Saturday but it was fully booked. Sotto Sotto is a very small Italian basement restaurant, we thought it could probably sit 40 people all together but isn’t doesn’t feel crowded. Booking is essential (people were turned away) and we took the first seating at 12.15 for their lunch service (it was fully booked). I understand why it’s so popular, the food is amazing, service was attentive and it’s not overpriced. It takes a minute to get through to them because the line is always busy but definitely recommended!
After lunch, we chilled in Paradise Gardens (£2 entry) which is a beautiful park right in the centre. Lucky for us there was a procession coming through and a performance so we got to enjoy that before it was time to leave.
Bath was so pretty and the town is small so we could easily walk everywhere. We loved our apartment and how central it was to everything! A weekend is perfect and gives enough time to have a feel for the city, definitely a place to check out
