Bath Abbey

Originally uploaded by rutty.

I love holidays, especially city trips. You don’t have to go far to have fun, or even spend too long in your destination, but I think it’s very important to have regular breaks away.

This last weekend we spent one night away in Bath. It’s not even very far to Bath, but we managed to get a £26 special at a Travelodge and did some of the tourist thing around this rather beautiful city.

If you’ve never been you really have to visit. The forefathers and current local government have been very clever. They’ve managed to retain much of the charm of the local buildings and traditions even while progress has marched on. Most buildings are still built in the local Bathstone (a type of Limestone that’s very light in colour) and it just makes the whole city look very elegant and stylish.

There’s much to see but you must visit the Abbey (pictured here in an experimental long exposure shot) and the Roman Baths. There are plenty of other places to see too and I took hundreds of photos while I was there. I’m yet to upload many others but I’ll do that over the next couple of days.

It’s a must-visit place though. Get going!
