Bath – inarguably one of the most romantic cities I’ve visited, made even more so by the wedding we were there to attend.
Utterly enchanting, and surprisingly hipster, this picturesque town 1.5 hours from London is my new place du jour. Gothic architecture sprinkled with tea rooms and hidden passages, it’s easy to envision the 1800s high society life that burgeoned here, and before that, a countryside retreat for the Romans.
Having no shortage of literary masterminds, England is a physical bookstore, with Bath being an appropriate homage to Jane Austen. After ambling down those cobblestone streets, it’s no wonder her mind and her pen made even the most cynic amongst us slightly more zealous with the notions of love.
Outside of the wedding, we had languid, sunny days of coffee, pain au chocolat and sightseeing. Our B&B was the ultimate in English charm, with rose-covered walls and warm homemade breakfast. The pubs, great selection of beers, and variety of cuisines take Bath from historic tourist town to liveable and eclectic. For a city that was first established as a spa, the feelings of relaxation and wellness are abundant throughout.
The four days flew by and I find myself wishing I was back there, croissant in hand, transported to a time where dreamers dreamed, writers wrote, and Romans bathed.
