For mine and my boyfriend's 3 year anniversary we decided to celebrate by taking a trip to the beautiful city of Bath. Neither of us had been before, so we were both excited to explore a new town and spend some time together.
We travelled by train (an hour and a half from Paddington) and stayed for 2 nights in the local Premier Inn. We found that everywhere was within walking distance, which was perfect as neither of us have a car.

After schlepping up a pretty steep hill, we eventually arrived at The Circus which was incredibly picturesque...
A short, flat (thank god) walk away is The Royal Crescent, which is similar to the houses of The Circus but in a crescent shape (as the name might suggest) not a circle.
And in typical British fashion, we got caught in a downpour so had to run down a hill (me slipping and sliding in my stupid shoes) to take shelter underneath some trees. Luckily it was just a shower so we could get on with our day.
The most famous (and crowded) place we visited during our stay was the Roman Baths. Although it was on the pricey side, it's well worth a look. The terrace is gorgeous and of course we perched on the edge of the main bath to feel the heated waters. Inside are well preserved smaller baths and rooms (too dark to photograph) that are lovely as well. The visit ended with a cup of spa water - not delicious but all part of the experience!
The final highlight of the trip was a visit to Sally Lunn's Eating House, the oldest house in Bath and home of the Sally Lunn bun. I chose the "amazing" lemon curd topping, while my boyfriend went for the cinnamon butter option. We washed them down with some delicious raspberry lemonade.
To see what I wore whilst traipsing around the city, I've got an outfit post coming soon, so look out for that!
Thank you so much if you reached the end of this post and leave me a suggestion below for where I should take a mini break next!
