London is undoubtedly one of the most famous cities in the world. As the economic centre of the UK, people are always on a rush going about their busy lives. Sometimes, the stress of London living becomes too much, making you wish for a quick break to somewhere new.
Luckily, there are many lovely places for you to rest and relax. The City of Bath is ideal for short breaks because it is just 90 minutes away from the Paddington station, and a short drive down the M5.
It is a popular tourist destination, even as a city it gives you respite from the hustle and bustle of London.
Bath is an ideal city for people who want to experience total relaxation. The city offers lovely B&Bs and boutique hotels, where you can enjoy little luxuries at an affordable price. Some people are so enamoured with the city that they choose to stay, moving to a cottage with a garden and foregoing their London life.
Bath is renowned for its Georgian architecture dating back to the 18th century. Many of the structures are protected historical buildings. You can enjoy a long walk through the cobbles streets, enjoy traditional afternoon tea, or visit one of Bath’s thermal spas.
In fact, Bath takes its name from the natural hot springs in the area. The water travels from Mendip Hills and bubbles out through the limestone aquifers under the city, forming natural hot springs. The most famous hot spring in the city is the Thermae Bath Spa, where you can enjoy the hot, mineral-rich waters as they bubble out of the ground.
Of course, no stay in Bath is complete without a taste of the local cuisine. Bath is full of cosy pubs and excellent restaurants. You can enjoy afternoon tea with scones and clotted cream, or a traditional roast in one of the cosy pubs.
Relaxation is just a couple of hours away. Take a break from London life and enjoy the best of Bath.
