CHRISTMAS IN BATH


After booking a long weekend off of work, I jumped on a train and took a spontaneous trip to the beautiful city of Bath.

I got a train from my local station to Bath Spa, which cost me a pretty cheap £8.40. 


I followed the crowd and ended up in a beautiful square full off quaint shops full to the brim with quirky gifts.
Around the corner, was the Christmas market in all of its glory; smelling of spicy cinnamon, roasted chestnuts and sizzling sausages.


Glittering decorations covered buildings, trees and shelves.


Whilst snow covered trees, plants and succulents adorned a florists doorstep.


Pretty flowers burst out of doorways.


Decorations erupted out of December 25th's extravagant window display.


The Christmas tree in the town centre was simple with lights only, but its size made up for the lack of ornaments!


Interestingly flavoured cheeses creeped around the corner - of course I queued up for a sample or ten!


Stunningly arranged flower boxes littered the street, along with the litter itself...


And red telephone boxes piled high with Nutcrackers.



A bird flies high over a beautifully dark river.



And shops looking particularly festive with twinkling lights.



Bath Abbey stood high and proud in the clouds.


Whilst cobble stoned streets were filled with people on a mission.



Reaching the end of the shops, I turned a corner and it looked like I was in London!


But Bath's gorgeously photogenic streets made me realise that I wasn't in London at all.


And with that, my journey was at an end, with a skyline view of Bath's rolling hills and cloudy skies.



Bath, you were good to me and I will be back to explore soon.
