TRAVEL | Summer in Bath, UK


Showing you around two of my favourite spots in Bath.

Although it is not really noticeable on my blog, I currently live in Bath, England - aka one of the cutest cities in the UK. I love it there, and every time that I walk around the centre I count my blessings for living in such a beautiful little place. I wanted to dedicate a blog post to my favourite areas of Bath that I have been exploring this spring - the city has turned into a wonderful blooming garden, which I could not wait to share with you all! So if you're around Bath in the upcoming weeks or summer months, here are the two top places to go to enjoy a relaxing sunny afternoon...

Sydney Gardens, the hidden gem
The Sydney Gardens are often overshadowed by the Royal Crescent, but they are my favourite place to go for a lie in in the sun. On Pulteney Bridge, turn right and walk all the way through possibly the longest street in Bath. On Laura Place, admire the symmetry that's in front of you... And make your way through the beautiful Georgian street until you reach the beautiful Palladian building of the Holborne Museum. The houses of Great Pulteney streets lead the way to the museum, and you will find yourself looking through the windows to satisfy the curiosity of seeing what the interiors are like – or is it only me?


Although I have been to the Horborne Museum some time ago, I do not have the clearest memory of what I saw, so I will leave it aside and move on straight to the Sydney Gardens, behind the museum. The gardens were designed for pleasant walks and on your way, you will spot a few beautiful gems, from the antique temple facade to the bridges overlooking the canal.


In the spring, the trees bloom in white and pink fluffy blossoms, and the ground gets covered in a pastel blanket of flower petals. The park is rarely crowded, and you will always find a good spot in the sun for a bit of reading or a joyful picnic with friends. The perfect area if you want some piece and quiet. I even spotted some lilac there - my favourite!


Around the Royal Crescent and the Georgian Garden
Although the Royal Crescent is always crowded when the nice weather and longer days come, it is always worth having a look around. In that area are some of the prettiest back streets. After a visit at the Fashion Museum, wander around and you will find the perfect photo opportunities.


I took these photos at the beginning of wisteria season, and finding these blooms at the Royal Crescent almost made my day. There was a wedding on the Crescent, for a lucky (and probably rich) couple who definitely picked the right place to celebrate such a special day. 
You could easily spend hours at the Crescent, watching the world go by and petting the numerous dogs who are taken out for walk there, but follow me on the little paths behind the Crescent to find the tiny, curious and peaceful Georgian Garden. Walk along the side-paths to see those typical Bath buildings, which are as pretty from the back as they are from the front...


The Georgian Garden is located behind one of these impressive houses, and you have to go through the garden door and climb a few stairs to arrive in the cute haven which will take you back in time. It is the perfect place for a little break away from the bustle of the city. Sit on the pretty garden bench and let the world go by... 


My list of places around Bath could go on and on - it is such a lovely city, full of spirit, History and life, and there is always something going on. I keep discovering new places and will keep sharing my favourites, which I plan on doing more often on the blog!
I also post a lot of photos of Bath on Instagram, so make sure to follow me over there!

  2. Lilacs are my favorite too, and I love the thought of getting lost in one of the gardens there. Before the kids I used to be outside to read quite often, but now whenever I visit a park it is to play catch or chase them around. Fun, but not as relaxing.
