England on a Friday

Well…I can’t believe it’s been almost three weeks since I was in London, and as usual, I’m super behind on posting…which is terrible since my memory isn’t as fresh since it has now been bogged down by “real life” and I’m in Sweden right now…so of course I want to post about my time here.

Fortunately, I did a quick outline of what I did this day. This was the only day where I did a day tour. I used the service, Day Tours and I loved it! The driver and tour guide were great. They gave really interesting historical facts and there was a ton of free time to go off on your own, which is big for me.

Stonehenge

Such an amazing structure…and it was so fun to learn about the history of the builders. It didn’t retain its shape (no surprise, considering the age), but what amazes me the most is that many of the stones came from all over and not from the area of the circle.

Bath

The next stop was Bath…and the architecture there is stunning! The main downtown area of Bath is also a quick walkaround, easily accomplished in 15-20 minutes. Here are the highlights of my tour around. I stopped at Westgate Pub. The tour guide advised that no matter where we go we need to try the cider in Bath as the apples are grown locally.

OMG Best cider I’ve ever had in my life…

And…yeah…I’ll use the word again…best Fish and chips I’ve ever had in my life

After a very satisfying lunch I walked off and hit the following places:

The Royal Crescent.

This is a row of 30 terraced houses built between 1767-1774 and is considered one of the greatest examples of Georgian architecutre in UK. It is absolutely stunning.

The Circus.

It’s hard to see how amazing it is so I found an aerial picture online so you can see it. It makes me want to live here.

Victoria Park

I walked through Victoria park, but I didn’t take any pictures.

Pultney Bridge.

This bridge has a bunch of cute stores on it and if you walk to the end you end up in Laura Place

Another great area of houses…did I mention I want to live in Bath?

Bath Abbey.

I’m not religious…but I love looking at old cathedrals and abbeys.
