The next day we got up early for our hotel breakfast and went back into Bath. I took my bag I'd bought the day before out for its first outing. It's a Kate Sheridan mini satchel (not on the Urban Outfitters website but on her website here). And yet another outing for my gorgeous Clarks boots from the Idealo Winter Boots challenge, which seem to go with everything!

Tom and I were both eager to see the Roman Baths, which are obviously one of the most popular tourist spots in Bath. The baths (a World Heritage Site) were built during the Roman occupation of Britain and are steeped in history, and have been modified and redeveloped on several occasions. We went full tourist and nosed around with our audioguides, spending a couple of hours exploring the baths and seeing parts of the original site, which is mindblowing considering it was built over the years following 60-70 AD. It was so fun walking around and imagining all of the things that went on there when it was in use in Roman times. Here are some photos of The Great Bath.
After we'd finished in the Baths we spent more time taking in Bath itself before deciding to head for a spot of lunch. We tried to go to The Cosy Club (on Steph's recommendation) but they had an hour wait for tables so instead we walked to Las Iguanas and had a very yummy lunch before heading back to the car.
In the spirit of further rest and relaxation we donned our fluffy robes and slippers and headed down to the spa for swimming, steam rooms and a bubbly jacuzzi. There was even an 'experience shower' with different settings including 'Caribbean Rainstorm' complete with strobe lightning effects and thunder sound effects (which Tom enjoyed until he was pelted with 'freezing rain'). We'd made a stop at Marks and Spencer's on the way to the hotel to stock up on fizz so we had some champagne cocktails before heading down for dinner. Dinner outfit;

We were certainly sad to wave goodbye to the hotel the following day, I'd definitely return for a longer stay in the future.
