The last weekend was a long one cause of Easter and we’ve typically not done much on the Easter Monday bank holiday. However, Seema and Rodney, who were in London and bunking with us, had already booked tickets to visit Bath and Stonehenge. So, Ashwina and I also tagged along.
We arrived at Victoria before 8am well ahead of our scheduled departure. It allowed us to get some decent seats in the middle of the bus. We set out towards Bath first which is about 2.5 hours away from London. We luckily didn’t encounter much traffic given the early start.
We reached Bath around 11am on a relatively bright and shiny day. Our ticket did not include the entry into the Roman Baths as we weren’t convinced it was worth the cost.
However, we did visit Bath Abbey. The foundation of the abbey dates back to the 7th century. We didn’t spend a lot of time there as it is relatively small and parts of it under restoration.
After this, we wandered around Bath, checking out the trail around the river Avon and the old architecture of the city. We also got a decent lunch there and some tea and bath buns.
After Bath, we headed over to Stonehenge. Stonehenge is a massive place with not just the main group of standing stones but adjacent areas with smaller stones and “mounds”. We didn’t have the time to explore all of this and so were limited to walking full circle around the main set of stones. I must say that I was expecting something slightly larger.
After spending little over an hour in Stonehenge, we got back on the bus and headed towards London amidst a lot of busy traffic.
