Due to the hours I was not able to go into Bath Abbey, but one cannot miss this Gothic style Abbey in Bath.

The primary attraction of "Bath"...well at least it was to me. I had read so much about Aqua Sulis, the old province of Roman Empire that I had expected it to be just like it was in old Rome.
Of course, that aspect of my expectation has disappointed me a bit, but still, it was not something to be missed. The myth, intrigue...all still exist there.
Roman BathBath is a small, but extremely pretty city. I fell in love with the streets and the little houses on sight.

Bath was small enough city that one only needs a palm size map and few hours to walk around the whole city. I suppose many more hours could be spent just roaming around the little streets forever, but we had finite time.
It was strange to see modern designer clothes and coffee shops nestled inside the old architecture.

Or maybe simply a nostalgic fool...
I have never thought to encounter a museum that is the kitchen of someone's small house, but apparently this Sally Lunn is famous for her Buns.
Even I had to taste one!
