Experiences in the UK Part Four: Stonehenge and Bath edition

Hi guys!

On Saturday (09/02/2013) I visited Stonehenge and Bath. At 6.45 am I left my dorms to walk to St Margaret’s coach station where we boarded our bus to take us away.

By 7.30 we were off, and after a long bus journey we arrived at Stonehenge around 10.30. Stonehenge was pretty amazing, although the weather was awful. It was about -2 with 100% humidity so it was cold and wet and as you may be able to see, I’d rugged up to keep warm.

After seeing Stonehenge and visiting the gift shop we were back on the bus around 12pm and off to the historic city of Bath. Before even entering the city, there were beautiful views from the hills that we were driving down to get into the city.

Once in Bath we had around 4 hours to explore the city. Bath is famous for the magnificent Bath Abbey, the Jane Austen museum (Bath is her home town), and the Roman Baths. I visited the Bath Abbey.

I also visited the Bath Cider Festival which was an interesting experience and a chance to mix with the locals. After having a few ‘scrumps’ we moved on from the festival to look around the city a little more. We looked in some local pubs to find somewhere to eat and ended up stumbling upon a cute cafe where I ate a Venison stew, just for something different.

At 5.30 we got on the bus and made the journey back to Leicester after a long day. It was a magnificent and one that I won’t soon forget.

Thanks for reading!
