Day 1 - Bath


Once you have arrived in Bath and checked into the Royal Crescent Hotel, head outside and explore the beautiful 18th century crescent on which you're staying. Not only is the crescent itself beautiful, but it offers stunning views of the rest of the city too. After taking lots of pictures head to Number One Royal Crescent to find out how the 30 houses would have been furnished in Georgian times. Next explore Royal Victoria Park, where there's something for everyone to do. The more active can enjoy a game of tennis or crazy golf, explorers will love the Botanical Garden and Great Dell, and children will not believe their eyes when you find the massive park that was built with legacy money, which thankfully features its own ice cream van in summer months. Should you fancy something stronger, cross the road to visit The Hop Pole, a Bath Ales pub where you can sample Gem, Organic Lager and other local tipples. On your way back to your hotel take a slight detour onto the Circus, a round "street" which has not only featured in countless films, but is even home to a movie star. Enjoy dinner at the fabulous Royal Crescent Restaurant, and get an early night... you've got some serious relaxing to do tomorrow!

Day 3 - Bath


Check out of The Royal Crescent Hotel but leave your luggage at the hotel, as you are now off to discover Jane Austen's Bath. Start off at The Jane Austen Centre on Gay Street, and then discover her inspiration for yourself on a walking tour that shows you all the spots of the city that inspired her. You will have worked up an appetite on the walking tour of Bath, so reward yourself with a trip to Sally Lunn's Museum and Cafe, the oldest house in Bath and the famous home of Sally Lunn's buns. Spend the rest of the day admiring Pulteney Bridge from the elegant Parade gardens then go meet one of Bath's newest residents, Jamie Oliver. Ok so he may not actually be waiting tables at Jamie's Italian in Milsom Place, but he is the brain behind the informal yet delicious menu, that won't break the bank. Don't skip the bread basket, with its wide range of delicious doughs it's the highlight of the meal. Finish your stay in Bath with a Abbey Ale, courtesy of the unusually shaped Star pub, which even sells snuff.
