Easter Break to Somerset-Fashion & The Roman Baths

On our second day in Somerset, we woke up bright and early for breakfast in our hotel.

We started with toast and pastries, juices and smoothies and then it was time for the main event, pancakes!

With maple syrup and berries, it was delicious.

Feeling ready for the day, we set off for the city of Bath, which was a 25 minute drive from where we was staying.

Once we’d parked up, we walked to the Fashion Museum which I was most excited to visit. The Fashion Museum had two exhibitions on, A History of Fashion in 100 Objects and Lace in Fashion.

We started with A History of Fashion.

An 1840s silk wedding dress.

1920s flapper dresses.

A ‘fire’ fancy dress outfit from the 1920s.

A day dress that doubled up as wedding dress during the second world war.

A modern runway dress from the 2010s.

And then it was time to dress up!

Before admiring the Lace exhibition.

After a fantastic visit to the Fashion Museum, we walked around beautiful Bath.

Bath Abbey.

We stopped off at Chai Walla for lunch and enjoyed Indian style street food. An onion bhaji wrap, with salad and seasoned with different spices. Really delicious!

Then it was time to visit the attraction which Bath is most famous for, the Roman Baths.

The city of Bath was founded upon natural hot springs and the Romans constructed the baths around 70AD for socialising and bathing. The water has a constant temperature of 46 degrees.

After the Roman Baths, we explored the city and the shops before driving back to our hotel.

Instead of getting dinner, we snacked on bits we’d bought like this delicious Belgian chocolate fudge.

Had fruity cocktails in the hotel bar.

And admired the gorgeous sunset from our bedroom.

Before relaxing and catching an early night. Ready for day three of our Easter break.

  1. What a fun day and a great way to start it off and to end it! Your breakfast looked amazing! And oh my gosh the fashion museum! I love fashion exhibits (the Met is starting theirs in a couple weeks yay!) I was oohing and aching and didn’t know how it could get any better and then I saw your pictures of the lace! Oh my god! Absolutely stunning!
    The Roman Baths are on my travel bucket list and again your pictures are stunning!
    Those drinks and that chocolate! Seriously everything about this post is drool worthy! ❤

    • Aww thanks hun. Glad you enjoyed it😊 I love Fashion Museums and exhibitions. I’ve done quite a few exhibitions in London but there’s been none on for a while, so I really loved the one in Bath☺ All of the dresses were gorgeous. I’d love to go to the Met😊 Aaw it’s really interesting to walk around the Roman Baths. They’re so well preserved. There was so much good food😊 xx

  2. I loved looking at the history of fashion photos! And the dressing up must have been so fun. 🙂
    Bath looks so picturesque as well. I’ve only heard of Bath mentioned but never looked at photos. I can’t believe the Roman Baths still remain!

    • It was a really great Museum. I loved all the dresses and reading the stories behind them😊 Dressing up was fun. I couldn’t believe how heavy some of the dresses were though!
      It’s very picturesque☺ I know and they’ve been so well preserved. It’s one of the UK’s best Roman sites to visit☺ xx

  3. So cool! Love all the pics from the fashion museum.

    I want those playing card deck chairs.

    Would love to visit Bath one day (it’s near Stonehenge, isn’t it?). Roman ruins are always so interesting.

    • Aaw thank you. It was really fun looking at all the clothes😊 Me too. I wish we’d stopped off in that cafe. Stonehenge is around 50 minutes from Bath. It’s in the next county, so if you was staying in Bath you could do a day trip/tour there easily☺ xx

  4. The museum with the history of Fashion!!! Stunning my favorite was definitely the beautiful laced gowns with the glam beading. The Roman Bath’s looks like such a beautiful historical place. I would love to one day see it in person. I also need those card chairs at that cafe for my own keepings, I love that!
