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.
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.
