This is one of the oldest buildings in Bath serving a variety of sweet and savoury buns and afternoon tea. I had the light breakfast which is a pot of tea and half a bun served with cinnamon butter. The cinnamon butter is seriously amazing! They also have a small museum downstairs where you can purchase a bun to take home.

Bath Christmas Markets

December 18, 2016

One of my favourite things to do in December is to visit Christmas markets! Baths famous Christmas market is a wonderful place to go for a festive break. You can soak up the aroma of mulled wine, sizzling sausages and mince pies as you admire the beautiful Georgian architecture. There are plenty of stalls filled with handmade gifts around the Abbey and Roman baths.

Bath Abbey Tour

I decided to do the festive tower tour it costs £6 and you get a mulled wine or hot choc. You walk to the top of the abbey up a very steep narrow staircase but it’s worth it for the view at the top. Once you reach the top you can enjoy the beautiful view over the Christmas market whilst sipping on mulled wine. This tour runs throughout the year (without the mulled wine) and would also be nice to visit in Summer.
