The West Country of England, and in particular, the Wiltshire Somerset border contains some of the finest scenery in the UK. The Spa, Roman Baths and the architecture of Bath is famous and quite rightly so. But the real adventure starts with the discovery of the surrounding countryside. There are fantastic walks to be had, from the Bath Skyline walk, the sedate and genteel Kennet and Avon canal to the wonderful views 'Climbing up on Salisbury Hill' and Prospect Style by the racecourse; GGs that is, but the village of Castle Combe with its motor racing circuit is still only half an hour away. Easy day trips by car are: Bradford-on-Avon, Regency Cheltenham, Wells, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole caves, the 29 canal locks at Caen Hill, Devizes; Tintern Abbey and the Wye Valley, Avebury's standing stones, Stonehenge, the white horse at Westbury, Longleat House and Gardens to name but a few. All that and were one main line train stop away from Bristol. In fact, there is just so much to do and see you're really going to struggle to fit it all in.
Bath is one of the must see tourist destinations for anybody visiting the UK. It is home to a top university so the ambiance remains young and vibrant. For city centre pubs try The Star, The Raven, The Old Green Tree, The Crystal Palace and for restaurants try these: The Kilted Chef, Menu Gordon Jones, The Royal Crescent, Bath Spa or Priory Hotels, The Peking, The Eastern Eye or the Thai Balcony. For the Village pub feel try the Wheatsheaf at Combe Hay, the Hope and Anchor at Midford or the Fox and Badger at Wellow. They all meet the spec!
And for things to do: The Theatre Royal, The Thermae Bath Spa, The Roman Baths, The Jayne Austin centre, The Costume Museum, No.1 The Crescent, Victoria Park and the botanical gardens, hire a canal boat, cycle along the canal to Bradford on Avon and back, go to a Rugby Match, visit the abbey (or Wells Cathedral). Now, there's several weekends worth and I have hardly started. Come, and enjoy!
