Photo Essay: Bath – A Georgian Delight

Bath is significant for two reasons: 1) it created my love for the hop on hop off buses and 2) reaffirmed my love and appreciation for Georgian architecture.

When my sister and I visited the city in 2010 both of us fell in love with it instantly. The architecture was something that I really fell for. I love the symmetry and classic look of Georgian architecture and Bath had a lot of buildings from this era. Bath was really a delightful city to wander around – sounds cheesy and cliché but it really was picture perfect.

My sister and I went to a lot of places in the 8 days we were in based in Exeter and I think both of us would be hard pressed to say which place was our favourite as they were all amazing in their own right. In saying that, I think Bath stands out for both of us because it is just so darn pretty.

The reason I wanted to visit Bath all started when I saw a photo of the Royal Crescent years ago. I didn’t expect that the whole city would capture my heart the way it did. The day we visited it was a cool but sunny mid November day and it was the perfect backdrop for some simply stunning architecture.

Below are some of my photos from Bath – you can find the rest over at my Flickr page
