A few weeks ago, Mrs and Miss B&B decided to take a small city break – namely, to our favourite little city, Bath!
Bath is such a lovely place to simply wander. We’ve done the big things, like the Roman Baths, which are fantastic. But this time, we were more than happy to meander around and explore the little side-streets of the city. It has many of the big shops like Primark and H&M, but what we really love are the independent shops.
One shop that we really loved was French Grey Interiors – we’re always on the look-out for cute little additions for the B&B, and this was right up our alley. Full of scarves, mugs, and every good thing, we were sorely tempted to buy the entire shop! We ended up just buying a cute little sign to remind us to put the hens to bed.
We passed some of our favourite places, such as the Jane Austen Museum and Tea Rooms, but we couldn’t stop! We were on a mission – to find our lunch! We found the loveliest vintage tea shop – Bea’s Vintage Tea Rooms. We couldn’t resist their fantastic afternoon tea, which came with the most delicious buttermilk scones (not to mention tea and sandwiches and cakes!). Bea’s is definitely a stop to make in Bath!
Miss B&B was particularly happy to spend some time in one of her favourite bookshops – Mr. B’s Emporium of Reading Delights (isn’t that a fabulous name?!) This little shop has everything a bookish girl like her could ever need – including a chance to have a consultation with their resident bibliotherapist!
It was a fantastic day – I’m wondering when our next trip is going to be!
