Bath

This weekend I went to Bath to meet my brother for a special occasion. We met outside the Pump Room Restaurant for brunch. Inside it was very bright and spacious with ornate decoration on the walls and ceiling. I had Eggs Benedict with ham. This was two lovely poached eggs on toasted muffins with hollandaise sauce. To finish I had a toasted Bath Bun with melted butter. This is a large light bun with currents and sugar on top. In the background the Pump Room Trio played gentle classical pieces.Outside of the Pump Room is Bath Abbey and the site where the first King of all England, King Edgar was crowned in 973 A.D. Inside the abbey the walls are covered with of plaques commemorating local people, and there is currently a display of the "Bath Abbey Diptychs". These are pairs of brightly coloured pictures and textiles detailed in gold, silver.From here we made our way to the famous weir and Pulteney Bridge on the River Avon. On the bridge there are narrow shops and tea rooms on both sides. We then made our way down to the water front where we sat for a while enjoying the sunshine.Then we went to the Royal Crescent which is the big curved row of Georgian houses that are synonymous with Bath. Here there is a museum in house number one, which was owned by Henry Sandford in 1776. One room is dedicated to a dolls house exhibition showing dolls houses from the period and the others are set out as a typical house from the time.http://www.romanbaths.co.uk/pump-room-restaurant
