After a wonderful nights sleep, and endless bowls of cereal and toast this morning we now think we should walk it all off. Just a few steep hills away is the elegant 76m high Clifton Suspension Bridge which spans over the Avon Gorge. Crossing the bridge over and back we then walk in the bloody rain to Bristol CBD. Bristol is really just one large city......not a lot to see or do. After checking out the local market, shops and Harbourside we make a mad dash in the pouring rain for the car at Clifton........two very wet people later!
We head to Bath, the weather is better, but the traffic and crowds of people not good. We visit the Roman Baths, these are the remains of one of the finest spas of the ancient world - amazing!
A free (because we snuck in via the gift shop and not main entrance) visit to the Bath Abbey, a very beautiful structure.
We then wandered the streets like normal tourists. It's now 5pm and the sky is looking very dark so we head to the car......800m from the car and it buckets down.......we are soaked!
We finish our tour of Bath in the car, heading for The Circus, a magnificent circle of 30 houses which once housed famous residents, and then a drive along the Royal Crescent, more beautiful homes.
We drive around Royal Victoria Park, witnessing a very strange car parked, hanging over the edge of a stone staircase in the garden.
Still very wet we arrive Stoford where we are booked into Grayling House B&B for the night, a quick dry off with the hairdryer and we are out the door and down the road to The Swan pub for a meal.
