Of all the beautiful cities I've visited across the world, Bath remains one of my favourites. 

If you've never been fortunate enough to visit, the small city is centred around the beautiful Bath Abbey, but there's literally something for everyone... because opposite the Abbey, is Primark. 

This year, the Christmas spirit just hasn't hit me. I've been to Christmas parties, winter balls, I've had Christmas dinners and the house is fully decorated, but I can't seem to get into the festivities as a I normally would.

So as a last minute attempt to find the Christmas elf within, myself and the beautiful Lizzie decided to meet up in Bath for some all things Christmassy, christmas food, christmas shopping... and Christmas cocktails.
To break up our very hard, busy day of shopping (ahem) we decided to go for a walk alongside the river. 

In the summer of 2014, I actually did tours around Bath, so I treated Lizzie to some exciting facts which she absolutely loved...

Although it was quickly time to get back to the shopping.

Unfortunately, we had just missed the Christmas markets, which was wholly disappointing. 

Usually in the build up to Christmas, the streets are alive with the buzz of tourists seeking out homemade presents, and smell of mulled wine from pop up Apres Ski bars. 

We managed to console ourselves by going for some cocktails though... 

Due to being based in Oxford, Lizzie had to catch a train early-ish. So I decided to call upon my other favourite red headed beauty, to catch up in a rooftop bar overlooking the Christmas lights of Bath.
We ended up visiting 3 of the best Cocktail bars Bath had to offer... which left us in very very good moods to walk back to the station. 

But not before we had one last nose around the town.
It was EXACTLY what I needed to get into the Festive spirit. The combination of my favourite people, one too many cocktails, and getting some Christmas shopping done, made for the perfect day out.

If you're in the area, I 100% recommend Bath as the ideal out, it's absolutely beautiful.

Ciao for Now!
