Sew Cute Abroad: Weekend Recap 7 Part I

My friend Sarah and I decided to take a last minute student trip to Bath and Stonehenge. We went through the same group that I went to Oxford and the Harry Potter studios. It's an easy way to do trips! Basically you pay one price for all the transportation, tickets, and tours that are included in each trip. 

For this trip we got to visit the city of Bath, United Kingdom then we made a second stop to see Stonehenge. In this post I will tell you all about my trip in Bath! Be sure to check back for part II to see my pictures from Stonehenge. 

While in Bath I fell in love with the architecture and small town feel. Although the city is large it was super cute and had a small community feel. It was amazing to get out of London for the day. There was a lot of grass and lots of puppies walking around!

Bath is famous for this bridge that is modeled after a bridge in Florence. The architecture style of Bath is described as Georgian. It was really cool because all of the buildings were made out of a certain limestone. This limestone is only from Bath and gives the city its signature yellow tone color. 

Another major landmark of Bath is the Abbey Church. Apparently there has been a church in this same spot for hundreds of years. It's amazing to see a city as old as Bath because there is nothing that old in the United States!

In the church there were 20 or so huge stain glass windows. They had so much detail and beautiful colors. 

For lunch we ate at Sally Lunn's which is a restaurant only in Bath. Sally Lunn's has a signature bun which is only made in Bath and has a secret recipe. I got mine with cinnamon butter but they had other sweet and savory toppings. It was delicious! If your in Bath it's a must see because it's so unique to the city!

Have you traveled to Bath before? Let me know in the comments!
