While we were in England, we spent a day exploring Bath. I’m a huge Jane Austen fan–and she refers to Bath often in her books. I also knew she lived there for a while. We had a fabulous day with gorgeous weather! Highlights included lunch at The Real Italian Pizza Co., seeing the Roman Baths, and taking in the Royal Crescent {featured in many period films}. We visited the Jane Austen Center but honestly, it’s not worth the time. The street vendors, musicians and energy in Bath inspired me!

So much history in these ancient baths.

Matthias got an handmade leather journal from this amazing street vendor.

Lunch at The Real Italian Pizza Co was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend. And they have an italian ice cream shop next door that’s yummy, too!

Period costumes made the Jane Austen center fun. It was actually fairly dry and uninteresting. But we made our own entertainment!

The Royal Crescent, or The Circus was so cool. I loved seeing it in person! Do you recognize it from period films?

Hanging out with cousins is the BEST!

Have you visited Bath? Is it on your wish list? Next time we’re in England I want to visit Jane Austen town where she was born!
