Bath with a side of James Bond

A rather damp start today. We run through the wind and rain, past the marina, to catch a bus into the centre. Bath Abbey is our first stop. We saw its roof from the baths yesterday. It has a wonderful ceiling and a lovely stained glass window.

Next stop is Pulteney Bridge famous for being one of only four bridges in the world to have shops built across it. I’ve been to two of the three others in Venice and Florence but not to the fourth in Germany. The views down the river including the weir are lovely.

A quick lunch in a cafe on the bridge before we walk towards the Assembly Rooms. Free but a tad disappointing as it’s literally three empty rooms, however impressive.

Our next stop is the Odeon cinema. We wanted to go to one of Bath’s smaller cinemas where you can also eat but it was fully booked. A pint in a very busy pub next door and then it’s time to watch…. A Time To Die. The final thrilling outing of Daniel Craig as James Bond 007.

Three hours later we wander around looking for somewhere to eat and land on the Bath Noodle for guess what … noodles. Very tasty. We nearly get the bus back but are tempted again by Uber but to a restaurant/pub called the Boathouse. A final pint before the five minute walk back to the campsite, a bit of TV and bed. Our final busy and fun day in Bath.
