Adventures in Bath

I had a little mini break last week in Bath with my friend Charlotte. We spent a lot of time walking around in the drizzle and visited the Fashion Museum, VV Rouleaux ribbon shop, the indoor Guildhall Market and an amazing place called Bayntun's booksellers. This was the last stop of our stay and we got an impromptu tour in the workshop where they repair and restore old books in the traditional way. It was such a rare treat and we got the chance to see some really interesting old machinery and tools for sewing books, binding and covering them.

We also ate lots of nice food at the Green Bird Cafe, The Green Rocket and the Landrace Bakery and I also got some time to do a little drawing and painting too!

Overall, a lovely little Bath adventure.
Amazing brunches at the Green Bird Cafe - I would highly recommend!
