On the second day of our trip, we headed to the lovely town of Bath. First order of business was to find a place to stay. We got lucky and found this place, right downtown.
The Elgin House B & B was just perfect for us. Here is a view from the back.
We then decided to make our way to this place we found out about that was supposed to have wonderful fish ‘n chips. After asking several people for directions, we found it. Filled ourselves up and headed over to the Roman Baths.
The Bath Abbey was stunning!
The next morning we walked around town and took in the sites and a few charity shops.
By midday, we decided to grab a couple sandwiches for the road and head to our next destination, Oxford.
The last two pictures were taken at Christ Church in Oxford. The gardens were so lovely!
After spending a couple hours in Oxford, we decided to make our way toward our next destination which was The Cotswolds and the town of Banbury was where we decided to look for a place to stay. Again we got lucky and found the Easington House, another charming B & B.
Here is the Banbury Cross (not the original). You can barely make out the “lady on the white horse” in the background. I was tickled to find out the old nursery rhyme, “Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross” was based on this sweet village. We arrived here in the evening when most of the shops were closed, but we did walk around a bit and got a bite to eat. The next morning, after a yummy English Breakfast, we hit the road. Next up, Stow on the Wold, Broadway and Stratford Upon Avon.
