Thanks very much mate! You'll see as the photo tour continues . I'm not sure which terraces you mean overlooking Lansdowne, I may not have those but say I have without realising. If not, I plan to go back in the spring so another potential photo route for me .

very nice pictures.
Well I think so, thanks Patachou, a fantastic continental feel, in a very English style if that makes any sense at all lol.

PART IV
St. James Square to Pulteney Bridge

From the heights of St. James Square, yet another wealthy retreat amongst the city's many terraced streets, a seemingly short walk down Lansdown Road and onto Broad Street brings you back down to the centre passed the entrance to one of Bath's shopping malls. Unbelievably, it is quite a hike! Before you know it, you're back down on the Pulteney Bridge next to Great Pulteney Street. This street features in the most recent dramatisation of Vanity Fair, also featuring the Sydney Gardens at the end of the avenue, a place I did not visit.

Wow - another great set of pics. Thanks. I've looked up the crescents I was referring to and they are Lansdown, Cavendish and Somerset. After viewing these I always returned to the city centre via The Paragon which I think is in your last set of pics. By the way your photo with the view downhill to a church spire and the tower of The Abbey is superb.

Yes I recognise two of those crescents, and I'm sure I did pass them, in fact, this one might be one of them:


Glad you like that particular shot, took ages to get the light right with the sun in the wrong place, had to wait for the sun to go behind a cloud lol. Bath is full of these lovely downhill views isn't it. Cheers.

PART V
Pulteney to Bath Spa Station

This is where the tour of Bath ends as it was the last leg of the walk around town. Having walked back from Pulteney Bridge to the Abbey, there is a nice array of squares and open spaces where music was being played, artists' work displayed and people just enjoying the sunshine - a perfect laid back summer day. Branching off from here are a number of smaller streets between the Abbey and the new Southgate Shopping Centre which was still under construction back in the summer.

I hope you have enjoyed this tour of Bath and I sure will be making more city tours from spring onwards.

Another great set of pics. I love The Abbey and it's urban setting. What did you think of the new shopping centre? I know it's only partially open at the moment.

Oh certainly, worth a good walk around I'd say.

Thanks mate! Yes the Abbey is a nice communal setting with at least three squares surrounding it. As for the shopping centre, they've done a nice job in building it in the same colour stone as the rest of the city so it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb like the Cabot Circus in Bristol. I haven't seen it since August though but it looked encouraging.

If you're into a laid-back, heritage journey back in time - then it is definitely your type of town. You'd love Bath, you can come and visit Bristol, Cardiff and Bristol all on one trip.

Beautiful images of Bath. A city I could, easily, live in or around - with its access to the lovely 'West Country', and to Bristol. A growing and popular university too.
