Day Trip to Bowood House and Gardens
My parents took my brother, his friend and me too Bowood for the day. It would have been a lot of money, but we had a 'posh' roast dinner which made the rest free! In the playground there were loads of high climbing frames. I was a bit scared of them at first, but then I got used to it and wasn't scared anymore. Next to the climbing frame there was the very steep space dive, which is also known as the death slide - it was really scary! The equipment was not suitable for very young children, because most of the children who were four that went on the climbing frame or the space dive were really scared or started crying.
The roast dinner was really nice. My favourite bit of that was the Yorkshire pudding! After that was pudding I had cheese and crackers, mum had coffee cake so did my brother, my dad had carrot cake so did my brother's friend, it was really nice. After the dinner we had a walk through the grounds and went in a cave, which was pitch black. My dad kept making creepy noises and my brother bumped his chest on a rock. My favourite bit about Bowood was definitely the playground. I thought it was a brilliant family day out, I really enjoyed it!

I live very near to Bath, and have never actually been here until now. Very interesting, although it may drag on a little bit. Also on the pricey side if you whizz through the baths quickly. So make sure that you get as much as you want from it. The Roman Baths are very easy to find, right near BHS and Marks and Spencers. A definite must see in Bath!

Bath has such an interesting background that I'd recommend taking the double decker bus, but pick one that has a live commentator since they are far more interesting than the recorded version. I liked the bit about Queen Victoria always closing the curtains of her train compartment when the train passed by since she hated the place after a famous writer from Bath insulted her. Bus tour is a bit pricey but aren't they all!

Bath's Roman Baths
Took my two grandchildren to Bath to visit the Roman Baths. It is an amazing place with beautiful architecture and such an insight into the Roman civilization. We found the audio guides very informative and the children loved using them. We all threw money into the baths and made wishes. It was a wonderful experience for all of us and well worth the money.

Krater Comedy Club
On Friday my other half and I went to the Krater Comedy Club at the Komedia on Westgate Street. I managed to get a ticket deal with Groupon which included a 2 course meal for two for about 23 quid. We got to the venue at 7pm although the doors open at 6pm. The show started around 8pm and we got to see 4 comedians in 2 hours followed by a disco.
We enjoyed the acts and had a great time and would definitely go again - although next time we'd eat before hand and just go for the entertainment and drinks at the Komedia as the food wasn't up to much.
Really goodnight out and would recommend it to fans of comedy.

The City of Bath
Bath is a city famed for its elegant beauty, its Roman remains, its ancient streets with traditional British shops, its Abbey and idyllic wide Avon. Yet eager visitors come here and find a newly-erected shopping mall, unnecessary and quite inappropriate, with amplified music issuing from the big doorways of multistorey stores. Further on they come to the real Bath, but find the same kinds of store among the traditional and the same noise of intrusive music. Bath badly needs to return to its true self.

Lunchtime Snacks at Bath
I work in Bath and it really is a great city. It can get really busy and times, especially during the summer and at Christmas time, when the German-style market takes place, next to the Abbey. Bath is full of sandwich shops, fast-food takeaways and cafes, but many of the locals here head for the pasty shops at lunchtimes. There are two really good ones, both run by the same company. One is behind Next and Dixons, tucked away down a narrow backstreet, and the other one is at the opposite end of the city centre, close to M&S.

There are loads of really good restaurants around the centre of Bath, although many of the best deals are available during lunchtimes only. At the top of Bath's Podium Shopping Centre, a superb Chinese restaurant offers a really cheap buffet lunch, with an enormous selection on offer. This is also available in the evening, although the price increases.
Also popular at lunchtimes in Bath are a number of top Cornish pasty shops, sandwich shops, Thai restaurants and all of the usual fast-food favourites, including MacDonalds, Burger King, KFC and Pizza Hut. If you were only in Bath for a day, make sure you try the fish and chips at Kingsmead Square, and try eating them on one of the nearby benches underneath the giant plane tree, although watch out for pigeons!
