The Roman Baths seem to have been a den of vice and sex where “anything goes” was the order of the day.
Smallcombe Cemetery in Bath is the perfect place to visit if you want to escape the noisy streets and crowds of shoppers in the centre of the city. A fifteen-minute walk from the Southgate shopping centre is this oasis of calm and reflection, which I visited for the first time last month. I wish I had known about it before; I’ve lived in Bath for thirty years and never knew it existed.
I’m really excited to announce that my stories for B1, B2 and Advanced level students are now available to read for free on the Readable app for Android phones.
There are many parks in Bath, but my favourite is the Botanical Gardens. Every season provides the visitor with something different to see. In spring and summer the trees and beautiful flowers are in bloom, and the sounds of newborn birds fills the air. In autumn the golden sunshine looks amazing as it shines weakly through the brown and orange leaves as they fall from the trees. And in the frosty winter there is a stillness as you walk on the crispy grass and past the frozen ponds.
Learn some animal idioms at Bath City Farm with Bath City Language Coaching.
I went to Bath City Farm this week to look at the animals and help you learn some animal idioms. Bath City Farm is in Twerton, in the West of Bath, and is not a place that many tourists know about. Rather than visit the same old tourist attractions, take a 10-minute ride on the Number 5 bus and visit this peaceful farm where you will see some amazing views of the city of Bath.
