    Going to Bath for a couple of days

    I'm off to Bath for a few days and I'm looking for things to do. I've looked at a few lists online of touristy things to do (the baths obviously ) but just wondered if anyone had any suggestions of good bars / restaurant or sites that aren't so easy to stumble upon.

    Cheers all.

    If the weather is nice, take a walk along the canal towards Bradford on Avon. Bath to Bradford on Avon along the Kennet & Avon canal towpath at www.paulspages.co.uk

    Sadly that very fine establishment closed about a year or so ago.

    The Theatre Royal is staging a production of The Sound of Music by the high quality BLOGS local am dram group I believe.

    Won't you go all wrinkly spending that long in the bath?

    Did this a couple of weekends ago and forgot to plan so wandered a bit aimlessly.

    -The Roman Baths Kitchen was awesome food, but a bit pricey.
    -The Abbey was impressive, if you dig that kinda thing, but didn't know about the tour so missed out on that.
    -The Baths were a lot more impressive than I thought they were going to be
    -Victoria Art Gallery was nice to wile away a bit of time and it was donation entry so very reasonable.
    -The indoor old market wasn't that impressive
    -The lanes of shops were nice, some nice arcades for browsing

    The Pump Rooms were a disappointment! I expected an old Newcomen engine with lots of steam and hissing. When walking around the old buildings look up. The higher up the less changes over the years.

    I thought along the same lines.
    After seeing what prolonged submersion can do to the human skin.. I'd advice not having a bath for too long xD
