A visit to Bath

We had a fabulous few days away at CenterParcs, Longleat with a visit squeezed in to beautiful Bath.  The weather was wonderful and Bath was surprisingly quiet.  
I spotted this gorgeous little Figaro parked in The Royal Crescent
 A few doors down and we were in the Georgian Garden

and what did I spot through the window....
 ...mannequins!
It must be a sewing school but I haven't been able to find out anything else about it...perhaps its part of the university?  And then it started to rain... 

 It absolutely poured down.  There's nothing more invigorating than a proper downpour.
I loved it. 
A few streets away, completely drenched from head to toe, we found the wonderful Museum of Costume.










  Finally a visit to the Victoria Art Gallery.  No photos allowed of the artworks but I did take a beautiful photo of the ceiling.  I was a bit disappointed with the lack of postcards at both venues and can't understand why they don't have more for visitors to buy.  The costumes at the Museum of Fashion are so so beautiful.  I would have gladly bought a good image of each one of them or most of them but they didn't have any that I thought were worth buying.  Neither in the art gallery.  I do like a postcard as a momento of my visit and to display.  Being a visual, rather than wordy person, I find them better than books.
Of course we did a little bit of shopping too, or rather my daughters did.  Bath is full of lovely shops, mostly very expensive, lovely shops.
I think another visit is due soon, this time it will be with a girlfriend and an underused credit card!

Oh how lovely - next time my husband says he thinks there's nothing to see in Bath, I'll make sure he visits this one!
