her bad opinion and hate of the city in her last book, Persuasion. These opinions are greatly reflected in her writing style in both books. Whilst looking through the exhibitions one of the ladies working there was sitting down doing cross-stitch, of course I had to stop to chat. All staff there where period costume as well, anyhow this lady asked if Kylie and I were mother and daughter!!! I quickly rectified this, much to the amusement
of Kylie, this proves my case for not wanting to be grey haired yet!!!!
We decided not to go into the baths and also refrained from trying the ‘healing’ waters which apparently taste quite foul. There was a Big Bus tour here, so we bought tickets for it as it is a great way to see the city as it is very big and hilly. It is a very busy city. When the city tour finished, we changed buses to do the skyline tour. We sat on the top deck as per usual, but had to be careful of the low lying tree branches, I got hit a few times when not paying attention.
Next stop was Prior Park, which is owned by National Trust. The original homestead is a massive house on top of the hill which is now a Catholic school. Kylie and myself walked the gardens and took photos of the Bath Skyline. At the bottom of the gardens was a Palladian bridge which is one of only four built. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/priorpark/
