Family Treasure Hunt in Bath
We wanted to end our summer in Bath, as our eldest has been studying the Romans and missed his trip in lockdown, so a visit to the Roman Baths was the top of our list. I had ideals also that we would visit the Thermae Spa, however you have to be over 16 to enter, so I had to rethink about what to do on our weekend away. I turned to pawprint family, which run by former scouts provide fun badges and challenge packs to assist home learning and scouting programmes. They do several city trail packs and Bath was one of them, so I purchased this as our fun activity. I have been to Bath several times in my lifetime but seeing the city this way was so much fun and more informative than I could've imagined, once completed you feel you have a real feel for the place you have been, with its rich history and you find all sorts of glorious shops and eateries along the way. The children were really engaged and were excited to explore a big city. We visited the Roman Baths, Sally Lunn's Tea Shop, The Royal Crescent, The Circus, Pulteney Bridge, Bath Abbey, Jane Austen's House, and numerous statues and house plaques along the way.
We also had a gorgeous dinner at Tagine Zhor, the food was some of the best food I have tasted in a long time eating out, I spoke with the owner who displayed such passion for the cuisine telling our son how he prepares it all fresh, my 8 year old now thinks Moroccan is his new favourite cuisine. This family run business has been running for 2 decades now and it was packed, and for very good reason. I can't recommend it enough and is well worth a visit.
The morning before going home we went to Sally Lunn's for a brunch to taste one to the infamous buns and drink some rather lovely tea, all before heading to the massive sweet shop for the children before driving back.
