At Nougat London, we recently had the luxury of taking a day trip to the beautiful town, Bath. Set in the scenic countryside of Southwest England, Bath is a fascinating place, famous for its wonderful architecture, iconic sights and interesting history. We set out in style boarding the Belmond British Pullman train.
This was quite the experience in itself as we entered a world of pure indulgence in one of the luxurious, vintage carriages, famous for once running on legendary 1920’s services. It was an adventure of fun and glamour, as we glided through the beautiful scenery whilst sipping on champagne and enjoying smoked salmon and caviar.
On the terrace, we were able to have a lovely view overlooking the baths and see Victorian statues of Roman emperors and governors in Britain. We stopped for afternoon tea at the decadent Pump Room restaurant. The striking neo classical salon featured a fountain for drinking the hot spa water and we thoroughly enjoyed eating scones and sipping on tea whilst enjoying live music from the resident pianist.
The beauty of Bath goes far beyond this. The streets are cobbled and characterised by beautiful 18th century Georgian Houses including that of the famous novelist Jane Austen. There is even a Jane Austen centre, which offers you an insight into what it would be like to live in Regency times and everything else that inspired Austen’s famous novels.
