Having spent a long weekend in Bath I thought I should give some awards for the Best Things We Saw in Bath. This is wholly idiosyncratic as we completely failed to make it to many of Bath's main attractions such as the Abbey (and yes, we were staying about 50 yards away from it).

Best Ruin

The Roman Baths  (Well, duh!)

Best Museum

The Herschel Museum, a Georgian house with a garden and a tiny cinema in the cellar where they show an excellent film narrated by Patrick Moore.

Best Restaurant

DeMuth's vegetarian restaurant where Caro had the unusual experience of being able to eat everything on the menu, and thus having Choice.

Honourable mention to the Circus, where we had a lovely lunch on our last day.

Best bookshop

Mr B's Emporium http://www.mrbsemporium.com/

(but run a very close second by Topping and Co  http://www.toppingbooks.co.uk/ )

Best shoe shop

Shoon - I needed some smartish low-heeled sandals for a wedding and they brought me at least seven possible pairs.  Sorry, can't get at the website.

Best clothes shop

Oh, all right, Uber, for the Not Your Daughter's Jeans http://www.uberview.co.uk/index.html

But there were lots more museums, restaurants and shops that we failed to get to.  Must go back sometime.
