    1. Hi Tracy, I wish I lived closer as I would like to go to all the events! My poor hubby won’t want to keep driving backwards and forwards to Bath, so I’ve got to made a decision while the tickets are available.

    1. Hello Kokila, how lovely to hear from you – I will be over to your blog as soon as I’ve left this reply.

      Two of Jane Austen’s novels are largely set in Bath, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. The Jane Austen Centre, Bath (www.janeausten.co.uk/)
      has a permanent exhibition which tells the story of her time in the city.

  8. Last week we were in cheddar and longleat. Originally we had planned to go to Bath to show my niece and nephew to show them the city but due to time constraints we could not make it. Sad we missed it. Sounds like a wonderful festival for kids

    1. How lovely Shashi it's years since we last went to Cheddar – must try to visit again this year. Bath is a wonderful city, but you didn’t miss the festival as it starts in September – so maybe it will be time for another visit by then. 

    2. Oh yes I didn't look at the dates. Not sure I will be able to persuade my husband to drive me that way again unless ofcourse if we have visitors which I don't think is going to happen :-)
