We spent half our time in Bath at the restaurant. Although the food was outstanding, it was a little disappointing spending all of our time at one place, but I wouldn't have enjoyed running around the city with a sick baby (and he surely wouldn't have enjoyed it, either).
Bath was founded by Romans in AD 60. It is now a world heritage site and every building is made of the gorgeous Bath limestone stone. Most of the buildings were built in the 1700's and was thought of as the "New Rome" in England. The main thing I wanted to do was tour the Roman Baths.

The water looks a little radioactive, and with good reason. The pipes are made out of lead and traces of amoeba are found in the water. Of course, that didn't stop all of the visitors from touching the hot mineral water.

We made it to the bus right on time and I slept pretty much the whole way back to London. Thankfully, Daniel was feeling better and we made it home safely.
If you were to come to London and wanted to take a trip to see another city, I would recommend Bath over any other English city we have been to. It is just a 90 minute train ride away, and it drops you off right in the city (vs going to the countryside, where you would need a car most likely to get to your destination). There's a lot to do, with the abbey, bath, spas, and shops. Unlike York, it just looks really different from London, too.
Thanks for reading! If you've been to England, any other English cities we should go to? We will take a day trip to Cambridge soon- I've heard so many great things about it.
