Having spent some time recently in both Cologne and Bruges for Christmas Markets, it's difficult not to compare Bath's festive display to those. Ultimately, Cologne's markets will always have my heart, however each city has their unique charm thanks to the surrounding architecture. In this case, Bath Abbey provides the magic by taking centre stage at the main market. Beautiful! A couple of drinks later and we headed to Café Rouge for dinner - with a few bags of mandarin, cinnamon & clove potpourri in hand from the markets.

If you follow along with my Insta-stories, you'll know after dinner I popped into the San Francisco Fudge Factory shop on our way back to the hotel, picking up a couple of enormous chunks of white chocolate fudge - I can't recommend it enough! Then finally, at just ten in the evening, I felt pretty awful and my body gave up entirely, seeing us head back to the Francis Hotel early. No complaints here though, just look at the gorgeous Roman Bath themed shower wall!
Feature Rooms was the perfect end to the day, and thanks to such gorgeous decor, provided the perfect excuse to lounge around to soak up the surroundings (checkout at midday). Pancakes and bacon with maple syrup were on the menu for breakfast, along with cranberry juice and a beautiful view of the Queen Square! Did I mention I love people watching?
Francis Hotel enough. I'm guilty often of staying at modern chain hotels for conveniency and comfort when travelling, however I'll have to eat my words and say there's something special about an authentic stay at a hotel that reflects its location's character. On this occasion, I'm talking about four poster beds and antique phones, sliced strawberries and shower walls depicting the Roman Baths. Oh, and not forgetting the colourful flocked wallpaper!
