Bath’s very own Fashion Week has been in full swing for a few days now, but on until the 29th, Bath In Fashion is well worth a visit if you’re in or around town…
…or indeed if you’re not – Bath is so lovely any excuse is good for a cheeky visit, in my books!
Not one for shirking what I preach, I headed over for a long weekend myself last week.
Bath really is one of those places you fall in love with a little bit more every time you visit.
True, this post comes a little late to the party (festivities took off on the 21st), but fear not, there is still much fun to be had! Some of the highlights awaiting you in the next few days are:
