Gemma’s Birthday Celebrations in Bath

In September, Gemma celebrated her 30th birthday. Fashion loving uni besties since studying at UCA Epsom, somehow we have now both managed to reach the years of 30 and some. In order to celebrate in style, a weekend in Bath was in order, which Gemma planned perfectly.

Along with Gemma’s school besties, we all met for lunch at Sally Lunn’s famous restaurant where we enjoyed traditional Bath  Buns. After the delicious lunch, we checked-in to the boutique Bath Abbey Hotel, got ready via face masks and prosecco, and started the evening with cocktails at the hotel’s Art Bar.

After dining close to the hotel, we walked along the historic streets of central Bath, arriving at a gin bar serving gin in teapots. We spent the evening talking, pouring gin and laughing, before making like Cinderella and returning to the hotel at midnight, swapping our Saturday shoes for slippers and slices of birthday cake.

The next morning we ate breakfast at Sally Lunn’s (it’s worth a second visit!) and then had a gorgeous afternoon tea at The Pump Rooms. The truly English experience of listening to classical music and enjoying the finely crafted afternoon tea delights was every bit refined and elegantly indulgent. 

To burn off all those sweet treats, we walked to The Crescent, admiring the Georgian architecture Bath is so very famed for, before returning back to the hotel to collect our luggage, drink another pot of tea and say our farewells until Christmas festivities due in December.
