Day Trip to Stonehenge and Bath, England

by Katie Skrzek

Sep 23, 2022

My husband and I recently traveled to London on vacation. It was the longest trip we’ve taken together since our honeymoon six years ago. There is so much to see in the city, and even though we were busy the entire trip, we didn’t get to everything on our list.England

EnglandOne of my favorite days of our trip didn’t even take place in London. Since our visit was more than a week, we decided to spend the majority of the time in London, with one day trip to Bath and Stonehenge. We booked a full-day excursion through Viator. We left Victoria Station via bus early in the morning and drove straight to Stonehenge. We both heard mixed reviews of Stonehenge, with some saying it’s disappointing in person. However, we both enjoyed our visit and thought it was worth the trip. It was a cool morning, and we spent most of the allotted time strolling around the site and reading about the various theories at the visitors’ center.

EnglandOur group then traveled to Bath for free time and to visit the Roman Baths. We were starving and went to lunch as soon as we arrived. We stopped at the charming pub, The Crystal Palace. We decided to split two entrées of English classics: fish and chips and the pie of the day (spiced chickpea) with mashed potatoes, greens and gravy. Both were delicious and fulfilled our craving for classic British fare. After lunch we met our group at the Roman Baths to tour the museum. We then spent some time wandering the many shops before stopping for tea at Hands Georgian Tearoom. We each had tea and traditional sweet buns with clotted cream and jam. After a little more exploring, we met the bus for the trip back to London.England

Keep an eye out for more London details in my future blogs!

Ulysses, a New Hotel by Ash, Opens in Baltimore

Hotelier Ash welcomes its fourth hotel, Ulysses, to its collection. Situated in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, the 116-room hotel features an all-day café and late-night drinking parlor. The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design. The hotel earns its name, Ulysses, from a ship that brought Bavarian immigrants to Baltimore at the turn of the century. The name also pays homage to James Joyce’s legendary and revolutionary novel and to the Greek hero, Odysseus.
