Here’s a few (very belated) memories from my chilled birthday afternoon earlier this month. The weather was amazing so we hired a boat from Bath Boat Station and took a trip up river. I was allowed to sit back and relax while my boyfriend attempted to propel us up-river in a punt – if you’ve ever tried punting, it’s a lot more difficult than it looks!
If you have time to kill on a sunny day in Bath then I’d definitely recommend this for a morning/afternoon activity! A rowing boat would be quicker but they had all been hired out when we got there. We took just under 3 hours to get to the pub (Bathampton Mill, by the weir in these photos), stop for a drink and go back. We finished the evening with dinner and drinks at Italian restaurant Amarone (the dark chocolate and walnut brownie is AMAZING) 🙂
