Bath Spa opens.... and more

I just thought you might all like to know that - (at long last ! ) Monday 7 August is the opening day for the new Bath Spa . You can find all the information you need on their website : www.thermaebathspa.com

The Spa Visitor Centre (for the story of the spa through the ages) in the Hetling Pump Room is already open, admission free.

Also, if you're visiting the Assembly Rooms - the ballroom is hosting a special exhibition from 14 July to 28 August re John Bates, fashion designer. Entry to this exhibition is included in the price of admission to the Museum of Costume.

The last bit of news is a bit of a pain.... First Great Western is doing engineering work that will close the main lines west of Swindon from Sat 26 August to Sun 3 Sept. So, do check the situation for any journeys you are planning ! Information available on website : www.nationalrail.co.uk

Taking bookings isn't a guarantee - they did that last time!!

Interesting though that they haven't contacted those that booked the first time - and I know cos I was one!!
