If you are visiting this year and staying at one of Bath City Centre's hotels, here are some local delights you should not miss:
Bite into the Sally Lunn bun.
This brioche-style bun has a long history. Local legend states that it originated from a Huguenot refugee who arrived in Bath City in 1680. Sally Lunn worked as a baker whose shop was located in the then Lilliput Alley. The refugee created the unique bun and it soon became a favorite staple for breakfast and afternoon tea.
Try the aptly named Bath bun.
This is another popular bun famous in the city. The Bath bun was invented by a physician named Dr. William Oliver way back in the 18th century. The original buns were so tasty that the doctor’s patients soon became fat — and fast. The bun was then replaced by the Bath Oliver biscuit, which is the plain version.
Indulge in a full English breakfast.
Of course, you can always find British favorites in Bath like fish and chips and the favorite full English breakfast. This plateful of goodness is a great way to start the day in Bath, especially when you have a lot of walking to do. Indulge in the British classics that use locally sourced ingredients of the city.
