After 2 days exploring Bath, my boyfriend and I decided to spend the Sunday having a picnic so we could relax enjoy each other and soak up the sun.
I had heard good things about Prior Park landscape Gardens which is part of the National Trust and just 1 mile from Bath city centre so before we took the short bus journey there, we whizzed around Bath picking up some delicious treats for our picnic.
Here are the best places to pick up some nibbles for that perfect picnic:
Bladuds Building, 7 The Paragon, Bath BA1 5LS
On the corner of The Paragon and the popular George Street this deli makes exquisite fresh pasta every day by hand. At lunch, they serve up a selection of pasta dishes in grab and go boxes for £4.50. Be sure to pick up a cannoli or two to eat for afters (or for just while you pay like I did!)
Edgar Buildings, 8, Bath BA1 2EE
A lovely Italian Delicatessen. We picked up charcuterie, olives and ordered one of their salads to take away.
37 Walcot Street, Bath BA1 5BN.
Grocer selling organic, local produce with an onsite deli. Great for plump, juicy strawberries and blueberries.
29-31 Walcot St, Bath BA1 5BN
A great place to pick up some farmhouse cheeses and a bottle of wine.
The cakes are delicious here. Try the home-made Lemon Tart or the Granola bar.
1 Hot Bath Street | Ground Floor, Bath BA1 1SJ
For Turkish treats such as homemade coconut cake, baklava, Turkish delight and Turkish coffee.
1 New Bond Street Place, Bath, BA1 1BH
For beautiful freshly baked breads. Note that this bakery is closed on Sundays.
19 Barton Street, Bath BA1 1HG
For the most mouthwateringly good donuts and of course, the fresh bread! They also serve beautiful salads, wraps and sandwiches to take away.
They regularly offer one day sourdough bread making classes if you fancy yourself as a baker or to experience something new!
7 Bridge Street, Bath BA2 4AS, England
Cute deli serving a good selection of veggie and gluten free choices amongst others. Great quiches and salads. I didn’t try, but heard that they do the best hot chocolates too!
