Before we could get to Bath, we had to get through a series of unfortunate events. First, the hotel staff looked rather scared when we asked if breakfast had started yet (it was 7am and breakfast apparently starts at 7:30am). Then we had almost made it to the tube when I realized I didn't have my tube pass (though it may have actually been in my bag) or my BritRail pass (most definitely in our room). Next, the underground station we needed was closed due to flooding. However, when we turned around, it was open in the other direction. Needless to say, we caught the train an hour later than planned.
The train out to Bath took an hour and a half, allowing us to sit back, relax, and read a little. Once in Bath, we found our ways to the Tourist Center and purchased tickets to the Roman Baths and the Fashion Museum. Both had audio tours that were informative and interesting but very different features.

Between the Roman Baths and the Fashion Museum, we had sushi, a fun change from most of the food we've been consuming on the trip. I'd show you pictures, but I ate mine too quickly.
From Bath, we took the train an hour to Salisbury. In Salisbury we walked to the gorgeous cathedral. It was really beautiful (and quite wonderfully cool inside). We finished the trip with a dinner in Salisbury, complete with a glass of cider.
