Take a stylish break with spoonfuls of history, at one of Bath's oldest houses.
Sally Lunn’s home is one of the oldest in Bath, having been built circa 1482. But when the young Huguenot refugee arrived on England’s shores in 1680, it soon turned into one of Britain's best-loved bakeries.
Weaving her way through the city’s cramped streets, Sally sold locals the bun that eventually took her name: a sweet brioche similar to those back in France.
The bun became a delicacy in Georgian Britain, and has survived to this day at the house where you can enjoy that most quintessential of British past-times – afternoon tea. Evening diners are treated to an assortment of traditional grub, with a wine list to match any other in town.
