I am a freelance writer, living in Bath with my wife and son.
I love my city, and love to live here. I write about Bath every day, and sometimes about travels in Ireland.

The Springboard For The City
Green Park Station is full of surprises. Built beneath the massive glass roof of what was once a large Victorian train station, the space is now full of independent traders and shops. Though markets are frequently held in the huge open space in the centre of the station, the permanent stalls built around the walls are wonderful, and make up a very special part of Bath.
Green Park could be a superb place to embark upon a cycling tour of the city, courtesy of Green Park Bike Station. With a beautiful city and all sorts of urban and rural bike paths, this is a lovely way to discover the area.
Need some tunes to get your weekend off to a funky start? Follow your ears to Resolution Records in their newly set up shop. With live DJ'ing and a huge array of genres on offer, this place always has great tunes pumping out. With refurbished stereo equipment and bargain vinyl to be snapped up outside, there;s something for everyone, whether serious muso or amateur vinyl enthusiast.
Green Park is a vibrant and special part of Bath, which is a fast ten-minute walk from Bath Spa Station. It is also very close to Queens Square, and right next to the banks of the Avon. Arrive there at the weekend and you are almost guaranteed to see some markets and stalls set up, and perhaps a live band playing. If you arrive at quieter times, then there is more than enough to enjoy.
