May watch


While the summer holiday season might seem like a lifetime away with those spring gales rattling the Georgian sash windows, we’re optimistic that


the upcoming mini-heatwave is just the beginning of things to come. So, in anticipation, we’ve set forth


down the path of looking our best when the sun shines, whether we’re holidaying at home or abroad. We’ve been shopping for summer body and soul must-haves (page 64), testing out some quick fi x- beauty treats (page 67) and putting ourselves through some slightly more sweaty paces with the latest fi tness craze to hit the city: hot yoga (page 73). Buoyed up by our new found energy,

we also turn our attention to the restoration game, by taking a tour of three Bath town houses and discovering the very different ways in which they’ve blended old with new (page 26). And for more interiors inspiration, we check out a unique house with incredible canalside gardens, just off Widcome Hill (page 96). Elsewhere, we look forward to a new


really wild event to hit the city next month, The Festival of Nature (page 46), get some advice on cooking fi sh from Michelin-master Nathan Outlaw


Cover image © Jo Chambers – turn to page 26 for the feature


ahead of his Topping & Co demo later this month (page 57), and get our latest Japanese literary fi x from Mr B (page 51). So that’s the rest of May sorted – it’s looking bright in every sense of the word . . .
