Video: YouTube blogger Charlie McDonnell's guide to Bath closes in on 2 million hits
There’s no shortage of guides to Bath on the internet.
But a video made by a YouTube phenomenon which takes a highly personal tour of his home city has outstripped them all.
Thoughts from Home by Bath-born video blogger Charlie McDonnell, 22, has received almost two million hits.
His three-and-a-half minute video made two years ago takes viewers on a brief tour of Bath taking in places of significance from Charlie’s childhood such as his school Beechen Cliff and the spot where he had his first kiss, which is now the entrance to the SouthGate car park.

Charlie set up his own YouTube channel in 2007 and found success with one of his earlier videos “How to get featured on YouTube”.
During the past six years Charlie has made video blogs discussing everything from how to make a cup of tea, to his relationships and his grandfather’s battle with Alzheimer’s. He now has 1,839,424 YouTube subscribers.
He said: “I was home for a bit and I got thinking about what Bath might mean. It was interesting to re-visit all the places that had personal significance to me rather than just the places people expect.”
Charlie, who now lives in London, said: “ I really do feel fortunate that I got to grow up in Bath because it’s just a lovely place.”
