There are plenty of reasons to take a break in Bath. Whether you want to relax and recharge your batteries, enjoy a romantic stay, experience one of Bath’s fabulous festivals, or explore further.
Bath is affectionately recognised as one of England’s most beautiful cities, and with its many incredible examples of Georgian architecture, world-class museums, Roman history, natural baths and shops, it is no wonder that visitors have been visiting Bath for over 2,000 years.
The United Kingdom includes four countries and as many different trips to plan. In town, the atmosphere in the pubs is legendary, having tea in one of the upscale lounges is an opportunity to get up to speed on British time, shopping during the sales gives you extra reasons to come and the cultural life is immensely rich. On the other hand, the landscapes outside the cities are very typical, with coasts on all sides and of all types (cliffs, beaches, castles, lighthouses, etc…) and in the centre of the plains dotted with lakes, where a legend is to be discovered in each place.
Built for pleasure and relaxation, the magnificent Bath has been a wellness destination since Roman times. The waters are still a great attraction, both in the ancient Roman baths and in the most modern thermal baths, which house Britain’s only natural thermal springs in which you can swim. Bath’s compact and friendly centre is full of places to eat and drink, as well as some of Britain’s most beautiful independent shops, making it the ideal holiday destination. Immerse yourself in Bath’s remarkable collection of museums and galleries and enjoy festivals, theatre, music and sports all year round.
Occupying a luxurious country house surrounded by one hectare of magnificent gardens, The Bath Priory Hotel and Spa offers a luxury spa and a renowned restaurant, less than 3.2 km from Bath Abbey. The Bath Priory restaurant is run by Chef Michael Nizzero, who prepares modern French and seasonal dishes. Opening onto green gardens, the Provençal-inspired Garden Spa by L’Occitane features a heated indoor swimming pool, adjoining a sauna and a modern hammam. L’Occitane beauty treatments are available by appointment. Nestled in the heart of Avon’s rolling countryside, the Bath Priory Hotel and Spa is a 20-minute walk from the Jane Austen Centre.
Located in a boutique hotel in the city centre, this elegant restaurant, decorated with works of contemporary art, welcomes you to two rooms with beautifully laid out tables and offers you the opportunity to taste modern cuisine with Mediterranean influences. The Olive Tree has long been associated with modern British cuisine, served informally but exceptionally. Seasonal local products dominate an eclectic menu, whether it’s an excellent fixed price dinner or a complete à la carte experience.
This signature treatment is carried out in historical natural thermal waters. Combining elements of shiatsu massage and acupressure, your body moves freely and is nourished in a soothing state of relaxation – a truly exhilarating experience.
A sea salt scrub first softens your skin, then a warm mud wrap infused with black pepper, rosemary and lavender dissolves muscle tension. Wrapped, a soothing head massage with a deep inhalation of incense erases and calms the mind.
