The beautiful South West is home to some of UK’s most picturesque cities and two of our most popular launch sites – Bristol and Bath.
Keep an eye out for our 2018 Bristol guide, but for now here’s brilliant Bath:
If Bath has been on your bucket list for years and you’re looking to finally tick it off, here’s our take on the incredible city, which quite frankly, we can’t get enough of looking at from above.
Things to Do in Bath
- Roman Baths:
Famous for it’s incredible architecture and history, you can’t possibly visit Bath without experiencing the 2,000 year-old Roman Baths. Wander around the ancient heated rooms and plunge pools at one of the world’s best preserved Roman remains.
As well as the world-famous baths, there’s also a museum showcasing many objects that were once thrown into the sacred spring – a fascinating trip for the whole family.
2. Explore Bath by Bike:
As Bath is such a pretty city, why not hire a bike and cycle to magnificent sites like Royal Victoria Park, where you can take in the iconic Royal Crescent and even catch a glimpse of our Bath balloon taking off.
Next Bike Hire are the best port of call for cycle hire in Bath and have over nine station terminals.
3. Recharge at the Thermae Bath Spa:
Yes yes, we keep talking about the baths, but whether you’re the spa type or prefer the great outdoors, the incredible open-air rooftop pool at the Thermae Bath Spa should not be missed – awesome views both during the day and at night.
4. Treat Yourself to Tea and Cake:
Pop into Sally Lunn’s for a famous bun. You’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time at the oldest house in the city, complete with locally sourced foods and a museum with the original kitchen where Sally first opened her bakery back in 1680.
5. Get Glamorous at the Fashion Museum:
Known as one of the world’s top ten museums of fashion, to round off your trip with a bit of fun, why not check out Bath’s fashion museum where you can try on the wide range of Victorian dress? There’s also plenty of workshops and tours for all ages where you can discover more about the ancient gowns and famous pieces by top designers.
Weddings in Bath
Bath is of course far too luxurious to be the type of place you’d get married on a whim – it doesn’t have much likeness to Vegas. However if you are looking for a unique place to get hitched in Bath, there’s plenty of stunning manor houses and ancient spaces on offer. For something really different, look at the Lady Lena boat, the Guildhall or the Roman Baths themselves.
One lucky couple even hopped into one of our baskets and went up, up and away on a sunrise hot air balloon ride in Bath before their wedding ceremony.
Your Bath adventure awaits…
