Bucket List Bath

Bath. Its a place that’s been on my bucket list for years and years. My birthday was coming up, what better time to plan a little romantic getaway with the fella?

We booked into a cheap and cheerful Holiday Inn just on the outskirts of the city center, a 10 minute walk to the town, if that. T’was pleasant enough. Bed and breakfast, clean and pleasant can’t grumble at that.

The walk to the town center was a little bit run down, closed shops, boarded up looking a little bit grubby but we didn’t mind as when we got to the town we were pleasantly surprised. With its 18th Centuary Georgian, honey-comb coloured architecture, bustling with visitors, the town was simply breath taking. I knew it was going to be a good weekend.

First stop : The Roman Baths : It’s a little bit pricey to hit the museum but totally worth it non the less. Handheld audio and free to roam as you please and hear about Baths rich history and heritage. A brilliant experience.

Free Natural Springs Water : It’s warm and tasted a little bit gross to be perfectly honest but it boasts good health with its natural vitamins, minerals etc so we drank it!

Pulteney Bridge : A romantic stroll along and below the bridge, we sat along the river for a while just taking it all in. Beautifully lit up at night with a couple of funky, quiet bars alongside. We sat outside, listening to the water trickle away sipping on a gin and tonic. Bliss!

The Royal Crescent : The Royal Crescent is a historic street of large townhouses in the city, forming a circle. Amazing architecture. Number 1 is open as a little museum so you can see what it would of been like back in the day. A great experience.

My ULTIMATE favourite experience has to be The Thermea Spa : Britain’ s only natural thermal spa. WOW! What an experience! I would highly recommend you book before you go as I’ve never seen a que so long for people wanting to go in.

Once booked, you enter, they hand you robes, towels and slippers and off you go. Free to do as you please. No phones allowed in the spa, so no photos i’m afraid. Try the  Minerva pool – float around in the ridiculously relaxing warm pools. Roof Top Thermal Bath – naturally hot and simply amazing, taking in the views across Baths town. I think we spent at least an hour relaxing in here.

Inside the Spa there is an array of experiences to try as you please from, ice chambers, Georgian steam rooms, Roman saunas, celestial rooms and more. They are all simply fantastic!

Book a treatment in advance! I highly recommend a full revive hot stones massage. I swear, I’ve never felt so relaxed in all my life, I came out feeling like a new woman.

Take a trip to Bath, it will be worth it!

Happy adventures.
