Bath is gorgeous in any season, but an extra special atmosphere settles over it at Christmas, and it all starts on 22nd November when the ice rink arrives! The open air ice rink will be returning for the second year running and will be open every day throughout the season (except for Christmas Day).
If you’re planning a stay in accommodation in Bath the ice rink makes the perfect way to keep the family entertained, and each session is one hour long and skates are included in the price. Don’t worry if you have little ones who haven’t quite found their skating legs yet, the rink offers skating aids to help them get the hang of it.
The rink is illuminated at nightfall and it makes a beautiful sight with the Georgian city as a backdrop. Why not treat someone special to a turn on the ice and get them gift vouchers for a session? The vouchers are the perfect gift for Christmas, and they make a thoughtful touch if you’re planning a romantic break for two this festive season…you don’t even have to let on that it was out idea!
Bath may be a grand and elegant city, but with a little planning it’s also great fun to explore when you’re on a bit of a tight budget. For one thing, there are all kinds of free guided walking tours available if you know where to be and when. Thanks to the Mayors Honorary Guides, all visitors can be treated to an introduction to the city’s architecture and heritage.
We all know Bath’s one of the best cities for doing some damage to the old credit card, but it’s also handy to know those little areas of green that are close enough to retreat to when you want to take the weight off your feet and avoid the hustle and bustle for awhile. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Parade Gardens.
If you’re expecting a new addition to the family you’ll be planning for the future and working your way through an ever-growing list of things to get done before the big day, but a babymoon is the chance to take a few days out for yourselves and enjoy this special time before things get even busier!
