With its famous Georgian buildings and convenient public transport links Bath is the perfect city for a hen party. Celebrate your impending nuptials in the city of romance and tread the footsteps of one of the world’s greatest novelists Jane Austen. She may have been a sworn spinster, but few novelists have penned quite so earnestly about the trials and tribulations of finding love, so what better city to mark an engagement than in the one she once lived in?
Start your weekend at The Jane Austen Centre before heading to the bustling city centre. With more than 400 shops you’ll have no excuse not to do a little pre-wedding shopping, and while Bath Abbey may be a little out of your budget for the big day it’ll get you thinking about venues and wedding styles!
There’s plenty of choice after dark too, as the city is dotted with eateries, pubs and clubs – and if you fancy something different then you can see what’s on at one of its theatres. The Royal Hotel offer elegant accommodation in Bath at just£99 per person. This Grade II listed building makes just the place to return to after a day enjoying the sights (and shops) of the city and before heading out to experience the nightlife.
