Things to do on a Relaxing Weekend Break to Bath

Roman Baths in Bath, England

Cheap weekend breaks in the UK can be a fabulous way to get away from it all without spending a small fortune. Bath in Somerset is perhaps one of the most popular weekend breaks as it is easily accessible from all corners of the country and its historical charm will make you feel as though you have stepped back in time. The city has been classified a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its spectacular Georgian architecture and the quaint cobbled streets provide ample opportunity for relaxed exploration. Here are five things for you to enjoy whilst enjoying a cheap weekend in Bath.

Visit the Spa

Whether it’s the historic Roman Baths or the modern Bath Thermae Spa, you can unwind in the warm waters of the city’s natural spring. Feel your tensions melt away whilst you enjoy spectacular views of the skyline.

Splash Out on Afternoon Tea

After a day of wandering around Bath, you will more than likely have worked up a bit of an appetite and what better way to satisfy that hunger than with a decadent afternoon tea? The 18th Century Pump Room is one of the grandest buildings in Bath and is well worth a visit. Why not enjoy a glass of champagne as an extra treat?

Marvel at the Architecture

Bath’s grand Georgian buildings are what the city is most famous for and will undoubtedly have you wishing that you could afford one of your own. The most well-known street in Bath is without a doubt The Royal Crescent consisting of 30 terraced houses overlooking a beautiful park. No1 is now open to the public so you can get a glimpse into what life on the Crescent used to be like. The Circus is another architectural marvel and there are even rumours that Johnny Depp was looking to buy here!

Shop, Shop, Shop

No matter what your tastes are Bath has something for you. In 2010, the main street was voted Britain’s Best Fashion Street in the Google Street View Awards and there are a number of arcades and cobbled side streets which offer the best in high street and boutique fashion. One of Bath’s many charms is the fact that it is so compact, which means that as long as you wear sensible shoes, you can get around most of the sites in one day.

Make the Most of the Pubs

What better way to end the day than with a nice meal and a bottle of wine in a cosy pub. Bath has an abundance of welcoming establishments, the majority of which serve delicious food and offer great hospitality. If you have chosen to bring your car with you on your weekend break, you should take a drive into the surrounding countryside where you will stumble upon a number of the lovely country pubs for which Somerset is so well known.
