A Bath getaway
Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, a family holiday or a city break, Bath, is a unique and quaint city that checks all of the boxes.
From the home to the Roman Empire in the UK to the birthplace of Jane Austen’s inspiration , Bath holds a breadth of history and remains a unique, quaint and stunning city destination.
What we, at The Brew, love about this tucked away destination is the serenity of this gem amidst the crazy, fast paced, built up world of southern England. It’s like cracking open a time capsule to yesteryear, a period that only exists now in poetry, the Downton Abbey’s of television and the award-winning movies from Jane Austen novels.
There is genuinely no place like this, even in the most historic parts of America. This city encapsulates the perfect blend of rich history with sprinkles of elegance and beauty that could not be recreated in a modern city due to cost + the demands of a 2015 way of life.
We loved the pace of life, the culture, and the feeling that around every corner you are walking the heavily trodden steps of an incredible number of famous stories, just magical.
This city has something to feed everyone’s palate. If you’re looking for somewhere to wine + dine, with a choice of not one or two, but three Michelin star restaurants, the options are endless. From exquisite backdrops to crème de la crème of master chiefs, this will be an occasion stored in the memory bank for years to come.
After strolling the streets, maybe you’re looking for something a little more casual? Try one of the many gastro pubs for a traditional and more hearty meal.
It’s no wonder why a city so full of rich history and sprawling with stunning Georgian architect, has been named a World Heritage site and is chosen as a coveted location for numerous film sets. There’s plenty to take in, from admiring the creative + stylish boutiques to meandering down the cobbled stone pathway along the river Avon, so long as you’re stylish tootsies can hack it!
Bath is home to the only place in the UK where you can enjoy naturally hot spas and view the original roman style baths. Swoon. You can walk along the extensive ruins and original hot springs and then enjoy a spa bath at the Thermae Bath Spa. A history lesson paired with a treatment is my kind of education. Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it to?
If it’s just the two of you a nice spa weekend might be more your liking but if you fancy an activity or bring along the kids then Longleat Safari Park is a must. Situated on an estate, this safari park encompasses acres of land, a stately home and plenty of animals roaming the roads. Ready for a spoiler alert? Chances are you’ll get up close and personal with the cutest little monkey who may just choose to hitch a ride on your coupe. The hardest part will be resisting the temptation to bring home that furry friend.
As if Bath isn’t equipped with more than enough beauty, Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world, is a short distance from the city. This ancient prehistoric monument is a site to see and one that sits on the bucket lists of many – so why not check it off during your visit?
We choose to park our tired selves at one of the many quaint bed and breakfasts. This is a more affordable option, yet not lacking in any style or class.
Or you could choose to make your stay extra special by staying at The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa [a fan favorite], the quintessentially English design paired with plush green parks will leave you feeling as if you’ve just discovered your every own secret garden.
If you’re ever on this side of the pond and looking for somewhere special to spend some time, check out this dainty city. And tell them we sent you!
