The evenings are going to be getting longer soon, and that means one thing – the return of the costume drama. If all those floor seeping hems and empire cuts have you feeling all excited then you’ll love a visit to the Fashion Museum in Bath. Better yet, if you combine it with one of the Royal Hotel’s short breaks in Bath you’re in for the ultimate girlie weekend.
You can choose between a double or twin beds when you book, so these breaks make for the perfect reunion with your old friends from university, a treat for your mum or a way to show the woman in your life how much you care. The Fashion Museum will be hosting Fifty Fabulous Frocks, an exhibition of dresses to dazzle, until the end of 2013 so this season is the perfect time to visit.
The museum is home to hundreds of fascinating outfits and artefacts that reflect fashions over the centuries, and the oldest pieces date all the way back to the 1600s. It’s a great place to start if you want to get a feel for the city, and your break will include two hours in the Thermae day spa.
