Christmas in Bath 2016

Make your Christmas and New Year a truly memorable, and Royal, one in 2016.

This year is flying by and it’s nearly Christmas again! Bath and The Royal Hotel will be celebrating with lots of festive delights – bright lights, great food and of course top accommodation.

Market Madness

The Bath Christmas Market is back and will be open from Thursday November 24th through until Sunday 11th December.


There will be 170 chalets selling products from cheese and chocolate through to knits and jewellery. Grab yourself a mulled cider and simply wander around taking in the atmosphere if shopping isn’t your thing as there will be choirs and other entertainment throughout the Market period. There will also be charity stalls offering great products, plus the obligatory food and drink stalls where you can warm yourself up with something tasty.

The Market will be open every day from 10am. If you’re a local then you can enjoy the Bath Resident’s Discount too.


We’re offering a great Christmas Shopping Break here at The Royal so that you don’t miss any of the action. You can stay with us in one of our comfortable en-suite bedrooms, with full English breakfast, plus a delicious 3 course dinner in our Brasserie Brunel, from only £65.00 per person per night. Simply book quoting Christmas Shopping Offer.


You can always make your Shopping Break even more of a treat by adding a visit to the world famous Thermae Bath Spa to your stay. Book a Royal Spa Break which includes accommodation, Breakfast and Dinner, a 2 hour visit to the Thermae Bath Spa, plus a Taittinger Champagne Cream Tea, from as little as £139 per person.

Get Yer Skates On!


If walking around shopping hasn’t helped burn off some of those Christmas calories then you’ll be pleased to know that the Ice-Rink is back in Royal Victoria Park over the festive season, plus Glow in the Dark Golf. Great for both children and adults alike.

Party Time!


Christmas Parties are popular with both locals, businesses and visitors and our Brasserie Brunel is getting booked up already for the forthcoming festive fun. We’ve got Festive Lunch Menus available from £11.95 for 2 courses, 3 courses for £15.95 and Festive Dinner Menus from £18.95 (all prices per person).
