Few British towns can claim the type of historical pedigree Bath can. Not only does it contain some of the most perfectly preserved Roman structures anywhere, it is also home to breathtaking examples of Georgian architecture at its most formidable, and retains an old-world atmosphere that lends itself to romantic strolls and intimate picnics. Below is our list of the 6 most romantic things to do in Bath UK.
1: Take a stroll on Pulteney Bridge – When you stroll out onto the Pulteney Bridge you will be forgiven if you suddenly feel as though you’ve been transported to Florence. Along with that city’s Ponte Vecchio, it is one of only 3 bridges in the world lined with active retail shops.
2: Dinner at the Boat House – The stunning Victorian Boathouse on the River Avon is close to the city centre. It features landscaped gardens and compelling river views and can provide an unforgettable setting for a romantic alfresco dinner for 2 at twilight.
3: Picnic at the Royal Crescent – The Royal Crescent is an iconic architectural landmark and peerless expression of Georgian majesty. A picnic on the lower lawn pretty well defines romantic things to do in Bath UK.
4: Take a hot air balloon ride – In Bath? That’s right. Every day (weather permitting of course) balloon rides can be had at Victoria Park. Float over the city on a cushion of air and enjoy spectacular views that will get your heart pumping.
5: Dinner at the Ivy – If you really want to impress your paramour take them to the Ivy Brasserie for dinner. This is elegant dining at its best and is considered one of the places to see and be seen in Bath. The menu is contemporary British, the setting is posh and the food is exquisite.
6: The Skyline Walk – If hot air balloons leave you feeling a little queasy there’s another way to drink in Bath from above: a romantic stroll along the National Trust designated Skyline Walk. The landscape is mesmerising, the views are breathtaking and the atmosphere tres romantique.
