It’s the largest city in Somerset. It’s been voted the number one spot for spa breaks in the country by TripAdvisor users. And, last but certainly not least, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – owing to its deep-rooted Roman history.
All in all, Bath is a fantastic city with SO much to see and do. And if you want our humble opinion, it’s so much better in the summer.
So here’s our take on what you can do in Bath over the summer holidays…
Royal Victoria Park
So you need to wear out the kids, right? There’s no better place to start than Royal Victoria Park. Dating back to 1830, this huge open space is absolutely perfect for the summer holidays. Lined with greenery and lovely flower beds, it is a magnificent spot for you to get some fresh air and take in nature. However, it also has some great play areas for the kids, and lots of space for them to run off all that energy. As a parent, you’ll get the best of both worlds!
The Roman Baths
We’ve already hit you with the bombshell that Bath is a world heritage site, and the Roman Baths is a key reason for that. These baths are perfectly preserved and will give you a brilliant insight into what life was like for the Romans. Again, it’s the perfect combination, as both you and the kids will get some quiet time and some history lessons.
So you’ve hit the park, soaked up the incredible history at the Roman Baths, and now everyone is a bit peckish. Thankfully, Bath is bursting with a range of fantastic restaurants. From the Pulteney Arms, serving up their delicious and famous Sunday roasts, to Dough Pizza, an Italian-run pizzeria that offers so much more than any normal pizza restaurant – there is something for everyone.
After all that, you’re not really going to drive home, are you? The Royal Hotel, Bath, is a Grade II listed building with an in-house restaurant and linked spa. In our humble view, it’s the perfect place to stay during your visit to Bath. Give us a call today on 01225 463 134 to book a room with us. We can’t wait to meet you!
