Bath Tourism Plus launches new campaign to promote winter breaks
11th August 2010
Bath Tourism Plus will be launching ‘Winter Highlights’ - a new campaign to promote winter breaks in Bath. The campaign will include a brand new brochure and website packed with inspiring ideas for individuals and groups looking to visit the beautiful World Heritage city of Bath between September and March.
The campaign will highlight Bath as an ideal place to beat the winter blues - a city which is fast-becoming synonymous with the festive season for pre-Christmas breaks, as well as a relaxing retreat and spa destination for the New Year.
The ‘Winter Highlights’ brochure and website will provide a full guide to visiting Bath including information on shopping, listings of festivals and events and details of the country’s favourite Christmas Market - returning to the spectacular setting between the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey to celebrate its 10th year. In addition, there will be ideas on spa breaks and suggestions on how to make the most of a romantic getaway to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Coach and tour operators will also discover valuable information including how to get to Bath, details of attractions and accommodation options.
Marie Matthews from Bath Tourism Plus, is heading the ‘Winter Highlights’ campaign and said: “Unlike other places that wind down for the winter period, Bath is a year-round destination and is an ideal choice for visitors during the winter months, with superb events and festivals and world-class attractions”.
Bath Tourism Plus will be launching the new ‘Winter Highlights’ website (www.visitbath.co.uk/winter) and brochure in September.
