Five Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Bath

Bath is one of the most romantic cities in the UK, and there’s an abundance of activities for couples to enjoy on a Valentine’s break. Here are five ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the city…

1. Take in Bath’s Stunning Skyline

One of the things that makes a visit to Bath so special is the city’s close proximity to the countryside.

Take a relaxed stroll around one of Bath’s beautiful parks, or, if you’d prefer something more energetic, head on the Bath Skyline Walk to take in the stunning views of the cityscape.

You can also enjoy a stunning view of the city from the top of Bath Abbey. Go behind the scenes and climb the 212 steps to Bath Abbey’s roof, with stops at the ringing chamber and bell chamber to discover their fascinating history.

2. Hop Aboard a Boat

Take to the waters and discover a new side of Bath on a romantic boat trip.

Enjoy a unique perspective of Bath and beyond on a boat trip with Pulteney Cruisers, leaving from the iconic Pulteney Bridge.

If you’d prefer to take the helm, hire a row boat or punt from Bath Boating Station and charter your own course on the Kennet and Avon Canal.

3. Capture your Visit on a Photo Tour

Photo Tours in Bath offer the perfect opportunity to discover the city.

Enjoy a day out around Bath, taking in some of the city’s most romantic spots and hidden gems, all the while learning about Bath's fascinating history and capturing some outstanding photos. 

You'll be shown great viewpoints and unique angles so that you will have fantastic photographs to remember your visit by. 

4. Relax With a Spa Trip

Bath’s natural thermal waters, which contain 42 different minerals, have been used for their restorative and healing properties for centuries. Bath is the only place in the UK where you can bathe in naturally hot, mineral-rich spa water, making for an unforgettable and romantic experience.

Take a trip to the newly-refurbished Thermae Bath Spa. Bathe in the city’s thermal waters and take in the spectacular views from the open-air rooftop pool, and refresh your senses in the stunning Wellness Suite.

No.15 Great Pulteney hot tub

Alternatively, visit the recently-opened Spa 15 at No.15 Great Pulteney. Take a dip in the cedar wood hot tub, warm up in the barrel-shaped sauna, and enjoy a massage in one of the individually-designed treatment rooms, including the Coral Room, which features a stunning coral-covered ceiling, and the Sock Room, which has individually knitted socks hanging on the walls.

Head into Bath’s surrounding countryside and visit the beautiful Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa. Set within the estate’s 500 acres of unspoilt parkland, Lucknam Park’s stunning spa boasts eight state-of-the-art therapy rooms, five thermal cabins, a salt water plunge pool, experience showers and a relaxation room.

5. Walk Ancient Paths at the Roman Baths

Discover Bath’s ancient spa history with a trip to The Roman Baths. Tread the ancient pavements and take in the magnificent steaming Great Bath, before exploring the remains of the ancient heated rooms, changing rooms, and tepid and plunge pools.

Make the most of Bath’s natural thermal waters with a Spas Ancient and Modern Package, a unique experience that spans over 2,000 years. The package includes entry to The Roman Baths, a delicious three-course lunch or Champagne afternoon tea at the Pump Room, and a two-hour session at Thermae Bath Spa, making for the perfect romantic day out.
