Overlooking the Bath Skyline

Follow the National Trust's three-mile circular walking route on a romantic ramble out of the city centre to its tranquil hilltop surroundings.

Hot air balloon flies over Royal Crescent

From the Sky

Hot air balloons take off around the city throughout the summer months and glide gracefully over the honey-coloured stone buildings of Georgian Bath. Launch from Royal Victoria Park and fly over the rooftops of the Royal Crescent and the Circus before drifting out to the surrounding countryside. With a bottle of Champagne on board to toast your future together, what could be more romantic?

Palladian Bridge

On the Palladian Bridge at Prior Park Landscape Garden

Created by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ralph Allen to complement his magnificent mansion on the Bath skyline, the eighteenth-century Prior Park Landscape Garden is set in a sweeping valley with panoramic views across the city. Laid out by Capability Brown, the gardens include a stunning Palladian Bridge, one of only four in the world, and a series of lakes. Prior Park is a National Trust property and has links to the Bath Skyline Walk. 

Bath Narrowboat

Aboard a Bath Narrowboat

Experience the magic of the Kennet and Avon Canal by hiring a Bath Narrowboat. Privately charter a boat for the day, or book a bed and breakfast stay, and pop the question as you enjoy an intimate journey along the picturesque canal.

In an Open-Air Thermal Pool

Thermae Bath Spa is one of the most romantic settings in Bath. Open into the evening, you can enjoy a moonlit dip in the open-air rooftop pool overlooking the beautiful city. For total intimacy, the stand-alone Cross Bath, fed by its own natural hot spring, can be hired for exclusive use.
