Romantic Things to Do
As one of the most romantic cities in the UK, there’s no shortage of things to do on a romantic break in Bath. Love getting adventurous and active? Prefer a relaxing day at the spa? Or maybe you just want to unwind and enjoy each other’s company? However you like to spend time together, you're bound to find some great activities to enjoy.
Have a Spa Day at Thermae Bath Spa
Great because… as one of the only places in the UK where you can bathe in natural thermal waters, a dip at Thermae Bath Spa is a totally unique experience. The rooftop pool is a gorgeous spot for enjoying views over the city skyline together.
Don’t miss… the Watsu for Two treatment, for complete relaxation of mind, body and soul.
Handy tip… plan your visit when the spa is at its quietest, just after opening at 9am. If you’re after more privacy, you can even hire the standalone Cross Bath across the road for just the two of you.
Enjoy the Views from a Bath Abbey Tower Tour
Don’t miss… for a more romantic experience, book a private tower tour just for the two of you, which includes Champagne when you reach the top.
Handy tip… romantic tower tours can be booked out of usual opening hours, so you can completely surprise your partner at sunrise or sunset.
Hire a Rowboat or a Punt
Great because… there’s nothing quite like hiring a boat and lazily making your way down the river on a bright sunny day.
Don’t miss… a tasty pub lunch down by the river, a well-deserved reward for all your hard work rowing.
Handy tip… never punted before? Take one of the free lessons that are available before you set off.
Take to the Skies on a Hot Air Balloon
Great because… a Hot Air Balloon ride is a truly memorable experience with incredible aerial views over Bath and the neighbouring countryside.
Don’t miss… the chance to spoil your other half with a Champagne hot air balloon flight for just the two of you.
Handy tip… even in the warmer months, it can be chilly once you’re up in the air, so make sure to take an extra warm layer with you.
Tuck Into a Picnic in the Park
Great because… romantic breaks don’t have to cost a fortune! Bath has many beautiful parks and gardens, so pack up a picnic and enjoy some quality time together.
Handy tip… Alexandra Park is a great picnic spot, with wonderful views over Bath.
Take a Romantic Stroll along Gravel Walk
Great because… for any keen Jane Austen fans, Gravel Walk was the setting for a proposal in Persuasion, as Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth finally agree to marry.
