It should come as no surprise to learn that most people who visit the city of Bath venture to the spectacular Roman Baths that were established over 2,000 years ago, but you’ll miss out on half the fun if you don’t check out the Thermae Bath Spa before you leave. Here is where you’ll be able to do like the Romans did and actually soak yourself and unwind in the area’s thermal waters.
There’s no need to worry about sitting on ancient stone steps while you refresh yourself; the Thermae Bath Spa is a modern affair that would no doubt have left the legions of Caesar speechless.
Located in the heart of the city, this award-winning Natural Spa provides two thermal baths, an open-air rooftop pool, an indoor pool, a steam room, and an 18th-century Hot Bath. Connected is the fabulous Cross Bath – an open-air thermal bath housed within a gorgeous Grade 1 listed Georgian building.
As you enjoy far-reaching views over the city, you’ll be relaxing in the same hot spring water that soothed the Romans and the Celts. Best of all, there are no joining or membership fees to deal with. If you feel like indulging yourself, just turn up on the day and pay a one-time entrance charge.
For those who are really in the mood for treating themselves, there are over 40 spa treatments and packages available, making this the perfect getaway location. Traditional massages, hot stone treatments, facials, and Watsu, the Spa’s signature treatment, are all on offer.
If you’ll be coming with your significant other, try opting for the Twilight Package. You’ll experience the gradual change from afternoon to evening as you let the warm waters help you unwind. The all-inclusive price also includes a dish from the ‘Springs Menu’ and a glass of house wine, lager, or juice in the restaurant.
The hot springs of Bath have been enjoyed by visitors since before the name Bath had even been struck upon. If you’re in the city and feel like taking some time out for yourself to relax and let everything go, this is one attraction that you won’t want to miss.
There are a number of beautiful hotels in the bath too if you want to make a weekend experience of it. To name but a few, look at the Bath Abbey Hotel, No. 15 Great Pulteney, and Henrietta House Hotel which are all centrally located.
