New Years Eve 2017 in Bath

Shaun and I have been a couple for over 18 months but have not yet had a proper New Years Eve together. Last year, I was working in the Travelodge up until late, so this year, we thought we would do something special. We booked ourselves into the Abbey Hotel in Bath and had a lovely time exploring the city and indulging in 2 and a half hours of spa bliss in The Thermae Bath Spa. Here are some snapshots from our visit. If you are looking for a short break in the UK, Bath could be the place for you!

We arrived in Bath three hours before our hotel was ready for us – so took the opportunity to wander around the city.

Bath is such a beautiful place. Everywhere you look is a new photo opportunity.

We decided to go for lunch at The Roman Bath Kitchens which is located in the Abbey Square right in the centre of Bath.

This is the RBK Club on a sourdough bap with grilled chicken, streaky bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, cranberry mayo and skinny fries. Delicious!

Pretty happy that the food has arrived.

Feeling well fed and ready for more exploring.

The Pulteney Bridge has actual shops built into it all the way along.

This is the Parade Gardens in Bath which overlook the River Avon. Stunning and only a short walk from the hotel.

Abbey Hotel, North Parade, Bath, Somerset, BA1 1LF

The hotel and all its festivities.

Our room was huuuge! It had a bed, sofa, walk in wardrobe area and a bathroom with some posh looking freebies.

Tea, coffee and biscuits. What more could you possibly need.

The highlight of the trip was our visit to Thermae Bath Spa. You cannot book in advance so you just queue for as long as it takes. On New Years Eve at 3pm-ish we waited for about an hour which I didn’t think was too bad. It was worth the wait though. Once inside, we had access to a minerva bath, the wellness suite (infrared sauna, ice chamber, aroma stream rooms and a relaxation room) and an open-air rooftop pool. It was incredible chilling out in a heated swimming pool under the stars looking across at the city lit up by night. We paid £38 each for two hours and it was definitely an experience to remember.

Feeling relaxed and very clean, we got ready for our evening meal.

We then set off to Turtle Bay for some Caribbean foods!

COCONUT & PINEAPPLE PUNCH – Coconut, pineapple, condensed milk & fresh cream

SPINACH, AUBERGINE & SWEET POTATO CURRY – Spinach, aubergine & sweet potato in a fragrant light curry sauce. Green beans & kidney beans cooked with Jamaican spice. Served with steamed rice & roti flatbread.

A walk around Bath at night.

Bath Abbey and Christmas Tree on NYE.

Our hotel looking very festive.

After our busy day of walking, eating and relaxing we both fell asleep at 11:30pm and missed midnight. Oops!

Our hotel breakfast the next day: Full English #foodporn

After breakfast, we took a walk along the River Avon before catching our train home.

It was such a brilliant trip! Bath is a beautiful place with so much to offer. If you are looking for a short getaway, a spa break or just a walk around a historic city, Bath is for you. Grab your camera, jump on a train and go make some special memories!
