I know it might seem a little early to start thinking about Christmas, but if you want to secure a hotel room during this busy and beautiful time, it’s best to plan ahead! The Windsor Guest House is a fantastic place thanks to its excellent location, being just a short 5 minute walk to the city center and all the wonderful events taking place during the Christmas season! Without further ado, here are the top 3 reasons to visit Bath this Christmas!
A highly attended and one of the most spectacular and beautiful Christmas Markets in the UK – the Bath Christmas Market is an incredible reason to visit Bath at Christmas! The 18-day Christmas shopping extravaganza consists of more than 170 beautifully decorated wooden chalets in the heart of Bath’s Wold Heritage Site. You’ll be able to find handmade Christmas decorations, personalised gifts, hand-made toys, festive food and drinks, local artwork and designer jewellery, to name just a few and that’s thanks to the wonderful vendors of the Christmas Market. Not only is it a great place to get special Christmas presents, Bath during the Christmas period is wonderfully romantic, with fairy lights, live music and picturesque settings. Soak up the sights, smells and sounds as you wander around the market; we guarantee the aroma of warming mulled wine and freshly baked mince pies, enjoyed with a generous sprinkling of cheering carols that will get even the biggest of humbugs into the Christmas spirit!
Set in the beautiful surroundings of Royal Victoria Park and close to Bath’s famous Royal Crescent, Bath Ice makes the perfect day out for families, friends, couples and co-workers alike. Make an evening of it and take advantage of the licensed bar serving a range of beers and spirits, along with festive mulled wine and hot cider. You can also enjoy delicious wood-fired pizza whilst you watch the fun. A great way to surprise a loved one to an afternoon or evening of romance and fun!
Shopping for Christmas gifts can be a bit unbearable, especially in the run up where all the shops are very busy! In Bath, there is such an extensive choice for presents and you get to do it in the stunning Winter Wonderland that Bath transforms into during the Christmas season! For instance, just off Milsom Street is Milsom Place, a small yet very characterful Christmas shopping utopia. Featuring fashion brands such as Hobbs and Chanii B, alongside homewares brands including Yves Delorme and True Grace, you’re guaranteed to tick some presents off your list here. And then home to all your high street, Christmas favourites, including Debenhams, Boots, Hotel Chocolat, Pandora and Apple, you’re bound to tick some items off your list in SouthGate. You’ll be able to take a break or wind down in one of the many cafes or restuarants Bath has to offer to enjoy a glass of mulled wine or warm cocoa and tuck into some mince pies!
