WHAT: Bath hen weekend adventures
Bath is a city where chocolate making can fill your morning, Grease dancing can exhaust your afternoon and cocktail mixing can spill into your early evening! You could easily follow that with dinner at a top restaurant like Carluccios or Jamie’s, some fun at the comedy club and finish with guestlist treatment at the city’s excellent nightclubs. What a day! Planning your Sunday? If you haven’t already squeezed it in, a trip to Thermae Bath Spa is a must - bathe in the same natural waters as the Celts and Romans did over 2000 years ago, just a bit more polished. In between all of that there’s top shopping, charismatic cafes, quaint pubs and plenty of bars to visit. Sit on one of the outdoor tables on popular George Street, explore the newly developed Southgate shopping centre or even catch Bath Rugby in action (it’s popular with hens, especially if you can arrange to meet a couple of the players!). Whether you’re looking to dive right into activities or spending a more relaxing weekend exploring the spa and sights, Bath’s got more than enough hen weekend options for everyone!

WHEN: The best times to visit for a hen do in Bath
In the summer the city glows, the Bath stone reflects the sun to literally light up the buildings into the evenings, bars and restaurants spill into the historic streets and there's genuinely a really pleasant atmosphere. In the winter the cosiness of the city pulls you in, providing visitors with a warm welcome and a wealth of great venues to settle into. It's small enough to be manageable but large enough to give you and the girls a whole host of hen do options. There are a few exceptions but for the most part our recommended activities are usually available whenever you visit and the nightlife stays busy year round. Spring and summer enjoy the best climate, usually with sun and good temperatures, during these seasons Bath’s many parks fill with sunbathers and while the temperature drops over the winter months, it heats again up with mulled wine and the famous Bath Christmas Market.
