EXPLORE NEW HEIGHTS IN BATH

August 2018

Sometimes the best way to explore a city isn’t by car or foot; sometimes it’s best to see it from the water, by horse and carriage - or even from the air! However you decide to travel, here’s a round up of some of the best events and activities to try in Bath this summer.


HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE

As the balmy weather continues, why not make the most of summer’s clearer skies and speak to our friendly concierge team about booking a balloon ride - so you can experience Bath as you’ve never seen it before? We recommend a balloon ride to any guests seeking an extra special experience - and a trip you’ll never forget! So book your flight through our concierge team and you can look forward to spectacular views across Bath and beyond – and perhaps even a glass of Champagne mid-flight.

GO BOATING - OR PADDLING - IN THE SUNSHINE

When the weather is warm there is no better way to explore a city than by boat. The River Avon and the Kennet & Avon Canal both run right through Bath, so why not hop on a cruise, hire a rowing boat or a kayak, and see the city from the water? We recommend Lady Lena cruises.

You could even go paddle-boarding and admire the beautiful Pulteney Bridge from the water.

BATH ON THE BEACH

There’s no need to go on holiday this year - the Caribbean has come to Bath! Bath on the Beach has got hammocks, cabanas, palm trees, beach volleyball, loads of fun games and a great beach bar serving food and drinks - all in the middle of Royal Victoria Park, Bath. Open every day 10am – 9.30pm or visit www.bathonthebeach.co.uk

MINERVA'S OWLS

Date: 25 June - 10 September
Minerva’s Owls of Bath 2018 is a major public art sculpture trail featuring a giant flock of individually decorated, supersized owl sculptures displayed across the World Heritage city of Bath.

Why owls? The Roman Baths temple, built in 1AD, was dedicated to Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom, whose symbol was the owl.

The high profile, interactive sculpture trail celebrates the Roman heritage of Bath. How many can you spot while you’re out and about?

BATH AT TWILIGHT

Once a month, lively late-night events are transforming the city streets with evening entertainment, shopping and dining. The themed Bath at Twilight events run from 12pm-8pm on the following dates:

*Thursday 23 August - Your Bank Holiday Starts Here*
*Thursday 27 September - Freshers’ Week*
*Thursday 25 October - Autumn Food Celebration*

There’s no need to book - simply enjoy a stroll through the city and discover the evening’s events!

We hope we may have inspired you with our recommendations! For further information, please feel free to contact our concierge team who will be happy to help - 01225 355 335
