Why Bath is the perfect place for a big celebration

16 September 2015


If you have a landmark birthday party to plan, or any other special occasion, you might want to get away to somewhere new. You can hire a property exclusively for you and your nearest and dearest, and use it as party headquarters and a base camp to explore the local area (and its nightlife, of course). But where to choose?

Choose Bath for culture, fine dining and a packed events calendar

Thousands of people flock to Bath every year for all kinds of special celebrations, from birthdays to wedding anniversaries and retirement shindigs. The vibrant culture of the city is a big part of the appeal, as Bath is bursting with fantastic restaurants, bars, comedy venues, arts and culture events, historical marvels, museums, galleries and much, much more.

A fantastic choice of Bath holiday rentals

However, there’s another reason to make Bath your party destination of choice. Bath has some of the finest rental properties in this part of the world, many of which are particularly suited for large groups and extra-special celebrations. The buildings in Bath tend to be grand, beautiful and luxurious, making them ideal for making your weekend away really special.

A great example of this is Alexander House, just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the city. This jaw-dropping property not only has all the space you’d need to house up to 16 of your loved ones (with 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms), but it is bursting with party-friendly extras.

It has an incredible kitchen to make any foodie happy (plus a second kitchen in case of disagreements about what to have for dinner) and it also has a heated indoor swimming pool, cinema room, bar, steam room and sauna, gym and games room, plus private landscaped gardens. This kind of luxury is perfect for those really special occasions, where you want to remember every single moment for years to come.

What to do in Bath during your weekend away

Even with a gorgeous and well-equipped Bath rental property to enjoy, you will definitely want to get out and about in the city during your stay – and there’s lots going on. Bath is known for its excellent food and hospitality, so food lovers will find lots of restaurants, stylish bars, gastropubs and cool cafes to choose from. There’s also the Thermae Bath Spa in which to soak away the hours (and soothe post-party hangovers) plus cinemas, theatres and a comedy club.

If you want to lose yourself in nature, Bath is perfectly placed to access the countryside and all of its cycling, walks and even canoeing. If you want to venture further afield, your group can plan a trip to Glastonbury, Longleat or even Stonehenge.

Depending on the time of year you visit Bath, you are also likely to encounter a seasonal or cultural special event of some kind, whether it’s Christmas festivities, music, film or literature festivals. To put it simply, it’s all going on in Bath – so come along and join in the fun!
