The ideal honeymoon destination needs to be special, but this doesn’t necessarily mean sun-drenched tropical beaches halfway across the world. Special comes in all forms – and the perfect luxurious location could be closer to home than you may think.

The stunning historic city of Bath is a truly special place to spend a romantic week, offering everything from world-class food to relaxation and pampering. It’s fast becoming a hotspot for those seeking a luxe city break, and couples from all over the world are flocking to Bath for their honeymoons.

If you’re looking for something a bit different for your honeymoon, here are just a handful of the many compelling reasons why Bath could be your dream destination…

Amazing architecture

A stroll in the city is like stepping back in time, and lovers of Jane Austen will leap at the chance to walk among majestic Georgian buildings. The whole of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, something no other UK city can claim. Must-visit gems include Pulteney Bridge, The Circus, Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent, Assembly Rooms and the Pump Room.

Hot springs and spas

If you’re looking to lose yourself in spa days, steam baths, couples’ massage and pampering, Bath is the ideal choice. The city is famous for its spa culture, dating all the way back to Roman times when its natural hot springs were discovered. There are countless places to enjoy a spot of relaxation, including the Bath Priory Hotel, Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel, The Spa at The Royal Crescent Hotel and the Thermae Bath Spa at the heart of the city. There are also plenty of small, independent spa and beauty boutiques dotted throughout Bath.

Rolling countryside

Bath is unique in that it is a thriving cosmopolitan city that also happens to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK. It is right on the edge of the Cotswolds, internationally known as an Area of Outstanding Beauty. A city break here offers the best of both worlds, especially if hand-in-hand walks or lazy cycle rides in stunning greenery and countryside is your idea of honeymoon heaven.

Gourmet delights

As well as a bustling music, comedy and arts scene, Bath is a paradise for foodies. It boasts many award-winning gourmet and fine dining restaurants, as well as quaint cafes, innovative eateries and of course – many places to enjoy a top-notch afternoon tea. There’s also a vast number of places to sup a cocktail, a fine wine or enjoy a traditional pub atmosphere, as well as a cosy coffee after a walk along the river.

Incredible accommodation

Bath has many hotels to choose from, but those looking for a private, luxurious haven for their honeymoon will be looking for something a little more special.
