Thermae Bath Spa vouchers

A day at the spa is the ultimate way to show you care and spring a Christmas surprise, especially at the incredible Thermae Bath Spa. This city centre haven is bursting with facilities, including a heated rooftop pool with views out across the city. You can book a package for two and spend some quality time with your partner, friend or family member, or simply buy a gift voucher. There are lots to choose from, with prices from a very affordable £36, and they are valid for 12 months.

Tickets and tours at Bath Rugby

If your loved one is rugby-mad, they’ll be over the moon with tickets to an upcoming Bath Rugby fixture. But why not upgrade their experience with a Matchday Hospitality package? This turns an ordinary day at the rugby into something really special, including gourmet food, service and entertainment. Everyone loves to feel like a VIP, even if it’s just for the day!
