5 post-lockdown day out ideas in Bath

29th April 2021

Lockdown is ending, which means that beautiful Bath is starting to open up again. Ready and raring to get out there, but don’t know what to do first? Here are some ideas to help you plan your first post-lockdown days out in Bath…

  • Treat yourself to a pampering day at Thermae Bath Spa

It’s official. The pampering palace that is the Thermae Bath Spa is reopening on Monday 12th April. Not absolutely everything will be open and there will be a raft of COVID-safe measures in place, but you can still treat yourself to a blissfully indulgent spa day. If you’ve been working hard, juggling home schooling and housework with no holidays on the horizon, this is absolutely the treat you need.

You’ll need to book one of a select menu of spa packages – Thermae Treat, Thermae Re-Kindle, Thermae Re-Energise or a romantic Twilight for Two package. Prices start from £85 per person if you visit mid-week, while the couples evening spa package is £95 for both of you. Full details on the Thermae Bath Spa website. 

  • Go wild at Longleat Safari Park

Longleat Safari Park is also open again from 12th April! This is the perfect opportunity to get some fresh spring air and see some incredible wildlife up close, so pre-book your tickets and round up the family. Most parts of the attraction will be reopening, including the drive-through safari park, Koala Creek, Jungle Cruise and Adventure Castle. Park capacity will be limited though, so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. 

  • Sip a craft beer with friends at the Electric Bear Taproom outdoor seating area

To celebrate the reopening of hospitality in Bath, the city’s own Electric Bear Brewery is set to launch a brand new collaboration craft beer. The chocolate, caramel and coffee stout, named Mokoko Chocolata, was brewed in partnership with another brilliant Bath business – Mokoko Café. 

It’ll be served for the first time from the outdoor seating area of the Electric Bear Taproom on Brassmill Lane from Friday 16th April. So, that’s your plans for that weekend sorted!

  • Take the kids to Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park

If your little ones have been desperate to escape the confines of your home, take them to Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park. This is the perfect spot for adventure play, park rides, riverside trail walking and of course, spotting reindeer, foxes, alpaca and many other farmyard and forest animals. 

Like Longleat, Avon Valley is back open again from 12th April and tickets are available to pre-book now.  The park will be running two visitor sessions every day, and will be closed in between for a thorough deep clean. There’s also reduced capacity to ensure social distancing, so book early to get your preferred date. 

  • Browse at the Bath Contemporary Artists Fair 2021 at Green Park Station

While the April event is cancelled, the first Bath Contemporary Artists Fair of 2021 is on Sunday 9th May at the marvellous Green Park Station. It features a fabulous and enormous collection of contemporary fine art, photography, textiles, sculpture and more, so is a perfect day out for art lovers. You can even stay next door at our gorgeous Green Park Garden Apartment.
