In the scenic surroundings of Bath lies the well-known Bath Spa, popular for its beautiful surroundings and luxury facilities.

The package includes two, three-hour spa sessions including time in the restaurant, as well as afternoon tea and presecco.

Packages: Other packages include the Time for Two, which is a choice of treatments and a two-course meal in the Spa’s Springs Restaurant, as well as four hours to relax and bathe in the natural thermal waters; Twilight for Two, where you watch the sun set in the rooftop pool and enjoy a light supper; and the Spas Ancient and Modern, which is entry to the Roman Baths, a three course set lunch or a Champagne afternoon tea and a two-hour spa session at Thermae Bath Spa.


Packages are from £80.
