Bath in Winter
Thursday, 19th December 2019
Bath in Winter; a chance to see the city and oh so different yet equally as good in the cooler months. There’s plenty to do whether you want to stay in doors or head outside. Check out our top list of things to do in Bath this Winter:
1 – Walk the Winter Skyline
Arguably the best view of the city wide from this National Trust signposted trail; more strenuous in places it’ll certainly double up as a work out which is never a bad thing at this time of the year.
2 – Little Theatre
Check the listings for this fabulous family run old gem of a cinema that continues to be creative in delivering art-house, classic and one-off film experiences in central Bath.
3 – Better Extreme, Bath Sports Centre
Bath’s sports centre boasts a bowling alley, a trampoline park (with differing age programmes so little ones can safely avoid bigger ones), a swimming pool, studios and a gym….check the excellent and diverse programme online as there is something for all the family.
4 – Take a Winter time roof top dip in the Thermae Bath Spa pool
When it’s cold outside the roof top is an extra special treat. See the rooftops of Bath from the open-air mineral-rich naturally.
5 – Walk the Canal to Bradford on Avon, get the train back
The canal path is an easily accessible flat walk, or bike ride, to the market town of Bradford-on-Avon a lovely visit however you decide to get there. Along the way are café’s and pubs to stop if you need to and the path ends almost the train station for a glorious day out.
6 – Bath Rugby
Cooler Friday evenings at the Rec are amongst this rugby loving city’s favourite time to watch their team. It makes the mulled cider and red wine all the more justifiable.
7 – Prior Park, National Trust
Check out Capability Brown’s handy work at this world famous landscaped gardens all the year around but especially during the winter months when the National Trust has plenty of keep all the family entertained.
8 – Bath Abbey Tower tour
See the centre of Bath from the tower of Bath Abbey; but you’ll need to climb the 212 steps to the top first…but no pain no gain, it’s totally worth every step and is unique view of the city.
9 – Cycle the Two Tunnels
This old railway track has been lovingly made safe for cyclists (and walkers) by cycle champions Sustrans and takes in 2 old tunnels, one being the Combe Down Tunnel which is the longest walking/cycling tunnel in the UK and is a full mile long. Its flat ish and off road so perfect for children too. The tunnels are lit and a super exciting experience!
10 – Theatre Royal
Bath’s Theatre Royal attracts west-end productions, plus all the stars so it’s always worth checking the listings at any time of the year and if pantomime is your thing then you’ll be in for a treat. Oh yes you will!
