Bath hen party guide
Our Bath hen party guide is perfect if you’re planning a hen weekend full of unusual activities, great entertainment and experiences for the bride-to-be.
Bath is a health and beauty hotspot. Literally. Named after the public baths created by the Romans after the discovery of hot springs all around the city centre, it has long since established a reputation for luxury and indulgence. It’s no wonder then that the beautiful city of Bath has quickly become the top destination for a bit of R & R.
If you’re looking for a special destination for your hen party, somewhere that oozes sophistication and refinement, Bath is perfect for you. Let this guide from Polestars ease the stress of planning by directing you to some of the best places to wine, dine and dance the night away during your stay in the gorgeous city of Bath.
Bath hen party guide – Shopping
Shopping is a staple on any girl’s getaway and you needn’t worry about missing out in Bath. If it’s luxury goods you’re lusting after then the Milsom Quarter should be first on your list. This designer centre in Bath is home to jewellery stores galore and more designer fashion stores than you could believe, including the ultra-trendy Vintage to Vogue for serious stylistas with a passion for bygone glamour. You won’t have to sacrifice your favourite high street brands though; you’ll find Next, Monsoon and Dorothy Perkins in the Central Area alongside many others.
Bath hen party guide – Eating Out
Bath is a foodie’s paradise and you’ll be spoilt for choice at every meal. Go rustic and buy fresh, local ingredients from the regular Farmers’ Markets or enjoy ultimate sophistication and a glass of champagne over high tea with the ladies at Bath’s award winning The Pump Room. For dinner, the Michelin starred Park Restaurant at the Lucknam Park Hotel is the best place to go if you’re looking for true decadence. For ladies with a sweet tooth, why not try a Chocolate Making Workshop as a fabulous alternative to an Afternoon Tea.
Bath hen party guide – Nightlife
Bath may be small but it is buzzing with stuff to do at night. For something laidback, traditional English pubs are plentiful along the streets of Bath, serving local beers and ales alongside popular wines to be enjoyed in beautiful beer gardens in the summer or next to a roaring open fire come winter. If that new dress is just begging to be worn then why not start the night with a cocktail (or four) at Sub13 where a generous selection of cocktails is 2 for 1 between 5 and 8pm. After those cocktails you’ll be raring to hit the dance floor and there is nowhere better to dance the night away than at The Second Bridge. With a stylish clientele and three swanky bars it’s just perfect for a Girls’ Night Out.
Bath hen party guide – Unusual Activities
It won’t be lost on bookworms that Bath was home to Jane Austen for a substantial period of time. Delve deeper into this much loved author’s life at the Jane Austen Centre. Next, take a peek at fashion through the ages at Bath’s very own Museum of Fashion.
If these works of art have left your hands twitching for an artistic outlet then why not try out a Polestars Life Drawing class where, under the instruction of a professional tutor, you can create your own beautiful portrait of an equally beautiful man who will pose just for and your friends.
Bath hen party guide – Entertainment
If what you’re really after is a good giggle then Komedia is ready and waiting, serving up rip-roaring laughter at some of the funniest comedy nights around. Bath is also home to a selection of beautiful theatres including the artsy Ustinov Theatre and the more mainstream Theatre Royal which plays host to some of the best touring shows direct from London’s West End including your favourite musicals. For those wishing they were on the stage instead of watching it, Polestars can help with their amazing Dirty Dancing class. Learn the dances from the now famous stage show and show them off to your friends because, remember: nobody puts Baby in the corner.
Bath hen party guide- R & R
It would be a travesty to visit Bath – famous for its Roman baths – without indulging in a little bit of R & R. While you can’t unfortunately take a dip in the old baths, you can relax in style at any of their modern descendants. Let yourself be pampered from head to toe at the ultra-luxurious Thermae Spa with one of their amazing packages, then lie back and relax in their open air thermal bath. For something more beauty oriented, Hands On Health can have you tanned up, made up and looking like a model in no time.
