How To Visit Bath During COVID 19

The World Heritage listed city of Bath in the United Kingdom offers visitors a journey into pleasure and relaxation. The original wellbeing destination traces its origins back to Roman times and has provided rest and repose for pleasure seekers for hundreds of years. The good news is that you too can now visit this beautiful destination as the city reopens following COVID-19 travel restrictions. In this article we provide you with some practical tips and up to date advice on how to enjoy the historic city.

This helpful guide was prepared with the most current available information. To find the most accurate information in an everchanging situation, head to www.visitbath.co.uk and www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Thermal baths

Bath Spa

A visit to Bath centres on the thermal baths. Visitors have two primary options: The Roman Baths or the Thermae Bath Spa. The Roman Baths surround the visitor with history and tradition, while the Thermae Bath Spa promises modernity and sophistication. According to the latest official advice, The Roman Baths require pre booking, so jump online at www.romanbaths.co.uk and secure your place. While booking your ticket and browsing the various ticket options, read the most current social distancing guidelines. At the time of publication, The Thermae Bath Spa was closed, but keep an eye on their website www.thermaebathspa.com for updates. An alternative is The Soul Spa, which offers therapies promoting mental and emotional wellbeing, and can be found at www.thesoulspa.co.uk.

Gardens

Bath is also home to many beautiful and popular gardens, which complement perfectly an indulgent dip in a thermal bath. A number of gardens are currently open to visitors and these include the American Museum and Gardens, The Bishop’s Palace and Gardens and Prior Park Landscape Garden. Revel in the gorgeous surrounds of these manicured masterpieces, and take home some inspiration for your own garden.

Another enticing attraction is Dyrham Park, an Ancient Deer Park, 17th century house and garden. The park is open only to visitors who pre book, and booking must be made by 3pm the day before the visit. To ensure you don’t miss out, visit here.

Walking tours

A walking tour of Bath is a great way to take some pleasant exercise in the sun and fresh air. What’s more, the certified tours from Bath Walking Tours provide an insight into the fascinating history of the city. Due to COVID-19 procedures, the socially distanced walks are currently limited to groups of 6 people or less, so go to www.bathwalkingtours.co.uk in order to claim a spot on an informative stroll around the city.  As an added bonus, a walking tour is a sound way to work up an appetite before devouring a meal at one of the commendable cafes and restaurants in the city.

Delve further into the history of the ancient city at The Holborne Museum and Bath Abbey. The guidelines for The Holborne Museum are similar to those suggested at many sites throughout Bath, and they include:

  • Avoiding a visit if you show any symptoms associated with COVID-19
  • Sanitising your hands upon entry
  • Maintaining a safe distance between yourself and other visitors
  • Wearing a face covering inside the museum
  • Refraining from touching cases and other surfaces
  • Paying by credit card or other cashless option
  • Sneezing or coughing into your elbow
  • Following the directions of staff at all times

Accommodation

Bath spoils guests with its choice and quality of accommodation. Most accommodation providers have reopened and official advice suggests researching and enquiring directly with the accommodation providers to find out about vacancies and health and safety procedures. New industry standard marks demonstrate which businesses, including accommodation providers, have made necessary changes to their operations to maximise the health and safety of guests. Look for these marks on relevant websites, including on www.super-host.co.uk.

Visitors can rest assured that their stay will be as safe as possible. Accommodation providers in Bath are taking measures to protect guests, such as placing extra sanitiser, hand gel and soap in rooms. Rooms are also being left vacant for 24 hours after the cleaners finish and before the next guests check in to the room. In addition, cleaning staff are wearing PPE while they clean. Precautions such as these are being taken by many providers, and a comprehensive list of accommodation in Bath can be found at www.super-host.co.uk. Check the website for last minute deals, then start packing your bags.

Dining

Bath is a genuine foodie city. The good news is that most of the cafes, restaurants and bars are open so you can start and end your day with a sumptuous delight. Eateries are also following COVID-19 guidelines so you may need to pre book a table and leave your contact details upon entry. Many venues are offering take away and expanding their outdoor seating so you can dine al fresco and engage in some people watching. While you may notice reduced menu options, you can still partake of the food and drink that has earned Bath a reputation as a culinary destination, and you can inject some money into an industry hit hard by the corona lockdowns.

If you plan to treat yourself to a fine dining experience, reserve a table at Bouvardia Restaurant, Hondo Sushi or Cloisters Restaurant. If you are craving local cuisine try a dish at Menu Gordon Jones, The Olive Tree, The Circus Restaurant or The Bathwick Boatman Riverside Restaurant. For meals which reward your taste buds but leave some pounds in your wallet, check out Sotto Sotto, Eight or Noya’s Kitchen, and for a quick, cheap and tasty delight, grab a bite at Jc’s Kitchen, LJ Hugs, Juno Bar and Kitchen or The Grocer Café.

Whichever options you chose in Bath, you are sure to leave satisfied.

Safari
