As the largest city in Somerset, Bath has plenty of things to do and see – and makes for a fantastic UK hen break. Renowned for its Roman baths, the city centre’s waters draw visitors in from all over the world. In fact, the Thermae Bath Spa has the only natural hot springs in the UK that you can relax in. 

When you’re not in the spa, head out into Bath and explore the quaint streets which are filled with shops, wine and gin bars and restaurants. Some of our favourites include Sub 13, The Cork, and Hall and WoodhousePacked with everything you need for a UK city break, there’s also an impressive selection of galleries, museums, theatres and music venues. A rich cultural calendar means there’s always something going on too. Plus, there’s plenty of hen activities in Bath that will guarantee a laugh.

Just 11 miles away sits Bristol and if you’re looking for somewhere to explore, Somerset’s countryside – including Stonehenge and Avebury – is sure to impress. It might be a little further afield compared to other UK hen do destinations – it’s around 90 miles from London – but take our word for it, a Bath hen weekend is definitely worth it. We also have lots of hen party houses in the area to put the cherry on the top. 

Once there, it’s really easy to get around too. Plus, with endless picture opportunities, your social media will never have looked so good. You see, Bath isn’t a World Heritage site for no reason. In fact, it’s one of the UK’s most beautiful cities.
