Our tips for stress free Christmas Shopping
Here are some of our top tips to ensure that your Christmas shopping is an experience filled with sparkle rather than stress…
» Visit mid-week – weekends can be very busy in Bath, especially over the duration of the Christmas Market. If possible, try and visit during the week, or take advantage of the late night shopping hours.
» Plan ahead – order a Bath Visitor Guide brochure, browse the VisitBath website or call our helpful information service (0906 711 2000 50p / min) to help plan your trip as much as possible before arrival.
» Use public transport – avoid sitting in city centre traffic and queuing for parking spaces by travelling by train, bus or one of the three Park & Ride services. Additional Park & Ride buses are now running on Sundays and over the Christmas period this year, to help with capacity.
» Rest and refuel – with so many great places to eat and drink in Bath, break up your shopping trip with lunch and coffee stops - a great chance to rest your legs whilst enjoying some fantastic food.
» Get festive! – Pop into one of the shoppers’ Carol Services at Bath Abbey that run on Saturdays leading up to Christmas. This uplifting, Christmassy experience is guaranteed to get you in the festive mood.
» Reward yourself – after a long, but successful day of Christmas shopping, there’s nothing better than getting back to your hotel and making use of the spa facilities. Whether you indulge in a pampering treatment or simply unwind in the pool, booking your accommodation at a spa hotel in Bath offer the perfect chance to unwind.
