With Mother’s Day fast approaching, the city of Bath has a number of special ways to celebrate. For those looking to spoil Mum with a special present or spend a leisurely day together, here are some of our favourite ideas to help get you started…
A taste of Bath
Many restaurants in and around Bath are offering Mother’s Day menus to celebrate the special day in style. Head to the Kilted Chef and enjoy pan fried black bream or Highland roast Scottish beef for £23.50 for three courses. The well-reputed Olive Tree is offering three courses for £35 with options such as slow cooked salmon, sirloin of beef or pan fried cod. Or book a table at the Allium Brasserie – awarded three AA Rosettes – where you can order three courses for £39 and choose from their delicious menu of smoked trout pate, fisherman’s pie and roast pork with all the trimmings.
Or for some family fun, favourite Bath restaurant, The Stable is holding a competition for children to draw the best picture of their Mum. The winner will receive a meal for four as well as a family portrait photo shoot or makeover and photo session.
Give your Mum a taste of relaxation at the Thermae Bath Spa. Utilising the naturally warm water that rises from the ground in Bath, the Spa features two bathing pools, one indoors, and one on the rooftop, overlooking the city and surrounding countryside. There are also a number of treatments and therapies available.
Being a spa city, Bath isn’t short on places to be pampered and preened! Look out for special offers this Mother’s Day such as the 90 minute treatment package at skincare and therapy centre, Hands on Health. The packages includes a 30 minute back massage, a 30 minute facial and a 30 minute manicure with complimentary morning coffee or afternoon tea and a glass of bubbly for £60.
Spas ancient & modern
No visit to Bath is complete without seeing the Roman Baths. A special ticket that includes a visit to the Roman Baths, a two hour session at Thermae Bath Spa and a three course lunch or Champagne afternoon tea at the Pump Room makes a really special day out.
Delightful afternoon tea
With so many places to choose from, and a delicious array of fine teas, delicate sandwiches and a selection of mouth-watering cakes and scones, it’s easy to see why this indulgent treat is still as popular in Bath today as it was in the city’s thriving Georgian times. On every corner you’ll find a hotel, café or tearoom to enjoy afternoon tea. But, it’s the famous Pump Room that’s the most popular place, set in one of the city’s most elegant and impressive buildings.
Explore Bath’s fashionable side
One of Bath’s leading attractions, the Fashion Museum will be offering free entry when booking a Mother’s Day Lunch or afternoon tea at the Assembly Rooms Café. The lunch will be accompanied by live jazz and an option of two (£20) or three courses (£25) will be available. The Champagne Tea will include a glass of bubbly, tea sandwiches, mini macaroons, homemade scones with cream and jam and a pot of tea or coffee for £19.25. The Fashion Museum holds a world-class collection of contemporary and historical dress with 150 dressed figures to illustrate the changing styles in fashionable clothes from the late 16th century to the present day. The museum is also currently hosting a special exhibition to celebrate 300 years since the beginning of the Georgian era – Georgians: Dress for polite society.
After visiting the Fashion museum, enjoy an afternoon of shopping. Bath’s wonderful array of high street stores, mixed with individual and designer boutiques, all within a beautiful, compact shopping area make it a great place for a day’s bonding and retail therapy. Visit Milsom Street, home to Jolly’s, one of the oldest departments stores in the world, and Milsom Place, where you can stop for refreshment in the charming courtyard – a haven from the bustling streets. Or explore South Gate, Bath’s newest shopping area with all the favourite high street stores.
