Why stress out over the holidays at home when you can be wined, dined, and pampered at The Bath Priory for the Christmas holidays? Staff at the historic hotel, located just outside of London’s city centre, have planned a luxurious three -day package. Guests will enjoy a spa treatment, a carriage ride through London, a three-course dinner on Christmas Eve and midnight mass in the beautiful Bath Abbey. On Christmas Day, choose between opening presents and taking a stroll in the landscaped gardens. Later that day, Champagne will be served before guests enjoy a traditional Christmas lunch. Afterward, the Queen’s speech will be shown in the Drawing Room followed by early evening readings and music by ‘Curtain Call,’ who are returning to The Bath Priory for their fourth year. By choosing a four night Christmas package visitors can add a trip to Bath’s famous Thermae Spa – the only place in the UK where you can bathe in natural thermal waters.
