Located in central Bath our bed and breakfast is ideally located for shopping and sampling the numerous restaurants and cafes in Bath’s Milsom Place. The city also offers other more cultural and sporting activities such as the Roman Baths and the races and, last but not least, the many festivals for which Bath is world famous.
An ideal time to celebrate your hen weekend in Bath is during the fashion festival which takes place in April each year. Bath in Fashion is one of the biggest fashion festivals outside of London Fashion Week. The week is not just about the ‘clothes’ but a celebration of all things fashion, the people that make it all happen, from the models to the stylists. As well as being a showcase for some of the biggest names in fashion, with the attendance of the like of Rolan Mouret, Bath in Fashion features special events that have included an illustration master class with David Downton. Each year Bath in Fashion provides a wealth of fun and unique experiences for the stylish and discerning lady. As with the other festivals in Bath, accommodation and tickets go very quickly so booking well in advance is very much advised.
With fashion being high on the agenda during the Bath in Fashion week, it makes perfect sense to indulge in the many wonderful shopping areas that the city has to offer with a group of friends. The Southgate area is the newest shopping area and includes many of the high street branded retailers for you to choose from. The Artisan Quarter lives very much up to its name with its quirky stores and is considered to be the creative and cultural part of the city, famed for its reclaimed antiques, home furnishings and crafts. Close by is the Western Area were you can find local traders to Bath selling locally produced items such as leather goods.
If you want to include some pampering as part of your hen weekend in Bath, The Cross Bath at the world renowned Thermae Spa can be hired exclusively for up to 12 people and would be the ideal venue for some pre-wedding spoiling especially as you can arrange for drinks and canapés to be served.
Having indulged your party during the day with either shopping or spa treats we like to help our guests to continue their celebrating in style. Our welcoming reception rooms make the perfect setting for pre-dinner drinks at Dukes. Our team will be on hand to serve drinks before your party head into Bath to savour some of leading restaurants that the city has to offer. And, if your celebrations take you late into the night, then with some prior arrangement we will be on hand to welcome you back in the early hours!
On your return, we may arrange a little midnight snack of our famous Somerset cheeses and a glass or two of 10 year old Taylors port or perhaps simply a hot chocolate and biscuits in the pantry to tide you over until it’s time to wake refreshed and ready for our hearty breakfast.
Once your party is rested you will be offered a specially prepared breakfast by our professionally trained chef. Our breakfasts consist of a fantastic range of produce, including a traditional full English breakfast, and for vegetarians who are happy to eat fish we may prepare poached haddock, kippers, and smoked salmon sourced from just over the county border in Paignton. We also offer a continental breakfast which can include sweet home baked pastries, rye bread or croissants, alongside freshly percolated coffee.
In order to make the most of your regal yet cosy room, and taking into account a champagne filled day before, we continue to serve breakfast until the more leisurely time of 10am on Sunday mornings, thus enabling you to round off your hen weekend in Bath in a relaxed manner.
We look forward to helping you put together the perfect luxury hen weekend and if there is anything else we may help you with then please do get in touch. Bath is a vibrant and beautiful city and a truly great location to celebrate an upcoming wedding; where better to stay than here at Dukes?
