Planning the perfect Christmas Party in Bath, 2019

It’s never too early to start thinking about planning your 2019 Christmas party. After all, you don’t want to end up being last to the party and missing out on the best places to celebrate! The historic city of Bath is the perfect place to soak up (or dip into) the magic of Christmas. Whilst you can’t go wrong with all the traditions the festive season brings to the city, this year, we’re looking at how you can put a wild spin on your 2019 Christmas parties and take your festive soiree to all whole new level because after all… maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store… maybe it means a little bit more…


That’s right, we’re stealing Christmas, and you’re all invited! This December, we’ll be transforming our stunning Landsown Suite at our Apex City of Bath Hotel into a winter Whoville wonderland. Our Grouchy Private Parties will see your private space decked out with all the Grinch themed treats you can think of, whilst our Holly Jolly Shared Christmas Parties will sure keep those grouchy grinches at bay with a party like Whoville has never seen before! And from our Grinch twist to Santa approved festivities, we’ve taken care of it all. Check out of our classic festive dining options if Whoville isn’t quite your scene.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the award-winning Bath Christmas Market, back this year for 18 days of magical offerings! With around 150 twinkling chalets dabbled throughout Bath, start your party off by browsing the many stalls featuring special artisan gifts, whilst keeping toasty with an aromatic mulled wine in hand, not to mention the delicious bites you can grab on the go whilst you peruse the stunning Georgian streets.

When Royal Victoria Park turns to frost we know Christmas is just around the corner. With 1,000m2 of ice to come, it’s going to be their biggest year ever! So get your skates on and glide your way through the festive season, which always makes for a laugh and provides some classic Instagram-worthy festive material. As night falls, head for their Glow in the Dark Mini Golf pop-up, it makes for some perfect banter with your friends or colleagues and will work up your appetite for a delicious wood-fired pizza.
