Week of Wellness
As the only day spa in the UK with access to natural thermal water, Thermae Bath Spa has wellness at the very core of its offering and its ethos. Every day, guests come to ‘take the waters’ and let the heat and minerals work their magic.
This year Thermae is taking part in National Spa Week by hosting a series of special events designed to celebrate the history, culture and well-being synonymous with the Spa City of Bath.
Most of the events and activities, which run from Monday 30th October to Saturday 4th November, are free.
