We all know the feeling that comes along with Christmas. You end up rushing to get everything done and you feel panicked and stressed about what should be one of the best and most enjoyable times of the year. It’s no wonder many of us feel better when the rush and hassle is over and we can actually sit down and rest!

So why not get to Bath early in the New Year and book a weekend away for a visit to their Thermae Bath Spa? It is definitely one of the best ways to kick off the New Year and ensure you have the best possible time to yourself to recover form all the excitement of Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

The spa is closed for the first week of January for routine maintenance, but from the 8th onwards you can enjoy all the best features of Britain’s only naturally occurring thermal spa. Just imagine all those knots and tensions disappearing as you indulge in some of the wonderful services they have on offer there. Be sure you book in advance so you can look forward to spending a day or longer at the spa, enjoying all the treatments they have to offer.

One of the best ways to enjoy all the highlights of the spa in Bath is to go for a spa package. These are specially designed to give you a number of treatments, depending on which package you choose. If the idea of a Bath weekend appeals to you, make sure you book your Bath accommodation as soon as possible and arrange a session in the spa. You will certainly be glad you did as they have several delightful options available for you to choose from.

Of course you can also take advantage of seeing the rest of Bath if you are spending a UK weekend break there. The city is delightful and has many wonderful features that are worth seeing. The Pulteney Bridge is just one of them – and indeed one of the few bridges in the world that has shops running across its length. It is certainly quite an experience and one that you will delight in having.

Elsewhere you have many other sights to see. Sally Lunn’s buns are worth a taste too, and you can also sit and eat them in Bath’s oldest house. It just goes to show you how many different things there are to do here. Whatever else you want to do in between those all important spa sessions you have booked, you can definitely have a great time in Bath.

It is partly the history of this city that draws so many people towards it. But it can also be the fact that it is home to the only naturally occurring spa in Britain – a fact that is undeniably very tempting. So if you are fed up and tired after the Christmas and New Year break, perhaps you should think about visiting Bath early in 2011?
