Christmas at the Crescent

Wreath-making, Nutcracker-hunting, Festive Films and more!

This December the Royal Crescent Hotel is the perfect place to base yourself for an afternoon, evening or a longer visit, to enjoy all that Bath has to offer at Christmas time.

The RCH is a pleasant 10-minute stroll from the famous Bath Christmas Markets, where you can sup mulled wine, browse the stalls and finish your Christmas shopping.

When you're ready to rest your feet, come back to the hotel, take a seat in our gardens, and we'll bring you hot chocolate and blankets to snuggle under. (If the weather isn't great, you can sink into a cosy chair in our bar instead.)

Fairy lights and lanterns will light the way as you hunt the Nutcrackers that are hidden throughout the hotel's gardens; solve the puzzle and you'll be rewarded with a festive treat!

We'll be serving festive afternoon teas throughout the season, so come and bite into a yummy Santa's tummy and other Christmassy treats. We'll also be screening some of your favourite Christmas films in our cosy library on certain dates, so keep an eye on our website for screening times!

If you want to get your creative juices flowing, join us on December 6th and you can make your very own festive wreath. Or, if you're feeling energetic, ask our concierge about nearby ice-skating and glow in the dark mini-golf - a stone's throwaway from the hotel!
