The return of "Hunt the Nutcrackers"!

Can you find all nine and solve the puzzle?

*** Residents and non-residents welcome! ***

Our "Hunt the Nutcracker" game was a real hit last year, so we've asked these nine upstanding soldiers to return to the RCH again this festive period!

From 3rd December through to 4th January (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day for non-residents), the festive Nutcrackers will be hiding around our twinkling gardens.

Each Nutcracker has a letter tied to his or her wrist; solve the puzzle and you'll be rewarded with a festive treat! You will also enjoy 10% off food and beverage - simply show your completed form to your server.

Pick up a puzzle sheet in reception. In the spirit of the season, the Nutcracker Hunt is free of charge. Booking is not necessary, although visitors are required to observe the rule of six and social distancing per current government guidance. Adults and children welcome!

What else is happening this Christmas at the Crescent?

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 high street, where you can 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.)

We'll be serving festive afternoon teas throughout the season, so come and bite into a yummy Santa's tummy and other Christmassy treats. 

If you're feeling energetic, ask our concierge about nearby glow in the dark mini-golf - a stone's throwaway from the hotel!
