This Christmas, travel through the ages in a UNESCO World Heritage city. We begin in Roman times, tasting the healing waters at the magnificent 2,000-year-old baths and exploring the magnificent abbey, site of the first coronation of an English monarch. At No. 1 Royal Crescent, we imagine life as a wealthy 18th century Bath resident. After a wonderful Christmas Day lunch, we spend a fun Boxing Day travelling on the Avon Valley Railway.

Day 1
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to the outskirts of Bath. We aim for you to arrive at the hotel between 4pm and 5pm and you’ll be greeted with tea, coffee and mince pies, followed by time to relax.

Day 2
Spend today enjoying a tour of the charming city of Bath. First is the Roman Baths - Britain’s most famous Roman thermal spa. An audio guide tour takes you through a fascinating museum. Thousands of excavated objects are displayed here, revealing the fashions and beliefs of the people of Aquae Sulis, illustrating the importance of this 2,000-year-old complex. The tour ends at the magnificent centrepiece - the Great Bath, filled with steaming spa water, where you can taste it if you wish. Next is Bath Abbey, where the first King of all England, King Edgar, was crowned in AD 973. The impressive Gothic exterior has unique ladders of angels decorating the west front. There’s free time for lunch, with many cafés to choose from, before our final visit for today to No. 1 Royal Crescent. This museum, at the end of the beautiful Georgian terrace, is decorated and furnished as it may have been around 1776-1796, showing what life was like for the wealthy residents and their servants.

Day 3
Today is for relaxing and enjoying the festivities. A glass of Buck’s Fizz heralds a traditional Christmas Day lunch, with a glass of wine whilst you tuck in. Christmas cake will be served later in the afternoon.

Day 4
We’ll travel to Bitton and its beautifully restored Victorian train station, to board the Avon Valley Railway. We’ll rattle through the lovely countryside in a heritage carriage, pulled by a steam or diesel locomotive. The six-mile round trip takes us north to Oldland Common, then south to Avon Riverside before returning to Bitton. We’ll return to the hotel later in the day.

Day 5
You’ll be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
