Family fun and entertainment in Bath

Planning a great staycation with the kids in Bath this summer, then you’re sure to be spoilt by the diversity of entertainment and activities on offer for little ones this holiday season. Bath may be beautiful, but it’s also great to help beat the feared ‘holiday boredom’, take a look at some of the highlights happening across the city over the coming weeks…

For a touch of mindfulness take in the splendid surroundings of the American Museum & Gardens, with children’s yoga classes running every Friday throughout school holidays. Those aged between four and seven are welcome to have a go at yoga based around a different story or theme each week.

Meanwhile, there is fun to be had by all the family with inclusive creative workshops run by local artists across weekdays in August at the Holburne Museum. Little ones can also enjoy some creative reign at the nearby Victoria Art Gallery, with creative activities themed around the latest exhibitions weekly on Wednesdays throughout the summer. If that wasn’t already enough all children over three can design a pair of shoes using colour and collage at the Fashion Museum on Tuesdays too.

It’s hard to beat an old-fashioned treasure hunt, so you might want to roam the city and spend some quality time whilst the kids have fun cracking clues in search of historical hidden treasure. Treasure Hunt Bath’s self-guided puzzle-solving tour can be adapted for all ages to get involved. Alternatively, you could join the Big Summer Scavenger Hunt by Julian House, running until 7th August. Solve riddles in search for treasure, with a chance to win prizes in aid of a good cause. Donations welcomed for taking part.

When the sun comes out why not enjoy an outdoor performance with all the family, with an exciting line-up of alfresco theatre, music and cinema coming to life across the city.  Take a seat at the Holburne Museum’s Garden Theatre Festival or savour summer sounds from Jamma de Samba on ‘Summer Sundays’, from beach bars to face painting for the little ones to have fun. However, if you’re keen to escape the city for a day then why not pay a visit to Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park, packed with a variety of furry animals, tractor rides and wildlife walks, or try an adventure at Longleat Safari Park in neighbouring Wiltshire.

No matter what you get up to this summer, Bath Self Catering are ready to welcome you.
