Bath time: relax in a Roman spa

Bath

Get there: Get the 8.30am train from Paddington, arriving in Bath Spa at 10am. Advance Saturday fare, £28 for two singles.

Morning: See Bath from a unique angle and stop off wherever you fancy by hiring a narrowboat. Try Bath Narrowboats, which offers half-day hire on a boat that holds up to six for £85.  

Afternoon: After returning your narrowboat, be sure to check out Britain’s only hot spring (Bath ain’t called Bath for nothing). The temple that the Romans built around it still remains; take a tour before grabbing afternoon tea in the 18th-century Pump Room

Evening: The water at the Roman Baths is considered unsafe for bathing, but Thermae Bath Spa has siphoned off the hot waters for its pools, including an amazing one on the rooftop. Go for a twilight session to watch the sun sink over Bath’s rooftops while you bathe.

Get back: Last train is at 10.43pm, arriving in PAD at 12.33am.


Hit the shops: Birmingham’s Bullring


Birmingham

Get there: Get the 8am train from Marylebone, arriving in Birmingham Snow Hill at 10.09am. Advance Saturday fare, £12 two singles.

Morning: With more miles of canals than Venice, take a stroll along the water’s edge, stopping for a spot of early lunch at bustling Brindley Place.

Afternoon: It’s not often we’d send you to a shopping centre but The Mailbox, formally a Royal Mail sorting office, is a great spot, plus it houses the BBC Public Space, where you can watch live broadcasts and even have a go yourself (not live, though).

Evening: Catch a flick at the retro Electric, the oldest working cinema in the UK – it even has an interval organ.

Get back: Last train is at 9.34pm from Birmingham New Street, arriving in Euston at 12.40am.
