Here Come the Girls: Weekend Getaway Ideas

With the May bank holiday on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to arrange a girly catch up with the bff’s. From chocolate tasting in York to spa breaks in Bath, discover the best city breaks for girls with Fiorelli.

Go Chocolate Tasting in York

Indulge your love of cocoa by travelling to the UK’s chocolate capital; York. Celebrate all things sweet with a whistle-stop tour of York and learn about the history of the iconic Kit Kat and Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

Try your hand at designing a chocolate concoction of your own; sample sweet treats in a plethora of themed cafes and when you’ve had enough sugar, work it off by browsing the various fashion boutiques and independent jewellers dotted around the city. 

Pamper Yourself with a Girly Weekend Away in Bath

For a weekend of sheer pampering head to the quaint city of Bath. A haven of independent shops, cute restaurants and stunning architecture, Bath is the ideal destination for a hen do or girly catch up weekend.

Relax and unwind in the Thermae Bath Spa where you can take your pick of 3 amazing heated pools and a range of beautifully scented saunas such as eucalyptus and mint. The Thermae Bath Spa is the UK’s only natural thermal spa and taking a trip to the open air rooftop offers visitors unrivalled views over Bath- you may even catch a sun tan!

After the spa, head to Aqua Italia – a chic restaurant serving up authentic Italian food in the heart of Bath. From hand-stretched pizzas to lobster ravioli, the stylish environment and friendly staff make this a great place to line the stomach before some cheeky cocktails at Sub 13.

Shop ‘til you Drop in London

If it’s retail therapy that you’re craving, there’s nowhere else like London. From the cobbled streets of Carnaby Street to the attractive Covent Garden armed with enough flagship stores to keep you busy for hours, London is a shopping paradise.

Once the shops have closed, head to Le Relais de Venise in Marylebone for arguably the best steak in London. The menu is simple; steak, chips, salad and secret sauce- but it works so well. Each table are served a salad starter, accompanied by steak and frites and a final course of even more steak and frites all accompanied by a delicious secret sauce. It’s every steak lover’s dream.
