Honeymoon in Bath
Continued (page 3 of 3)
But wherever the two of you choose to stay in and around Bath, whether on a hilltop crescent or deep in the countryside, you'll be making plans to return to this corner of English paradise very soon.
If you are planning a London visit either before or after your trip to Bath, consider Knightsbridge in the West End. Here you will find not only the storied Harrods and the young woman's favorite, the hip Harvey Nichols shop, but also Beauchamp (say Beecham) Street, chockablock with trendy restaurants like San Lorenzo.
Two Knightsbridge hotels (both long on substance and style) are the Berkeley and the Egerton House Hotel. The Berkeley, across from Hyde Park, is the ultimate in quiet chic, while the tiny, tony Egerton House, though just around the corner from busy Brompton Road, feels as secluded as a country estate.
For your journey to or from Bath, consider hopping aboard BritRail, which offers a seamless 90-minute cruise through the countryside. Book a pair of cushy first-class seats, and an attendant will ply you with TLC. Crossing the pond is a simple and stylish proposition with Virgin Atlantic Airlines, which offers all kinds of amenities for upper-class passengers—all the way from a comfy seat that rolls back into a bed to a massage in a darkened corner.
