Swim Inside an 18th Century Chapel Turned into a Pool

... in a town called Bath.

Nestled in Southwest England’s green-hilled countryside is possibly the most aptly named town on the map, Bath. Known for its natural hot springs and 18th-century Georgian architecture, Bath is also home to the famous Royal Crescent Hotel; a historic property built between 1767 and 1774 that now houses modern amenities and a 5-star spa, which includes an ancient chapel with a pool in it.

The Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa has been visited by countless notable residents, and stands as one of the United Kingdom’s utmost epitomes of Georgian style. The inside gives total pure, white, royalty vibes, with each room fit to be the setting of a Vogue editorial at any second. Classical paintings, luxurious furnishings, and crystal chandeliers are found innumerably throughout the sprawling crescent. But the pool outshines it all, literally inside what used to be a church, with huge stained-glass windows, stone walls and flooring, and candles for mood. Now pray silently in your Versace bathing suit, my child – you’re in heaven now. 

The Royal Crescent offers a range of rooms and suites, and features a stunning gourmet restaurant serving up modern takes on classic dishes, a bar and champagne lounge, afternoon tea, outdoor gardens, and infinite spa options. You may not know the Queen, but you’ll know what she’s getting. Book your stay here
